Not bad, given your pre-shoot jitters. In the future, when you know you're going to be shooting something at a fixed distance at night, lock your focus when you have enough light. Several of these are just plain OOF.

Hmmm...Photobucket seems to be having issues again. Cannot see any of the photos linked.

Yeah, where are the pictures? I like imageshack or flickr better than photobucket.

So what technique did you end up using for metering (Eval, center weighted, Partial/Spot) and for exposure setting (green box, P, Tv, Av, M)?

And what intent did you have in making the shot...portraying primarily the fire, portraying primarily the crowd around the fire, or both?

Without understanding your intent for shots, it is inherently hard to critique your achievement of that goal. Only photo 8 is just plain underexposed...the critique of the others has to be in the context of your purpose in a particular shot.

Shots 2,3,4 seemed to accomplish reasonably well the capture of the crowd illuminated with flames (but #3 is a bit underexposed for that). So I am a bit puzzled with the comment "the fire still didn't illuminate the crowed".

Well, it is fundamentally difficult to balance the wide dynamic range needs of properly exposing the fire for less blurred look, while also capturing the crowd illuminated by the fire.
