The velodrome, affectionately known as Calatravaki, the greek diminutive for Calatrava (Santiago Calatrava, the brilliant architect who designed it). It stands close to the much more massive and similar looking Calartava - designed roof of the Olympic Stadium.

And hi again, Eleni.
Santiago Calatrava! In Valencia he make a very similar building to this one (all the complex is called the "city of the arts and the sciences").
But the important now is the photo. I remember the place and is really nice. Well, even I have one photo in the Olympic Complex and I remember this place as a great place (very nice at the evening).
You has captured his good architecture and a good light and colours. And is nice.

This is an elegant photo of this modern architecture, Eleni. The panoramic format is a good choice and enhances the focus on this unique stadium construction - from a distance it looks like a big butterfly that has landed on the outskirts of Athens :) I like how the stairs in front offer some lines that point towards the main subject. The colors and sharpness are good; I think you could try to increase the contrast a bit to accentuate the details. Nice add for your Olympics series.
