    Not bad. The blur on these things tends to be somewhat unavoidable due to wanting to get the torch trails, so I wouldn't worry about that too much.

    Some of the unfortunate things with your shot (imo) are all the ugly background elements and that we can see too much of the stage, the people, and even to some degree the performerts (it's too wide and too bright).

    Generally I've found zooming in is best with these. You can also get some lucky shots where you can see expressions on the performers faces when you do this.

    If you can forgive my posting my pics in your thread, here are some examples...

    Thank you for your comments and suggestion. You are right and yours are much much better than mine. The background are really ugly. The aperture 4.0 is the largest one available. I think zooming in or choosing a better angle will be the option.

    BTW, i have a shot showing the performer's ‘expression’. Unfortunately, there are some similar problems on the ugly background. Anyway, pls c&c. [​IMG]

    Love that shot you just posted... has some other issues,and I think I would darken it a bit (your monitor may need calibration if all these are bright), but it's very cool.
