View Full Version : Pic of The Day: Opening Day

This weekend was the home opener for the San Diego Padres against the Colorado Rockies. The game was sold out and I didn't have a ticket, but went down anyways to get some outside the stadium shots like this one. The Padres lost though- 4-3. Without the people in orange, this would have been a lot less interesting.

I know you're the photographer and all and I don't want to sound silly, but aren't they wearing yellow? (Dear Lord, is this the way I find out I am going blind?)

Maybe an orangish yellow?

Really captures the feeling of the throng/crowd....just needs some music like...."Take Me Out to the Ballgame":cheers:

I decided to try two more versions. This first one is still a crop from the original (taken with my wide angle lens):
And here is one cropped even tighter. Any comments? I was not convinced that the first one posted was the best it could be and went back to try a couple more.

I like the widest of the two, but there are people on both the left and right sides who are either looking sideways or backwards totally.
I think the photo would look best if it were as wide as possible, yet still cropping them out. *shrug* Just a thought (I'm so totally NOT a photog).

Will be there in a couple of weeks! Very crowded...

I like the second one (the wide one) best, to me it seems to give a better feeling of a crowded bustling atmosphere.
