    Plenty of character! I like pic 3 the most too, but they are all great.

    Olá, RAWFA!. Boa captura desse evento. Adoro ouvir os poetas repentistas com a capacidade de improvisar sua canção.

    (Good capture of this event. I love to hear the poets with the ability to duel in defiance improvised singing.)

    Thanks, everybody!
    After Luiz's comments I´ve realized I didn´t go into much detail about the photos. This is actually a very typical thing in the rural areas of Brazil. 2 guitar players start to improvise singing. One says something and the other "replies". It´s a very very nice thing to see.

    Ah, that makes more sense now. The reason I didn't prefer the second photo was because the composition made me feel like the guitarists are separated from each other. I liked the third photo because it made me feel that they were more in unity.

    Now that I know that it is a 'duel' the second photo is more appealing for me now. :) 

    A wonderful culture!
