Which Castellers coll?

One for 5de8, perhaps, or another Barcelona resident.

I've been fortunate enough to win a photo competition at work (the theme was teamwork) and have to attend a ceremony tonight.

The winning photo was 017O as per this link ...

avengerpenguins.com/gallery2/main.php…

although I also submitted 017N which is my preferred image. I won't argue with the judges, though.

I remember that there were 4 groups in Pca de St Jaume on that occassion last year (I think Sants, Sagrada Familia, Barcelona and one other). I know these are not the Castellers de Barcelona, but can anybody tell me who they are?

Thanks Belsaita and slatkin

Now a confession - colour is not necessarily the first thing I think about when behind the camera, as I am quite colour-blind. It's not a problem with the blues and reds, at least in those shades and amounts, but if I'm challenged to choose between that green and that grey, then I'm struggling.

017S is Sagrada Familia - I can see the badge. It looks like the same colours as 017N to me. Am I right?

I did consider 017W as an option. O was really as a context setter for N, but it seems that the judges have based their decision on the broader context than the intimate detail. It woud be churlish of me to complain. Both N and W, to me, have much more going on, balance, movement, tension and dynamism, whereas O is an ok photo of a tower. I suppose the relative unfamiliarlity of the subject for the judges was on my side.
