This is a shot of Fenway park, shot during an Indians/Red Sox game in May '07. Taken with my Sigma wide angle from the Monster Seats (the best place to watch baseball ever!)

Editing was simple. Levels, curves, crop, resize, some dodging to lighten the shadowed crowd, usm, save for web.

It won't win, but I love it, and I thought that I would share it with everyone.

This isn't Tiger Stadium :D ... great shot, wish I could see the Green Monster, but I realize you're standing on it! One of my 'holy grail' baseball moments will be Fenway ...

This isn't Yankee Stadium. You must have submitted the wrong photo.

The over exposed lights keep drawing my attention away from the rest of the picture.

Very cool perspective and good use of wide angle. The large negative spaces of the outfield and sky contrast well with the busy infield and crowd.

One issue I have with the image is that it gives everything away. I'm not left wondering or piecing together aspects of what "could have been there". Much like comparing reading a book to watching a movie, there's little left to the imagination. It's still a good image from a technical aspect.

Woah...you've got to be kidding me....Thats not The K Stadium!!!

Seriously, fantastic night shot. I love images of sports stadium, especially at night and this is a wonderful example.

Great colour and sharpness, plus bonus points for getting so much of the ground in whilst still having an image which has context and reason to it
