what a view! very nice panorama. my only quibble would be the sharpness is a little overdone for my taste. however, others seem to like it so i guess it's a matter of individual preferences. hope to visit this area someday.
thanks for sharing

amazing place. would love to visit someday.
if i had been shooting this i would have included more water and less sky. also i would have shot at a higher f-stop (f/22) with a faster film speed and perhaps a slower shutter speed. this might have added more detail to the boats and islands. i think i might have cropped some of the right-hand side or maybe just gone for tighter shot overall to highlight the boats more. you can also post higher resolution images which will improve detail. (this image is less than 100k)
i've posted a workshopped version of your photo here:
you may disagree and then again, you might not :)

good photo, lothar. i like the lighting and pov. i might have done a little cropping.
This is actually "la stade Olympic" built for the 1976 Olympic games and only just recently paid for after numerous cost overruns and a monstrously expensive (and never functioning) retractable roof.
still, it's a very impressive building if thoroughly impractical. there are discussions currently underway about its future. one option is to tear it down.
