UK - Oxon - Blenheim Palace - Olympic Torch Relay - The Torch

    Newer Older

    This was a shot I'd pre-visualised before yesterdays Olympic Torch Relay event at Blenheim Palace, I'd wanted to get a recognisably Blenheim background to the shot. It's actually a crop from the full frame but given the slightly chaotic situation I was lucky to get it at all.

      Going by the chaos locally here you were lucky to get anything youd pre-visualised
      I just picked a spot on the pavement and was grateful I had my zoom lens with me lol
      and of course it rained on us non stop

      This is an excellent pre-visualised shot. I have seen a few Olympic flame picture and this is the best of them. I like the detail of the torch, I like the movement captured in the flame. I love the distortion of the background thanks to the heat of the flame. Overall a well conceived idea.

      Thanks everyone. I must admit I'd seen someone else's photo with the heat distortion and knew I need a reasonably out of focus background without too much detail. The key was getting there early enough and and standing my ground against the of late arrivals who all seemed to think no-one would mind if they turned up at the last minute and stood in front of you......
