So another Salute is gone by and I took a lot of photos like every year. The show was like the years before very well organized and despite the mass of people there wasn't a very long delay to get in. The games were very well presented and the selection of traders was outstanding. But there is one point I have to criticize , the lighting . When you got into the Salute venue it was very dark. So dark that it was sometimes difficult to take decent pictures ( as you sadly will se below). There could be more light and in the venue next door ( a wedding convention ) it was very different , much more light !

I took about 250 pictures which you can see here: link

A few teasers:

I think my favorite was
"Zombie attack on Salute 18 ( an outstanding idea for a game)"

Thanks for posting your fabulous pictures. It looks as if it was even more gloomy than I remember in the past (I didn't go this year.)

It's sad when the zombie attack hall at 28mm is better lit than the actual venue. If real zombies attacked you couldn't pick them out in the gloom in some of those shots.

Brilliant effort. Thank you.

Lovely report, the pictures are amazingly good and must have taken a lot of time and effort, well done!

Thanks again . Indeed this time it was quite difficult to take decent pictures with the lighting of the venue so low. Hope they can change something next year .

Lovely pics of our Leros board, especially considering the lighting!
