Decent pics, well-chosen lens given your seat, but Nickelback? Cripes, dude. Was there no other way for you to show off the camera's low ability? That's a lot to sacrifice for some pics on a forum.

Why my effing iPad changed the last post topic from 'Huh' or something like that to 'Gay' I have no idea. Time to find a way to turn that nonsense off.

I think at the least you would be better off using a longer lens. With the 20mm and 45mm the shots just look like fan shots from the stands. To get images that will truly stand out, you need to employ some social hacking skills. Several years ago I was planning on going to a Leonard Cohen concert and wanted to take some pics, so I got in touch with a major media outlet and asked if they would be interested in using me as a "stringer" for some concert pics. They agreed, so I called the promoter and said I was a photographer taking shots for a media outlet and I was going to be there for the concert anyway, so...

Very intriguing photos, they made me go back for 2nd and 3rd looks. The last one showing the hanging hardware especially caught my interest. Very nice! Thanks for posting these.

Good for you. The first shot is just exceptional. Those shots of the lights are really good. Yeah you probably should have had a longer lens and a tripod yada, yada but let's focus on the good stuff here.

Right on.

Your first shot is exceptional: very dynamic and mesmerizing.
And every next is tad less, and less, and less...
And congratulations with new camera

I’m surprised how much Wikipedia contributes to the forum.

I'll agree that the quality of what the camera produces is fantastic, but the pictures themselves didn't really fire me up. I was offering some advice on how the OP may get more compelling concert images in the future.

Vastly better than pics of dog, house and wife. Good to get out. But I see lasers, not Nickelback. Need either closer seats or longer lens. But still a good exercise for the camera.

Unless they're a warm up act I'd say from the size of the audience a lot of people what to see them. I've never heard of them, but I'm somewhat isolated.
