Great concert shot! Lighting is fab, nice comp, good work, 10.
12/07/2008 11:08:49 PM
amazing shot. and it's actually of a band that I've seen. If you're not already working for the place, I'd try to sell this shot. 9
12/07/2008 07:34:33 PM
Great shot. Fitting image for a great band.
12/07/2008 06:30:18 PM
They are awesome, aren't they? :) I love the light spots and the people. I can feel the energy coming out of the photograph. Nice.
12/06/2008 10:20:52 PM
B/W leaves this rather anti-climactic - the colored stage lighting (for me) is what makes concert photography so vibrant and intense. Compositionally excellent however.
12/06/2008 08:52:35 PM
Nice shot!
12/06/2008 05:59:35 PM
Great use of light! You should send this photo to their management!
12/06/2008 01:41:31 AM
The symmetrical comp works really well. A terrific concert photo. 9.
12/05/2008 09:12:35 PM
One of my favorite shots in this challenge. Might not be the style of other voters, but I hope they see the quality in this anyway. 9 from me, and one of my top 5.
12/05/2008 08:13:09 PM
love the shot, hate the band! ;-) Reznor is a hack. 7
12/05/2008 04:54:48 PM
This looks like it was a difficult shot to get - it's very impressive.
12/05/2008 03:35:26 PM
Great concert picture. The lighting was perfect and I like the way you included the cheering spectators. 8
12/05/2008 02:29:54 PM
Spectacular concert shot - - takes me back, its been almost 15 years since I saw Trent live - - good luck! -- 8 --
12/05/2008 11:41:59 AM
My favorite of the challenge. Mastery of light, debth and mood. Thanks for submitting.
12/05/2008 07:28:25 AM
outstanding concert image - the energy is entirely obvious
12/05/2008 12:24:25 AM
Wow, love the lighting, very dramatic, sets the mood of a concert.
12/05/2008 12:06:02 AM
Excellent concert capture.
12/04/2008 03:30:37 AM
I can feel the atmosphere in the image! I love this photo and the NIN!
12/03/2008 07:36:55 PM
Nice high contrast B&W. Cool lines and I love all the "little people".
12/03/2008 02:21:33 PM
Nice shot.
12/03/2008 09:43:55 AM
Excellent. 9
12/02/2008 11:44:39 PM
would have loved to be there a decade ago. Good crowd response, seems quite quiet on stage
12/02/2008 05:53:11 PM
neat composition. the black and white works perfectly.
12/02/2008 04:26:30 PM
Spectacular crowd shot. Great POV and group.
12/02/2008 03:30:10 PM
Love this - great use of light, symmetry. Wonderful in B&W.
12/02/2008 08:48:03 AM
They rock...and so does this.
12/02/2008 07:35:46 AM
excellent work.
12/02/2008 06:25:05 AM
love this
12/02/2008 05:34:56 AM
Whoa!!! I love this shot!!! you can feel the energy!!! NIN are not necessarily my fave but I can, without question, relate to the energy taking place in this scene!!!! very cool!
12/01/2008 10:02:37 PM
The writhing crowd makes the picture. I like it. Probably looks better on a large canvas as the drummer, for example, gets lost back there in tiny pixels. 8
12/01/2008 09:11:40 PM
I don't know how you did it. I've been to concerts, and I've tried many times to get something even close, with miserable results. Extraordinary concert shot, and with the lighting and perspective, I think the B&W was a perfect choice. PERFECT composition 9
12/01/2008 07:45:23 PM
Love the lines the lights create.
12/01/2008 01:12:21 PM
Nicely done!
12/01/2008 12:58:59 PM
that is a sweet shot. they will probably throw that up on there site or something. if you offer atleast.

12/01/2008 09:23:21 AM
Incredible black and white!!! Great shot, i love the lighting
12/01/2008 05:51:25 AM
im very impressed. excellent band photo, the lights are perfect. very good
12/01/2008 02:44:31 AM
My flatmate loves this band, plays them so loud!

Anyway, I love the symmetry of the lighting on the crowd, you did well to capture them at this moment, good stuff!
