Very nice and interesting content, certainly conveys the spirit and mood!

However I find most of the shots too soft or out of focus. Some of them have no clear focus at all which indicates a shaken shot. Try shooting at a faster speed than 1/30 sec even if you have to up the iso. Your cam can perform very well up to and beyond iso 800 with no problem at all. Also some practice on bracing the camera properly for a steady shot will pay dividends. I assume you had VR on...

Many thanks for the inputs Sunshine_boy ! Will try to crank up the ISO (I know I'm perpetually worried about noise) and get faster shutter speeds. For sure, VR was on for these hand held shots.
