Charlie Daniels Band performed at Al Asad, Iraq on Apr 16th.
Right before the show started a sand storm moved in. The
drummer wasn't wearing goggles when the show started.
Charlie had trouble holding on to his cowboy hat and it was replaced with a ball cap and the field jacket was added. The band played on till rain started.

The sense of "moment" is present in this image and the obvious character being captured carries some visual impact. Technically, it's a very well composed image which is a plus. From an artistic standpoint, it lacks impact. A worthy entry into the challenge just lacking that something special to make it stand out.

He looks awesome, sweet guitar too! This shot seems slightly dark on my screen.
