    Smokin' Joe

    Joe Perry from Aerosmith, in concert at Yas Marina after the Formula 1 Grand Prix.

    Unfortunately the organisers wouldn't allow DSLR's on site, so I had to make do with my brother-in-law's Canon Ixus.

    Holy shutter lag, Batman!

    I managed to get a couple of reasonable shots though - here's one:

    Impressive, Phil, even with the shutter lag. The image depicts a lot of energy and I like the way you caught the lights in the background.

    In addition to Serge's comments, I like the dead space at the top.

    Thanks guys - this was back in 2009, and I've just dug the photo out. We managed to get right up close by one of the runways - great gig.

    This year it's Kylie Minogue, Eminem and someone else. How will Eminem get through a set without being able to swear? (not allowed in concerts in this part of the world!)

    Fingers crossed on Paddock and VIP after party tickets this year, if my brother-in-law has a few spare tickets. There should be a few photo ops coming my way...

    No restrictions on lenses at the circuit at all.

    Just in the concert afterwards. I went back to my car to drop everything off, or there are secure areas to drop off your gear by the concert venue - concerts go on until around 11pm I think on each day.

    If you're staying in Dubai then you can book a coach/bus
