    Hi, I'm a new guy here and this is my first post. I am already a member of a couple of other photography discussion forums, but I work on the principle that you can never get enough critique and guidance if you want to improve your photography!

    Here are a couple of shots I took on an overcast day. The musicians are dressed in traditional sea-faring costumes and playing "Songs of the Sea". They were under a white canvas, and I shot with no flash, trying to avoid harsh shadows etc.

    How do they look?

    Oh!, and yes, she is playing a trombone AND a drum at the same time :shock:

    Hi,

    Applying to both of them: the framing isn't great, there is a lot of extra bits and bobs in the image but they don't add to the overall composition. I know you had no choice but to shoot as things are, however I'd still have thought about the framing a little more before I took the photographs, as they stand they look like snapshots you'd take with an instant camera, there really isn't anything about these images that jumps out at me at all.

    Steve
