James - I would have liked to get more height out of the rig, but the wind gusts wouldn't let up all day.  I will remember that next time though.  I will try to move most of the lighting to the upstage truss next time.
only really works if you're using a hazer. In a hazeless situation I'd rather have more front lighting than rear lighting (think theatre) so I can light up what people will see, then have a few lights upstage to fill in the rest.

Where lights get placed depends entirely on what you're trying to light, the kind of performance (if any) and mainly, the budget of the show.

Just so I'm clear  - everyone has touched on getting the downstage truss higher, but what height is preferred for the upstage truss?  Is it best to have them close to the same height?  I set this one up with the downstage truss slightly higher than the upstage truss, but was unsure if that was the norm or not.
First rule of lighting design; there are no rules.
Second rule of lighting design; you can never have too much trim height or too many lights.
Third rule of lighting design; rules 1+2 often do not apply
