First Annual Blues Fest in Victoria Park London Ontario

I decided to have our local Photo club meet for a night photo walk in London this weekend.  One of the members emailed just to let us know that there is a Blues Festival going on and it might be pretty busy.  We decided to keep it as scheduled and am I glad I did.  The main headliner was going on stage just as we arrived.  There was no charge to watch and we were at a good distance to get some decent shots of the band on stage.  Now if only the rain would have stayed away a little longer.  We had a window of about an hour before it started to rain fairly heavily. I started the night with my 70-200mm f2.8 lens and was able to get decent shots.  I noticed though that if I wanted to crop any of them, it was getting pretty pixelated.  I switched about a half hour into the shoot and mounted my 70-200mm onto my 2x teleconverter to get a little more reach.  This turned out to be a very good decision.  I ended up with much better clarity when cropping in closer.  Below are a few of the shots I came home with.
