A couple more from the same night. This one shows more clearly that the color indoors was intentionally reddish. It also gives a sense of the really beautiful location for this wonderful concert/bar/dance spot.
And this final one is of the stage before the performance. Here you can see how they were playing with light colors that night.
Black GH-2, Blue G-2
P 20/1.7, PL 45/2.8, P 45-200, P 100-300, Oly 9-18, and a rarely-used kitzoom
Some of my favorite legacy glass:
Nikon AIS 24/2.8, 50/1.8, 105/1.8, 180/2.8
Contax CZ 135/2.8, 200/3.5, G45/2
Konica Hexanon 40/1.8, 57/1.4, 85/1.8

Lovely atmosphere caught on camera in the first image, José. The clipped highlights adds to the image, imho.

The Canon G7 is a fine camera that was a companion to my Zeiss Ikon and Canon 30D for some time. I didn't like it at first, but after I got used to how it worked, I carried it everywhere and took many fun images with it. I even took it to China for ten days and left the 30D at home, and given the amount of walking I did, I'm glad. Under many circumstances, the Canon G's like the G7 and G10 do just as well as a DSLR. Low light or shallow depth of field aren't their bags, but they are very versatile cameras nonetheless.
I snapped this on one of my regular photowalks through Melbourne's CBD. This is a view from Princess Bridge, which crosses the Yarra River, just south of the city centre.
The following image is of a lifesize statue by Bruno Torfs, modeled after the famous painting of the Lady of Shalott by Waterhouse. This statue was destroyed in a massive bushfire that ravaged the area, but one year after, I returned to see that it had been rebuilt.
The 6x zoom of the G7, coupled with a 35mm eq. wide angle, gives it a pretty versatile range. I especially like the G7's zoom for concerts and travel. This was taken in China, at the Shaolin Temple. The girls were standing on a very high stage that was on top of a high stone wall. Behind the wall, I saw dozens of these girls training by doing handstands for minutes at a time, feet supported by the wall.

Thanks Amin for sharing this great shot with us.
The G10 has an optical viewfinder. Is the effect of zooming visible (how) in the OVF ?
Or is OVF meant for mainly use in bright light (sunshine) ?
Have a nice day, Herman

Thanks for the photo! (Toward the end of a concert by Teresa Christina)
Personally I do believe that, regard the technical aspects of not to be a “good photo”, it is a superb picture, because it puts down the atmosphere of that moment, and that is what I think, makes this a great photo!

The praying mantis looks like the ultimate stealth weapon.
Great colors, you two!
