I feel I must apologize for this year's Fest pictures. The stage layout, which put even the first row at least 20-30 feet
from the stage, coupled with bad lighting and the tendency to have the stage lights DOWN when the actors were speaking meant
that the shots tend to be far away, too dark or both. What are posted are the ones that through the magic of PaintShop Pro,
I could clean up or crop to what to me are marginally acceptable levels. Believe me, I thought long and hard about even posting
these as they are so far off my normal level of picture taking.
Usually the stuff I shoot with avaliable light with a film camera works out better than the digital shots, but this year
this wasn't the case.
