    Welp, my wife's boss in a 80's metal tribute band called Iron Mullet. The lady that takes pictures for them is an idiot and uses a d40x with an sb600 on full blast to take concert pictures. Soooo i tried my hand at it...this is what I came up with...
    nikon d200 50mm f/1.8 and 17-55 f/2.8 nikon glass was used.


    i havent done any post processing..

    I like #2 and 4, though over all they all look rather dark, but I imaging shooting a concert would be a lighting nightmare.

    Pretty cool pics. That is a most righteous `80's band name too btw.

    I like the threadstarter's pics better. Your buddy either underexposes, or blasts them with flash to the point that it casts hard shadows or mixes unpleasantly with the ambient (All That Remains set).

    Threadstarter makes better use of ambient and the colors aren't flat, which was the first thing I noticed with your friend's shots.

    main things you need to do are make sure the photos are sharp and in focus, and don't let the ambient stage lights blow out the color channels
