Hello Jana & Chung Wah,
These our two separate pictures taken during the Dervish dancers show, we went to with Jim.
The first one (background photo) I took zoming out,so you get the light effect. The second picture with the two dancers was taken during the show(no flash). Then I put them in photoshop together in two separate layers and brushed away part of the top layer.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
