"So feel free to tear me a new one...."
That's not my job here or anywhere. I have adopted the Toastmasters philosophy of evaluation, start out with a couple of positive thoughts, give at most two areas to work on as recommendations for improvement to incorporate next time, finally, end on a high note and conclude by inviting (the photographer in this case) back again to submit more pics.
Nice job! I like how you brought me into the event. And you did it with your camera! Wonderful! When my son was young he went to a few of these as well.
Recommendation for next time, submit more photographs!
I like what you did and I'd like to see more of your art. I like your web site!
Nice to have you here on APUG.
