Radio City Christmas Spectacular

POST #    2663

Last night, we went with my parents to see the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. With my new, youthful haircut, it made sense to sit in a crowd with all the other children. But seriously, The Rockettes were amazing. But I could have done without the dancing bears, the Santa Claus mumbo jumbo (though the dancing Santas were entertaining), and the Jesus story. Just make the show 100% Rockettes exhausting themselves for an hour and I think you've got a hit!

Then again, they've been doing it for 75 years, so they probably won't listen to me.

What were your settings on your camera for those great pictures? What mode were you using and what lense?

Yeah, well....I hear Jesus doesn't like you either. ;)

Thanks so much for the details. I'm slowly learning how to use my Rebel XT and appreciate learning from others. Very cool pics - as always!

As many of Musicals lovers I LOVE the Radio City Christmas Spectacular! It is my favourite ever... Last year I’ve been in NY & I tried to get my ticket …guess what everything was sold out that show how great the show is.
