See? The shadowed area to the left of the musician has more depth and detail so it is not a "dead zone" as it is in the b/w version. But, what I like about the b/w version is how the musician's dark eye pupils stand out and grab the viewer's attention. Not so much the case in this color version. Each has its strengths and weaknesses. The only difference being the consequences of done in b/w or color. Seems a bold attempt when shooting with a flash. May have been better to setup you lighting differently. Nevertheless, a fine lesson. Thank you for posting both.

Thanks for the comment.
Lighting is difficult in these circumstances..packed with people dancing and jostling for position....not much room to operate, so shots fired off and grabbed rapdly, these guys move around a lot, so trying different flash arangements doesnt get much attention...the lighting can be different from one shot to the next its finding a happy medium...its too quick to mess about hahaha!

The photos were very good. But, under those circumstances they are quite outstanding. Thank you for your reply to my comments.
