What a great sense of energy the photographer has captured here. Extra wide lenses can be difficult to work with and can overdo it, but here it seems appropriate to the subject. This is a high-energy singer – contrasted with a seemingly sedate band. The lens seems to put him at the forefront and add to the energy and seems to pull him out from the rest of the group. It grabbed my attention right away.
When I saw the requirements for this category I was hoping to see some strong graphic images and not the run of the mill band shot. This one is a clear standout. The composition of the pipes and the framing of the singer help create a really dynamic image. Well done.
Good job by the photographer to identify an interesting subject and then to capture that subject during a good moment between his music and the people in the background. I get a real sense of enjoyment.
