Good Morning Everyone,
Whilst in Glasgow, we visited The Emirates Arena, an amazing stadium, which accommodated six badminton courts, gyms, etc. and was attached to the Chris Hoy Velodrome. It is an immense modern building and a wonderful place to watch the exciting badminton matches!
There is a lot of glass in the modern stadium's design, good news for a photographer!
Here, you can see Celtic's famous football ground 'Celtic Park' and the many colourful banners advertising the 'Commonwealth Games' reversed in the windows of The Emirates Stadium. As a w/s, here I will show another view of the windows, giving more of an idea of the building's shape.
Thanks for your interest, Bev :-)

Two nice photographs from your visit to the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and an interesting note describing the magnificent Emirates Arena and the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, neither of which, I must confess, I have yet actually seen.
Your workshop image puts your main one in perspective (so to speak) and your main picture is a delightful one, showing the well known Celtic Park stadium nicely reflected in the glass of the new structure.
Lovely light, fine vibrant colours and a new and interesting "take" on this place too.

Two stadiums for the price of one, a very good idea! Well exposed with very good colours and clarity.

So, can we assume this is a "self-portrait," is that you I see in the reflection?? :)
You're absolutely correct, something of this nature is good news for a shutter bug, there are so many possible creations to come from architecture and element like this...and you sure found a good one!
I really enjoy the graphic and fluid combination of materials and view you've put together with this arrangement. Wisely observed and creatively composed to give us that 2-in-1 effect. And thanks for including the WS to give a solid context to the building in play. Well done! Enjoy the new day. All the best.

To be honest, sport is not my cup of tea but the stadium looks impressive, especially after I read your note. Creative use of the glass as a mirror, the whole building is visible within the frame(even you:) )The blue sky is an evidence of a lovely day, perfect for taking photographs.
Hve a nice day/

De beaux reflets capturer dans les vitres avec un aperçu de vous :-), bonne lumière et couleurs, belle version en WS

A creative view of the stadium shown here and a useful WS too. You managed the light well with the reflection showing lovely but interestingly distorted detail. Very well framed and presented.
Kind Regards, Ann

I like these double pictures. The reflections give often a new and unexpected few of the original and you can see in the same time something of the surrounding.

Good evening Beverly,
Fine reflection of the Celtic stadium, a whole structure managed on the picture.
Good clarity while maintaining natural colors.

like your pic very much. Good idea to fotography in a window.

one of these days I'll get to visit this fine country!
I envy you, or anyone living where you do because Scotland and Ireland are so close by.
One of the negatives in living in the 2nd largest countries in the world i guess.
the black horizontal and vertical lines are vital, without them it just doesn't work as well.
fun shot, thanks for TE i'm always searching for these types of scenes. well captured.

Isn't it wonderful the way glass plays with reflections, patterns and colours. Focus is right and hat off to inspiration and creativity which gives a whole different outlook clearly it appeals and really gives dominance to the eyes. Full marks, Congrats
