I had more night panning shots this year that were keepers, so I'm getting better there. I was experimenting with slower shutter speeds during the day this year, also using AI servo as well as stopping down to smaller apertures and was disappointed in the amount of missed focus shots during daylight hours. Oh well.
I found the lighting this year wasn't the best with it being overcast most of the time. The colors didn't really pop for me this year.
Still a lot of fun!
