    Well captured moment. But i dont get it, why the national anthem, played at a sports game, needs soldiers in uniform with weapons. Kind of makes me afraid and conjure up some pictures of Germany 1940 or something like it *brr*

    I like this photo very much, not because I'm a patriotic person (I'm not), nor am I into sports, but because it captures a big scene. I get a real sense of time, place, and tradition. There's a lot happening, with many faces to look at. Good use of the rule of thirds, lighting and color balance. All that blue, too, tells a story.

    Nice composition and of course a great use of the Theme.
I wondered about the overly blue cast to the image, took it into Elements and removed the blue and in my opinion improved the shot immensely. Good luck.

    A fine tradition. Let's hope it continues and outlasts this era of political correctness. BTW, did North Carolina win that game?

    Very nice shot in what looks like difficult lighting for a small sensor camera. The white balance in the crowd looks just a little off to me but might just be my eyes :-)

    Great shot, love the lighting and the 'presence'.
