    Scottish Mayhem is a group out of Houston, TX and played at Scarborough Faire. Here's a few shots of them, comments and critique appreciated.

    Nice work. I'd #5 is best of all. Nice range of colors, warm tones, and pretty good composition on some. But #6 has a snapshot-ish feel to it.

    Although i really do love these shots, i think you could have been a little more creative with the angles and composition.

    5 is definately the best...excellent shot! Personally,when I see shots of musicians I love seeing them during the act of singing or playing. Miles blowing, Roach at the moment of a snare impact, Hendrix strumming that harmonic (and smelling something bad).

    In 5 he is clearly in the act of playing. Some of the others seem like you missed the perfect time but just a second or 2.

    Otherwise, you have great color and clarity in most of the pics. I would actually remove the sephia and B&W effects on the two pics. There is too much interesting colors in the shots to remove them from the pic.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Thanks for the comments all.

    I was limited in how much I could move around as they were performing, and I need to keep my seat to not be rude (it was a very small performance, maybe 50 people.)

    RoRoCo--I wasn't sure about the conversions either. I'm going to send these to their webmaster to see if they'd like to use any of them for their site, so I thought I'd send a variety of effects.

    #6 I was proud of simply for the fact I managed to keep everybody sitting in front of me out of the picture, LOL!!!

    And I was shooting with prime lenses, no zooms!

    LOL!!!

    I guess I should have just been rude, others were. It was funny I got knocked out of the way by a local newspaper photographer later in the day. They can be real jerks sometimes. :thumbdown: Oh well.
