I like the drums, but they get somewhat lost in the orange brick background. Also, the shadows seem a bit harsh. --4-- sohr

Wow -- very cool! Seems just a teeny bit more yellow than I would have liked, but still a very interesting shot.

The composition is good and the color sets the tone of Africa very well.

okay. objects to set the scene instead of a landscape is cool. looking at the picture i might figure where that is, so it works.

I like this a lot. The title is great. The tonal range is perfect. The composition is thought out. Great job. 8, just-married

Very interesting subject, and would like to be able to see more of the drum in the lower left corner with that rope texture going on. I like the color cast, it suits the photo overall. The black "hole" in the composition bothers me, my eyes keep getting "pulled" to that area, and although I realize that that may have been unavoidable, it mars the photo for me. lhall -7

Nice collection of drums...very attractive. I think your lighting let you down a bit here, but this is still nice. Score 6 Justine

A little bit too yellowish. This would have had a stronger impact if it were B/W.

Nice photo, but I wish there were some more non-yellow tones in it too.
