I know this is not the 'normal' definition of sports, but from my personal experience I can tell you guys that touring for 3 weeks is one hell of a workout... So from my standpoint playing in a band can be seen a sports..

Unfortunately, only one of the comments actually had to do with the technicals of the photo. This will always be the problem with the site in that it focuses too much on parameters. Based on your details I can see why only 1 comment was useful. For me, compositionally the guitar strap connector is kind of annoying. I like the gritty nature of the photo, it feels road weary, but I think it might have been more interesting if you tried to incorporate more of the environment to help solidify the tour concept or the returning home concept. And sports being pastimes and a band being a team isn't really that much of a stretch for someone with an ounce of creativity to make, so it is even more ridiculous that people would feel the need to focus on what this photo isn't about. Unfortunately that is the governing mindset here. How'd the tour go?


I agree with you. The fact that I only found 1 comment to be useful indeed has to do with the technical aspect of it. Comments don't need to be all positive to be ranked useful by me, but I can't do anything with a comment about why this is not sports. I thought maybe people could see beyond the typical idea of sports, but I guess not :). No problem, I've probably weren't supposed to think people would see the picture the same as I do. Anyway, I do appreciate your thoughts about the picture and the ways this could have been improved. Always good help for following challenges.

The tour was truly awesome! Thnx for asking. It is definitely something I could do all the time. Who knows, maybe some day :).

I love the depth of field and lighting of this image, though the guitar could be tip a bit toward the lens.

I don't correlate playing in a band as being a team sport. Hmmmmm

Rock n Roll is not a sport!
