I think you did really well. Positioning ~60 people can be no easy task, and the image quality looks good. Congrats.

Other than the guy asleep in the middle, and the guy on the right that looks like he's relieving himself, pretty good.

Looks good. Eye sockets are not dark. No obvious green cast from light reflected off grass. Was this just natural lighting? Cloudy day?

That's a lot of folks to get in place at one time.

I think I'm seeing some heavy jpg compression artifacts or some kind of halos. Maybe over-sharpening as mentioned earlier?

The crop is a bit tight on the sides. But, yea it is really hard corralling such a large crowd for a photo.. looks like they werent too interested in having a group photo taken.
