  #202 Red Passion
Entry 3 of 25
   
 
The Arena       ©2018 SteveBee
Panasonic DC-G9       3rd place, 152 points
1/30s, f6.3, ISO 200, 14mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Developed from raw in LR with global adjustments of highlights-, shadows+, vibrance+.       Extra Info: Photographed in late afternoon. An interesting detail I noticed while processing the image is the initials carved into the nearest seat on the right. This local arena is listed in the National Registry of Historic Places. Constructed in 1952, it features the first cable-supported roof in the world. It was the predecessor of more famous domed stadiums such as the Houston Astrodome in 1965 and the Louisiana Superdome in 1975.

    Thanks A.N.Other. The building is on the state fair grounds and has been used for everything imaginable -- concerts, circus, ice hockey, roller derby, exhibitions, and more.

    Great shot and my No.1 . I meant to ask during the voting phase, what would an arena like this be used for? I've never seen anything like it before.

    I liked this image a great deal. I too had a "red chairs" image to submit; however, I went with the cooktop range and the guitar instead. I will post the chairs in the outtakes. Tell me what you think.

    Love the worn out red seating.

    I had something like this in mind, but the theatre venues were unavailable due to rehearsals. The initials add a human touch and the curved roof compliments the seating.

    Great find and well taken.

    The angle of the shot really draws the eye inward across the backs of all those red seats. Thanks for the historical info. This would have been quite the engineering accomplishment in its time.

    Nice finding for the theme, and well executed too, lovely lighting. If you did some kind of HDR to rescue the detail through the glass, it paid of, great job!!

    Beautiful reds in a venue that would host a lot of passion. I like the rhythm of this. Well up in my tt.

    Lots of interesting patterns here (and red of course).

    Great idea. I suspected that there would have been more of this type of image. I wonder whether other perspectives might have been equally effective such as shooting the rows going left to right, for instance. Well done in any case.

    Great picture, and the scratched initials really add to the picture - gives a sense of the individual human presence.

Really nice lighting which helps with the patterns.

And pictures of stadium seating always remind me of one of my favourite pictures: the second of the six photos -

    Striking shot with well-composed patterns, great colors. IMO, some action on the arena floor - maybe someone in a red shirt pushing a broom - would take this image from very good to great.
