no....please raise your OTHER left hand

But... they're all holding up only one hand! So maybe it should be "Put your hand in the air." But I guess that doesn't have quite the same ring to it.

The emotion and energy of the event itself must have been thrilling to experience while there. However, that energy and vibe doesn't resonate so well with those who did not share in the same live experience. I can recognize it as a fun and fabulous time judging by the smattering of smiles but I find the photo very hard to look at because there is just too much going on. The scene is very busy with a sea of people, a riot of color, and hands in the air - there is no focal point. Hmmm, or is there....after looking I do see something that with the right processing and focus could make this composition more stronger in the street photography sense. First off, the woman in the right corner with the purple shirt is facing in the opposite direction of the crowd. I would play her up as the focal point in the sea of people. Second the riot of color is too overwhelming to the eye - my suggestion is to make this a B&W. Maybe just select that woman and have her in color while the crowd is B&W OR have it all B&W but select all the crowd & darken the crowd slightly so that she stands out more. Also you could do a selection around the woman and do USM to bring back some sharpness of detail in her face.
