Default Outdoor composition question

Last night I attended an outdoor performance by the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra.

I took a few photos. Including the one I'm posting here. The opening in the trees made a natural frame for the shot. I have patrons in the foreground, and the subject was intended to be the ISO conductor himself.

Is this a photo that was a nice idea, but from a composition standpoint, it's not going to work?

Thanks for your C&C

Faithfully Yours,

Hi FP,

This sort of framing can work but usually when you are using wider angles and a wider depth of field so that everything is in focus. Unfortunately as it is the 'frame' just distracts from the scene.

It's a good idea to try but this time it didn't work out.

I wouldn't be too hard on yourself.

I think it's a nice shot. I like it.

It was frankly a great beginning-

We all learn and make changes based on our experiences and photos. Next time, I am sure will be better.
