The composition and slope of the arena really give a sense of scale - that crowd is massive! - and the rich blue of the stage with his shadow cutting through really provides a very strong focal point. Waxy is right - this would be amazing as a huge poster! Wow, a stunning capture.

Every time I see the massive crowds that Obama attracts, it gives me hope for this November. X-rays...I was told a while back that the best thing to do, if you cannot get it developed professionally where you are visiting, is just ship your undeveloped film home ala Fedex. I never had to do it. Can someone comment whether FedEx/UPS x-ray their packages? That is a wonderful image.

One of the first I've seen that gives a real feeling for the size of that crowd. The most sensible sounding x-ray explanation I've heard was from a TSA lady in New Orleans who told me that dye-based films aren't effected unless really high speed, but silver-based emulsions just shouldn't be put through at all. Chemists chime in. Beautiful shot Michael. One of the first I’ve seen that gives a real feeling for the size of that crowd.

After 9/11 the x-rays must have gotten stronger, because they affect film regardless of what they tell at the airport. Get a roll of b&w negative. Have it x-rayed. Develop in one tank with a roll that was not x-rayed, hang both rolls side by side. You'll be shocked. I used to buy bulk films in the US and have friends brought them over to Europe. The last 100ft of trix I bought this way was practically unusable. No midtones. Completely flat. When I took this film on plane, it got even worse. My conlusion - it is relatively safe if they x-ray exposed films. However, you have to be extremely careful with unexposed films. I hate x-rays.
