  • Post your London 2012 Olympics shots here!

    Are you going (have you been?) to a 2012 Olympics event? I'm sure we'd all like to see your shots. If you anre't already registered, you do need to register on the forum to post here but it only takes a minute or two.

    Sadly, I will have to wait for the Paralympics although one of my daughters is going to the Beach Volleyball and Handball events with her school in the next couple of days and I hope to post some of her shots here.

    So for the time being here are some shots I took at the white water canoe and kayak GB trials for Olympic places a few months ago:







    And there is more here in my gallery on our Olympus UK E-System User Group site.

    And here is a link to the original thread posted at the time here.

          Elizabeth is back later this afternoon after watching handball yesterday and beach volleyball today with her school. Hopefully she will have some good shots - apparently she recorded some video yesterday and caught a red-card incident in the handball match she was spectating at.

              As promised some shots taken by my daughter, Elizabeth (16), earlier today from the Beach Volleyball at Horseguards Parade (edited and processed by me in Lightroom 4.1 ):



              Lizzie on the left and friend Vicky on the right. Quite amazing that this is 5 minutes walk from Trafalgar square!





              You can see here that the sun wasn't always shining and while it was dry today - it was quite chilly!



              I guess the youngsters in the beach garb are there to add a beach feel to the proceedings before each match. Here a men's match is about to start.













              I will try to find out what this was all about - some celebrity in the crowd, maybe?



              And last of all:



              I haven't sorted through the rest of the Beach Volleyball shots yet so there might be more to come and the other shots are from the Handball events.

              More later!

              Feel free to add you shots here too!

                The white water canoe and kayak pictures are something else Ian.

                They are brilliant,Makes me want to go and find some fast moving water and try and get some shots.

                  Ian, I think your girl did at least as good as that pro with the Panasonic! These are great pictures and she should be proud.

                    Here are some more from Elizabeth, this time from the Olympic park and the Handball event at the Copperbox:



















                    I think the last one is a stunner with the night time view of the floodlit stadium

                    Come on guys - let's see some of your shots here!

                        Here's a video clip that Elizabeth recorded while watching the Denmark vs. Hungary Handball match.

                        Watch out half way where there is a red card incident. Was it fair? It looks to me that the player simply stumbled all by himself...

                          Ian, I've just been looking at Elizabeth's pictures again. Is she aiming to be a professional tog? She's certainly got the talent!

                            They are fantastic. Elizabeth really did do well and definitely has an eye for photography as John says.

                            I think I should make sure that I had my own signature on the pics though, instead of my dad's.

                              Ian - you must be so proud of her, really excellent shots there. The goalie's position and expression in the handball is absolutely priceless! She's definitely got "the eye" - I really liked the wild flowers in front of the stadium too.
