Sports Authority Field at Mile High

Another Sunday calls for another football shot!  This is the home of the Denver Broncos taken from row 6 in one of the end zones... obviously. ;-)  I took this just after the team was introduced to the crowd.  It was an awesome atmosphere! 

I must say that the camera rules for the Broncos' stadium is pretty good.  They don't really care what you bring in as long as is doesn't interfere with other fans' enjoyment of the game.  I actually emailed them about what I wanted to bring which was my Nikon D300s, my all-purpose 18-200mm and my 10.5mm fisheye lenses and they wrote back and said (I'm paraphrasing), "No worries".  I think if you even had the equivalent of an 18-300 for DX (APS-C sensors) cameras anyway, they wouldn't have any issues with that and you could get great shots from anywhere in the stadium.  Just don't bring a tripod or monopod.  Again if you aren't sure, just contact them.  They are good about getting back to you.  Also,  you can't use the shots for any commercial purposes.  You know, you need the "expressed written consent.." and all of that other stuff...

The shot below is a one shot HDR that was processed using Nik's HDR Efex 2. It really brought out the detail in everything.  Even the flames shooting up from above the scoreboard at the other end of the stadium came out pretty well!
