Good stuff! #3 is my favorite.

I'm shooting the Celebration in black and white this year -- my thread is here -- I'm going to add a link to your thread in mine so people can see what it really looks like in colour.

Looks like you and I sat in very close proximity, because my photos look quite similar.

China was by far the BEST I've ever seen. They pretty much started out with a better "finale" than Canada and the USA!

I really like your images. Number two is probably my favourite out of the ones you posted here.
