Default Drum and wind section

Every Sunday afternoon about 2 dozen musicians gather at the foot of the pier here in Huntington Beach. Most have variations of bongo drums and the rhythm can be heard up and down the beach. This was taken yesterday. Canon 5D Mk II & Canon EF 100-400L. Just before sundown.

Several children were among the onlookers and some of the players took time to encourage their interest. "Can you hear the rhythm?", he seems to be asking.

Second pick. I love it.
May be better not to tell your stories behind the picks and let the viewer guess.

The affect you applied to #2 really makes the picture.

Number #2 is a real winner. I also really like number #4, the look on the kids face is great.
