I really like this one Andy. The crowded scene works for me - after all it's war, they are all struggling togeather. The processing works for me as well, makes it look a bit surreal which is reasonable given it's the civil war. NIce shot,

Processing is perfect for this scene.

Looks a bit overprocessed, maybe too much Shadow/Highlight or similar. It is also a bit too crowded in the center, difficult to focus on any person individually, and most faces are partly hidden. You captured a good moment, but a different point of view (more from the front?) I think would have helped.

I realise that there is little you could do about it, but it is a shame the modern warehouse is visable in the background.

Great work on this good capture. I like the fact nobody is looking at the camera or anywhere near it. Well done.

Great shot. I like that you can see most of everyones face in it. Processing works well with this shot to oIMO.

the processing would be great if there were fewer musicians... but now it just emphasizes the clutter of your subjects... a face behind a face behind a drumstick, etc. The grass looks *fantastic* though (fangrasstic?). Very close to being a great shot.
