    Perhaps try just cropping up to the post to hold them in the picture. Liking the composition/contrast/sky. The closest guitar looks better in the 1st pic, a little blown out in the 2nd.

    Thanks for your comment Ady. It was originally blown out in the first and had to bring it back in using layers. I forgot to do it on the second image. :(

    I really like the 1st. The crop on the 2nd puts too much emphasis on the car in my brain.

    As much as I appreciate the car and the contrast of the image....her hair in his face is the FIRST thing I noticed.

    Nice shot, quite the age range in that band.

    Thanks guys.
    Agreed, the hair blowing across his face is annoying.
    I'm wondering how hard it would be to clone the hair out.

    I like the shot overall. The hair in the face is unfortunate it could be tough to make a clean edit on that. Let us know how it turns out.
    Great work on the sky. I love how the tonality gets light as it approaches the horizon, pulling the image right down into the band members.
