Comment by OmanOtter:
Thanks for the memories! I lived in Oregon about 15 years ago and sometimes visited Sahalie Falls. We even walked behind the water once or twice. I sure wish I was there now. It must be about time for the Oregon Country Fair, too. Nice pic.

Comment by JoshuaRaineyPhotography:
Signal2Noise obviously cares more about proper exposure, rules, and his personal preferences than he does about the emotion or excitement of a scene. If you would have used a slower shutter speed then the motion probably would have been blurred. If you would have used a slower ISO then you would have had to expose for longer using a slower shutter speed and the motion would have blurred that way too. I think that, if anything, in my opinion the stagehand could have been brought out even more by curving up and then increasing the contrast. About cutting out the rest of the band, or having the shot too centered, thats another thought to be examined. Its sad that one guy just said "to centered". If he wanted to help you get better then he should have said "in my opinion, I think that the use of space on the left side of the frame is a little too much and I find the extra to be a bit distracting to the eye. I would have either composed the photo slightly more to the right to include more of the security worker and less of the empty space on the left or simply cropped the image a bit during post-processing to give a composition that is slightly more on the simple side which then puts more attention on the guitarist, drummer, and security worker. And to everybody else that commented, who cares if the guitarist's face is blocked? This isn't meant to be a portrait!

slower shutter or ISO would give better light with this image and the fact that the subject's face is blocked doesn't help. Also, curve this darker and the stagehand would not be so obvious.

I love the photo dad. I didn't really get a chance to look through any of the challenges so I didn't vote or comment. This is a really great shot though, nice angle and good exposure.

Comment by Blackbox:
Rather then center the main subjects, I think a rule of thirds would make this photo much better.

Comment by blaklite:
I'm sure this was a fun experience, however the picture brings me no emotion and doesn't seem to tell a story. The guitarists face is obscured and the stage cuts out most of the band.

Quite an interesting hat there on the left. Nice silhouette.

Comment by Tammer:
I like the concept. For me, it would have more impact if the person on the left was cropped out completely - just leaving the chairs on either end and the three people. That and little bit lighter sky and I would have scored it higher.
