I'm not seeing the images.

Friend's server seems to be down or something. Hopefully he fixes it soon. Can't do much about it. :(

Links now working. Was this a high stage .... images look as though you were standing at their feet which isn't an appealing perspective. 1, 2 & 4 kind of look up their noses. #3 you cut off the guitar head. In 5 there is a lot of flare ... did you have a UV filter on? I know this is all rather critical and appreciate that most of it is well beyond your control. It would also be nice to have an image of the entire stage rather than just the same framing of single musicians each time.

The musicians just were at so front, that I din't have much choice than to photograph from where I was. I tried to compensite the guitar's head being cutted off by later cropping some of the mircophone stand out too. No, I don't use UV filters.

Here's my only succesfull stage photo.

It just was too dark to get any usefull shots from distance. :(

Wow, that last shot reveals the level of difficulty! Maybe you should try InfraRed. :-) With all the superb photographers that shoot at Lutakko I am surprised that they don't have better lighting. It's also hard when the musicians seem so placid and blah. Thanks for the stage shot.

Looks like circumstances weren't too good.
You did capture some nice expressions though.
