the guy on the right scares me, but apart from that it's a great shot; well done.

Great, like this a lot...should've been higher. All of their faces are hit with light - I know that's not easy.

Very nicely done.
Has all the markings of a professional shot I could see on the front of a music magazine or similar.

Extremely nice work! Was this supposed to be "song title"? Band-wise it kicks ass ... portrait, not sure if?? Still fabulous 8.

I'd seriously expect to see this in the liner notes of a CD!
01/15/2007 07:39:21 PM
great shot. Good focus and composition but what makes it great for me is the atmosphere and mood that has been captured= 9
01/15/2007 01:21:31 PM
Good execution, a bit "same" composition in a non-comformist sameness kind of style; 8.

One of my favorites in the challenge. The best group portrait here. Wonderful lighting and placemen to the individuals. Highly rated.

Sweet image!! Excellent pose and lighting! Nicely done!
01/14/2007 04:55:50 AM
good lighting
01/13/2007 11:14:33 PM
VERY cool angle and light! I like it a LOT! Album cover stuff! Just a TAD more crop top and bottom? I give it a 9, anyways.

Now that's how to do low key and moody. 10.

Back to comment: The band will love this shoot. Great tonal range and lighting. 10

Nice drama...I like this composition very much.
01/12/2007 11:49:49 AM
Nice greys. The background looks pasted, though. There is some banding in the sky - due to the compression?
01/12/2007 07:48:32 AM
Amazing shot, great contrast!
01/11/2007 03:39:15 PM
this is great
01/11/2007 08:26:00 AM
Great band shot. Very cooool!!
01/11/2007 06:21:48 AM
great light and detail - 7
01/11/2007 01:22:20 AM
Nice take on the challenge. This is a nice shot. Like something I'd see on a record cover.
01/10/2007 04:45:05 PM
If you cropped this tighter to show just the 5 faces, I will hand you a 10.
But given the fact that the voters can only see 640 pixels and the cracked floor already took more than a quarter of it, I can not hardly see the emotion on the guys' faces. Instead, I am giving a 7 for your B&W processing.
01/10/2007 03:09:49 PM
Good shot!
01/10/2007 03:00:28 PM
Probably a little hard to apreciate with such a small res.
But great lighting control. Not a bad pose, if a little predicatable.
Love the tones and the dodge+burns though, normally i'd say you were a little heavy handed but i think it suits a band shot like this.
Nice shot.

yeah!love this one. Like the processing, lighting and setting 10
01/10/2007 06:04:00 AM

01/10/2007 05:06:45 AM
excellent photograph ... it'd make a great record cover ... love everything about it ..
01/10/2007 03:28:34 AM
Gritty, stark, love the lighting and the composition.

An all 'round terrific offering! 9
