The band "Tenderleaves".
Unfortunately the white screen had to be there for light effects, so I had to crop it.
Edited in Lightroom 4, as usual. Tried a b&w version, simply because it's the easiest for me, being colour-blind Smile

Its a good shot. No issues with the screen the way its cropped. It can benefit with a little more contrast and sharpening, as in the mod.

There are numerous members who are colour blind that work in Mono, so youre not alone here!

Decent image that will benefit from a bit of contrast, a touch of sharpening and more dramatic lighting. You give us no technical details to go on. The two band members on each edge of the frame detractf from those in the centre for me, thus a much tighter crop either by zoom or software.

I might be told off here, but with these kind of shots, sometimes a slightly slower shutter speed would help in my opinion, to add that bit of movement to the arms and legs showing the kind of activity going on on stage. I don't think blurring is always a wrong thing and I started to learn to deviate from the "hard rules" that most times I wanted to conform with myself. What do others think about this? Would a bit of motion blur help the image here or ruin it?

I hadn't though of it but now that you mention it Alistair, I think that you're right. You couldn't overdo it but a slight motion in some hands and feet would work well.

It's good to see that you're thinking for yourself and shaking off the shackles of convention that can sometimes dominate here.

Amongst others, Bren, I have you to thank for breaking the shackles! I learnt the "rules", loved applying them, and now am trying to see where best to break them. I think in this case, some blurring in the limbs and a tighter central crop would improve the image.

Nothing wrong with some motion blur Alistair, but there should also be some sharp areas, - so it can sometimes add to the shot (I have a few band shots here blurred with slow shutter), and it can also sometimes spoil it, so s set that includes some variations is always worth trying. Its a bit like not putting all your eggs in the motion blur basket.

I think that you've got it just about spot-on with that mod.Alistair.

It would be easy to get carried away with the movement and you've been quite restrained.
