    Went to a local annual street fair where they close down a second of road for a couple of days and have a big carnival. The first three photos are from the day and the others are of the band at night. The night shots were all done handheld at 1600 ISO. This is my first attempt to shoot musicians on a stage.

    These are nice! Can I ask what your shutter speed was for the night shots?

    They were pretty high, actually. Most were around 1/100s. Based on that I probably could have dialled back my ISO to 800. That's one thing the 7D has over my T2i, the ability to adjust ISO by thirds of a stop. I think that's a real handy feature to have for low light shooting.

    i really like the one with the ferris wheel!

    a little tighter shots on the band i think would be a bit better.

    Thanks. I like the f-wheel too. I would have switched to my longer lens but all I had with me was the 17-50mm.

    #1 the blurry guy doesn't work if there's no obvious reason for the blur. he's not running or on a vehicle.

    #2 it's all blurry, even the mostly focused person. plus it appears stuff which *shouldn't* be blurry are. which ruins the photo. capture motion of the moving parts, not everything around it too

    #3. the foreground is crazy dark. why is it there?

    #4. too much dark foreground and some of the band is dark too.

    #5 you lost half the people and half the face of the singer

    #6 this one works, except you cut off half that woman

    #7 much the same problem as #5
