    I'd have to disagree. I think they are all cropped exactly where they
    should be cropped. Maybe you could be more specific?

    You must keep in mind the circumstances under which these were taken.
    I was on the floor amongst the throng of wild and dancing people in
    almost total darkness with a lens that wasn't meant for such
    situations. I had to do the best with what I had.

    These were taken hand held, no tri or monopod and no flash. D100,
    Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-6 ED AFD, ISO Hi 1, Apeture priority mode about
    80-100 feet from the crowd.


    I believe the results obtained were excellent when taking into
    consideration where they were shot and with the lens I had to use.


    By the way do you have ANY concert images that we could see?

    Yes & no....

    You asked for someone's opinion & when graciously given, you shoot it down
    because you know better than them...

    I believe that the bass player one could definitely use a crop. A general
    rule of photography "if it doesn't "ADD" to the overall image, eliminate

    Your lens with the D100 becomes: 112-480mm f/4.5-6 which makes it quite a
    bit more advantageous than a 70-300mm...

    I understand that you were where you were, but (maybe I should say: "BUT!")
    that's no excuse for poor cropping &/or barely getting shots. I did some
    shots from a seated setting from way back in the seats in an awful corner
    section. I ended up using a 200mm f/2.8 w/ a 2x's TC because it was the only
    way to get in close. (well, somewhat close) When I've posted some of those
    pics, I received some harsh critique, but in all - there's some truth to

    If you're not willing to hear the truth, you will never grow as a
    photographer. I use film still & well, here's a couple shots:

    80-200mm f/2.8

    200mm f/2.8 w 2x's TC (400mm f/5.6)

    200mm f/2.8

    I'm currently in the process if creating my site & am downsizing my
    galleries to be more like the 1st page (above) The format will be totally
    different, but the galleries will be downsized to 1-3 of each performer I
    also have different areas of photography such as portraiture, commercial,
    weddings & such, that will all be incorporated into a much slimmer site with
    elegant formatting...

    Anyway, I don't think that your images are bad, I just think that you could
    listen to someone's objective critique & you'll learn more...

    We all need to hear some things that we might overlook ourselves...

    Take care...
