I do not know this band but this image makes me want to be there listening. Every aspect of it brings attention to the energy of the music and the makers and the scene. Bravo!   Posted: 05/21/2022 21:09:05

Love the color, glitter and lighting. Very nicely done, conveying real emotion in the facial expression of the singer. Sharp focus despite the lighting challenges and motion of the singer. This is a real winner!   Posted: 05/24/2022 10:51:52

I agree with Zina and Alec: a very nice image. You caught a great facial expression and posture for the singer. If I really stretch to think of things that MIGHT improve the image (might not...depends on what effect you were after), I can point to the red lights and the strong, focused spill-over of blue light behind the singer that some might think of as a distraction. I took your shot into Capture One and applied a quick and dirty heal brush to those two areas to give you a sense of what I mean. Some spill-over of the blue light is important, I think, to the mood of the shot. I'm sure if you wanted to, you could do a cleaner heal edit on those spots of your original RAW file in Lightroom than I could do here. But very nice shot.   Posted: 05/24/2022 16:44:29
