Photographing gigs is so hard to do justice. Here I think the elements are good, the composition, the slight out of focus band member in the b/g, the lead vocal pose and so into the music. However I do think the atmosphere is a little lacking. Did you use flash. If so, I may have been tempted to soften it a little (a white tissue often works well) and increase the shutter speed so it is open longer. This would add a little blurring and a little more feeling. I hope to see more. Best wishes. Paul.

Many thanks Paul I used a Stophen. I don't usually use flash in these situations but decided to experiment after attending a Canon workshop a couple of weeks ago. Advice much appreciated. There ar more shots to come. Simon

The Composition is very good. The flash is a bit harsh, and maybe reducing the depth of field could have improved? Besides that, it's a great picture!
