backstage at a Friends of the Bob and Tom show comedy concert. From left, Chick McGee, Henry Phillips, Drew Hastings, and Greg Warren. Great show, crazy guys.

Your crop and PS work seems to have done the trick by transforming this into more of a High Energy Photo. Nice Job. :D

The Captain and crew finally got their stuff together, now if we can only remember where we left it. :cool:

but michael, dont you think that capturing just that slight bit of movement blur on the guy second from the left's hand gives the impression of movment that only helps adds to the energy of the shot? ...why is it so important to capture everyone frozen totally sharp?

does anyone else have an opinion on this? ZC

That is an awesome backstage picture! are you friends with the performers or were you working?

I agree that the motion of the hand should stay, it gives the shot some energy. I would like to see it cropped just above the table in the foreground and only on the four men on the left. Maybe converted to B&W.

I had won the tickets on the radio and they had a meet-and-greet set up for the contest winners. I kind of snuck my camera in and luckily they were cool with it. They were messing with me and this was their reaction to my saying, "bring it ****!" I have it in black and white at http://www.beachphotog​raphy.net/bobandtom (external link)
