Yeah, I know about the redeye. Not much I can do about it that's DPChallenge-legal. Also, I think it actually adds to the shot. The tight crop is due to the location of the lead singer and lead guitarist on either side... in this venue it's very difficult to get a clean shot of a drummer as the stage is in the corner and the drummer is obvuously at the back.

Yikes. I don't wanna meet this guy in a back alley. Aptly titled. Nice composition. The orange of the drums against the purple background is nice too. 7, just-married

I don't see this as a candid image. To me, when a person is doing something where he/she knows that spectators are watching, the idea of "candid" goes away. 4 sjgleah

Title/pic well matched! Good stopped motion (almost stopped both drumsticks)!
The red-eye is a good touch here. 8 Swash

Good picture, but unpleasant to look at.

The title is a clever way to explain the red eye -- cute! That's quite the facial expression -- well done!

Complete with red eyes! Good exposure for what I'm sure was a very dark location.

this is fabulous. you managed to catch him with virtually no motion blur--very nice! good band shots are difficult--but you got it! interestingly--his facial expression goes perfectly with his demon eye--making it almost seem intentional--like part of his "stage costume". nice work! 9--amitchell
