I saw an open challenge by a 2 dan and I didn't want to pass up on an opportunity to play a stronger player.
I got pretty much steamrolled over though. So I was wondering what the big mistakes were. I especially want to hear about whole board thinking. Feedback on my reading won't be as valuable since I played it relatively fast, I was mainly focused on whole board thinking.

Thx for any pointers!
I was white.

:w20: stands out to me a bit: it has little effect on the corner, so it is a bit slow and doesn't really help those stones yet. If you don't want to connect against the peep (which is understandable), maybe jump to the centre.

:w28: should either go to D5 or C7 in order not to crawl. Even if you later got out there, the two black stones are kikashi and can be discarded.

I think with :w40: you should play the hane at J2. Can you see that? I think that's also still the move at :w46:.

:w50: could play H4, which induces Black to atari the white stone but then Black must immediately capture the three stones. You then have another atari in the centre or on the side (later) and can fix the shape of your lower side, maybe with L5.
