We took the kids down to the local sports grounds on sat night to see the Carols by Candle Light and fireworks (separate thread for those).
While there, the organisers asked me to take a few shots for their promotion as none of their people could get anything decent.
It was difficult indeed, so dark.

I quite like shot 1 here - next time you should have brought some of those crazy bird torches (flashlights)

Nice job with what was obviously difficult lighting.

Thanks guys :)

Yeh Marko ... however, I didn't know they were going to ask me to do this for them until I was there. I had one camera, one lens, one tripod, no flash etc

I dig that first one. I like the lighting on the people standing in front of the stage.

Looks like you managed to compensate for your shortcomings and get some good shots.

Very nice in those less than ideal conditions MA. Really like the lighting in #1, and the perspective in the last is very nicely executed.
