A very interesting exercise! This photographer shot the Olympians with a modern digital SLR - and with a 100 year old wooden field camera on B&W sheet film. The results are very interesting, as are his comments on the process.

My favourites, in no particlular order, were biker, archer, table tennis, divers, rowers, basketballers. I just felt the results were very pleasing for these images.
