Nice event and pictures, thanks.

The people don't look too happy though, is that because they see a

Btw I thought some pictures lacked a bit in sharpness but on studying the
details I presume you use shutter priority with auto iso?

I really try to hold m43 camera's on their default iso, but ymmv.
