First time posting pictures on this site. I've noticed that they don't come out as clear as the originals. Is there a better way of posting? I'm doing it one at a time after resizing the photos. Tell me what you think about them. Keep in mine that they should be clearer.

EXCELLENT photos there ! They looked clear enough to me.
How did you get them to come out that well? A tripod no doubt?
I've taken photos of the shows and had problems with having to use a slow shutter speed which compromises crispness due to constant movement and depth of view due to a lower f-stop. At 1/10 second and f4.5 ( no tripod) some looked nice.... others...not so.
Also they prefer we not take photos, so I needed to be discreet. It's hard to take great photos of a moving show in a dark room and be discreet.
You did it!

Believe it or not, these pictures were all taken without a tripod, hand held. I was up on the balcony of the side taking these pictures. I used a Canon 40D and set the ISO at the highest it would go. I think it was around 2200 ISO setting. I just bought this lens which is a 70-200 EF Canon image stabilizing L lens. The image stabilizing was the trick. I might put more on at a later date for all to see.
I've been a film guy forever until about a year ago when I decided to try digital. Many advantages with digital, but I've shot medium format Bronica film camera for over 28 years doing weddings. I like the quality much better with that film camera over any digital, but labs are phasing out of doing professional film. A lost art. I guess we have to join the club.
