Here is one from the rehearsal for the open ceremony last Monday, 8 separate images stitched together in PS.
It was a great atmosphere and event too

Thanks for looking and worth a large view if you have the time

In all seriousness -- this is a great image, good job of stitching together multiple shots.
Sue and I loved the opening ceremonies and we are glued to the TV and internet following the games.
It brings back memories of when the games were here in Los Angeles (1984).
