Personally, I like the 1st and 3rd photos; the strength of the blacks on the 1st shot is just great, whereas the 3rd, I like the blue and how it it touched the subjects.
Wonderful shots, mate!
It would be very convenient for us fellow Cazillions if you included what camera, lens, and settings you used and what program you used for post processing.
All photos were shot with my Nikon D90 and edited with lightroom 4.
About the lenses and setting;
1. Sigma 70-200 f2.8 at 70mm, f2.8, 1/100sec., Iso 1250
2. Sigma 17.0-70.0 mm f/2.8-4.0, at 17mm, f2.8,1/100sec. Iso 1000
3. Sigma 17.0-70.0 mm f/2.8-4.0, at 28mm, f3,2,1/100sec. Iso 1250
4. Sigma 70-200 f2.8 at 200mm, f2.8, 1/125sec., Iso 1000
5. Sigma 70-200 f2.8 at 70mm, f2.8, 1/100sec., Iso 1250
Overall, nice clean shots. I'm assuming that you decided to silhouette rather than fully expose those based on ISO limitations? I know the D90 is one heck of a workhorse, but things get sketchy over 1600 or so. I'm regularly between 3200 and 6400 on an average when I'm doing concerts. I try to keep my shutter speed up over 250th or so. Just shot one last Saturday night, and I was no less than 3200. It's even harder to stop motion when they're jumping all around the stage. No way I'd shoot a D90 at 3200 and not expect sandpaper. Again, don't get me wrong, I love the D90. There's a reason they still make them, but super-high ISOs isn't why.
