Olympics I

The banks of wild flowers are an inspired idea. I got a ticket for the athletics on Friday evening early on Wednesday morning, a last minute decision on my part, I decided I had to experience the event. Shot with a fully manual Samyang 8mm fisheye lens.

A very effective composition John: there has been great praise for these banks of flowers
How pretty! The lens certainly gives a nice feel to this subject.
This colourful field of wildflowers just about outshines the building, John. The fisheye lens was the perfect choice for this shot.
A beautiful field of wild flowers John. I really like the fish eye for this subject!
I'm sure you had a good time, I enjoyed what I saw & that was just on TV smile
Great picture John. You were lucky to get a ticket
This all comes together very nicely with this lens John, lovely foreground.
A picture perfect angle. I like that field of flowers gives the welcome to the majestic stadium. Greetings.
