Looks like you were at one of the (rounded) corners of the field. Because of the exaggerated depth effect from such a wideangle shot, the field itself recedes into the background and the eye is drawn instead into objects closer to the camera, such as the woman spectator at the lower left of the image. If that is your purpose, you have done a good job.

However, if you wanted to draw the viewer's attention to what is happening on the field, the image is much less successful. You probably weren't allowed to tarry long, if at all, in the area near the plastic barrier around the field, but if you had been able to shoot from there, that barrier and the metal fencing would be largely out of sight and would no longer serve as psychological barriers to the action on the field.

Actually, I was using my cell phone, just trying to get a feeling of space in the arena. I wanted it grounded with a person, and hopefull, the leading lines in the ceiling and around the floor would draw the eye from there.


Management had the lower level limited to one of their videographers.
