World Sports Day

25 June 2012

World Sports Day was one of the events staged around Britain in the run-up to the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

I was interested to see how the figures in Festival Square and the windows in the Sheraton Hotel changed from photo to photo when I tried some of the Photoshop filters to photo 1 below.  The effect can probably best be seen by clicking on the medium size or large links.

15 photos:   small (640 pixels)    medium size (1024 pixels)    large (1536 pixels)
