Did they use differnt stuff on torches this year?

No, there was nothing unusual with the fuel this year. All the torches were steeped for much longer to see if it would help them last, but I think it was clear the extra time didn't make any noticeable difference.

 

Half my photos are rubbish...

Only half being rubbish would actually be quite an impressive achievement in any case. Getting good fire photos is very hit-and-miss, so best results are achieved by playing the numbers game of taking as many as possible to catch one or two good ones.

:lol: well yes that's right, I'd be very happy if half of them turned out fine! I also work on the principle that if I take enough some will be fine! :lol:
