Very nice stage shot with compact cam..
the lighting is perfect..
prefer to put more space in front of the singer..
nice pic!

Hello Anna,
I like the moment you captured here. Coeur de Pirate seems to be entirely absorbed by what she is singing. Nice intensity.
Said this, like Arfa, I have my doubts about your composition. Leaving more space behind the singer is a good idea in order to underline the darkness and to oppose this darkness to the light surrounding Coeur de Pirate, but you definitely left too much space in my opinion. I think I would have opted for a square format here, cropping even a little on the right and much on the left.
Moreover, could it be you had to retouch this photo given the poor light conditions? To me, the skin of the singer looks to smooth (did you soften it in order to remove noise?). The white tones look blown-out as well. If all this is the result of postprocessing, I would have been less drastic. I prefer a little bit of noise (grain) to a too smooth photo that looses detail.
Of course, this only is my personal opinion. Feel free to (dis)agree ;o).
TFS & kind regards,
