This composite image was created by shooting 425 individual photos over the course of an hour as the athletes entered the stadium. The final high-resolution image is composed of more than 3 billion pixels and measures over 94 ft. (29 m) wide and nearly 44 ft. (13 m) long. That’s about the same size as a basketball court.
