Nice composition and colors.. Could benefit from some more USM in post processing.

Very nice but IMHO you should have gotten more to the side so the mike wasn't in his face.8

the mic is obstructing his left eye. but a nice colorful crisp photo.

Pity the microphone is so prominent, but there probably wasn't much you could do about that. Overall very good, nice expression, good DOF and composition (apart from the mic). Colours are a bit muted.

needs sharper focus. Nice take on the assignment, the only one like it in 200+ photographs

Great shot. Wish the mic wasn't there though. Looks out of place with him in full head dress.

Would have been better without the mike in the way

Very colorful. I feel like his mouth are could be sharpened up just a hair.

Even with all of the color here, I still only see the mic first. Without that, it would be a great picture IMO.

I like the amount of colour this picture has, although I think it might have been important to have the mic in the picture... I think it takes away from the over all picture.

It appears the mike is what is in focus here.

Looks like the focus is on the microphone instead of the "musician" in the title.

focus seems more on mic than face, otherwise very nice

(did they really have microphones back then)

I really don't like that the microphone is obstructing part of the performer's eye. Just a couple of steps to your right, and you could have got rid of the microphone altogether. Focus should ALWAYS be on the eyes, not the microphone as here.
