C & C are welcome, specially on photo 2.

First picture is awesome - great contrast and saturation. I like the second, but the reduced contrast due to flare (?) kind of bothers me.

Thanks Cody for your comments, I agree with you on the second photo, I kinda like it but I can't seem to find the angle to reduce that flare. If you can see, the light is direct facing me. If I change my angle, I couldnt get that angle of the artist.

Squareroot, I like the first picture the best, although I think it would benefit from a slightly tighter crop (removing the drum and possibly lighting rig from the right of the picture)
The second's angle I can see was a bit of a problem. It's very difficult to call. Maybe if you had moved slightly to your left, so that the light that is currently just above the neck of the guitar (which seems to be causing the bigest problem) is then partly (or completely) obscured by the performers head. I don't know, as I said, it's a difficlt call.
But well done anyway - keep them coming!

the first picture looks excellent. I have taken many concert shots so I understand how croping and framing can be difficult (moving around the crowd then the band changes position... uhh). However, I agree with the last comment that you should take great care in ensuring that only the necessary elements get into the photo. In this case the small piece of drum set you've included doesn't help the picture in it's overall look. However, I would be interested in seeing the shot with the whole drum set in. I also really like the colors, smokey look, and lighting!
Overall Great shot!

I, too, agree that generally, you should crop out (or even clone, groan) sections of distracting elements ... when part of an instrument of piece of equipment sticks in from the side it really draws the eye away looking for the rest of it. As for the second, in addition to the flare problem it doesn't seem to be in focus, so much as you may like the effect others may not see it in a charitable light (pun intended.)

Thanks for the comments guys! Here's the cropped version of the first photo.

What's the best way to fast focus this type of subject? May I know what usually is your set up? that is if you don't mind. =)

How about this one?

Yup, yup, yup ... much better! Now you've got to put them on a website, bigger, and link back to them from here so we can see larger versions. :-)
