    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    So this was the rehearsal up north for the big parade down south tomorrow (Part II). I was not happy with my pictures at all. Most were over exposed and I had a horrible backdrop of cars, (busy) trees, and buildings. My pictures were also pretty dull. I had to PP and crop a lot of them. It was just a bad day overall.

    Here's a few of the outcomes. Please C&C so that I can be more prepared for tomorrow.
    Criticism, pointers, recommendations, etc... all are welcome!!!

    I was also having a really hard time getting my new 50-200 zoom lens to focus on the subjects face. It was aggravating to say the least. (lots of blurry pics)

    I should get my chinese new years stuff up...

    #1 the middle (which is the center of focus on that shot) looks like it's a painting really weird it starts at the guy with the blue jacket. Other than that the dragon takes up the most space and you can't see the head at all...so it practically blocks the good shot.

    Focus on the audience or the dragon because it's not focused on either.
