These youngsters were very willing to talk, inspite of thier perspiring state, largely due to their performance.

A fine serie on this drum players, didn't know that they had to heat up these drums before performing.
Good use of flash, nothing too hars or overexposed, a clear informative shot with warm colors.

I play the drums myself, so most pleasant to see this informative shot that includes your interaction, trespassing a distant shot that wouldn't take us so deep in to the scene.
i like the warm colours

I like this shot very much for the way you have captured the happiness on their face. The guy looking at the camera seems to be really excited. The picture has come out well taking into account the fact that it was taken at night.

nice shot I have seen that in the tamil nadu
the heating their "thappatai" is it to make it tighter ?

Humm... waiting for their next round... yes they are completely ready, their pose is seems to be like that. I think they warm up their drums & themselves for that. A nice capture; well done Prem.

Hello Premanand. A beautiful and very alive photo. The scene at night and the fire make the picture very tendencyful. The composition is outstanding. The picture pleases me very well. Many greetings, Wolfgang.
