Given that two of those images have people sitting in front of the camera person, those views are more than likely a realistic view. Plus, handrails are known for causing restricted views, which is the problem facing the new stadium in Winnipeg.
Is't that just the concrete for the standing terrace? The rest of the seats are black and yellow.
A number of seats are also grey:

UEFA matches require the stadium to be an all-seater, right?
all international football games(club or countries) are played on all seaters.
3-0 Borussia,this team looks very good.:applause:
Thanks. Attendance against Shakhtar was given as over 80,000 on some sites here in the UK, though. :picard:
The regulations that currently prevent dedicated standing areas in Premier League stadiums is nothing more than hypocritical bullshit. If standing was unsafe, then standing areas at all sports venues in the UK should be banned, but we know that's not going to happen because thousands of people happily stand at matches each week without any issue.

Germany has certainly showed us how modern standing systems like the rail seats can work, and are even safer than what we have now in the UK, which is people standing in seated areas. Hopefully one day common sense will prevail, so all stadiums in the UK will have a mixture of seated and standing areas like Dortmund's stadium does.

Looking at Gaz T's recent images of the stadium, the concourse areas could do with some updating:

Can anyone who has been there regularly say what improvements BVB have made over the years.
Replaced the seats in the suites to these:

Added photovoltaics to the roof

Rebuilt the dugout area

Built a new TV studio

Opened a Turkish Airlines hospitality lounge:

Additional toilet facilities installed

New Daktronics screens

Built a new club shop

New entrance for the corporates

Upgraded the CCTV and public address system

Added Wi-Fi

There was also a fair amount done in order to get it ready for the 2006 World Cup (new bucket seats, media facilities and changing rooms were upgraded, too).

Dortmund to shut stand following hooligan attacks

Borussia Dortmund will close their iconic south stand for this weekend's home Bundesliga match, having on Monday accepted the German FA's sanctions after hooligans attacked visiting fans a week ago.

The south stand, known as the 'Gelbe Wand' (Yellow Wall), holds 25,000 supporters at Borussia's 80,000-capacity Signal Iduna Park stadium and will be closed for Saturday's home league match against Wolfsburg.

Dortmund had until noon (1100 GMT) on Monday to accept the punishment handed out by the German Football Association (DFB) last Friday to close the stand and fine the club 100,000 euros ($106,379).

"After weighing up the arguments, Borussia Dortmund has decided to accept the DFB's penalty and the drastic punishment of closing the entire south stand for the Wolfsburg match," said Borussia in a statement.

"We are also currently preparing measures and sanctions against the perpetrators as a consequence of the incidents and will present the results in the coming weeks."

The heavy sanction has been handed out after hooligans threw stones and bottles at visiting RB Leipzig fans, including families with children, before a Bundesliga match on February 4.

Police made 28 arrests, four officers were injured and 10 Leipzig supporters were hospitalised for treatment due to the violence before kick-off.

During the game, some 60 banners bearing anti-RB Leipzig slogans, many of which were offensive, were held up by Dortmund fans in the south stand.

Dortmund bosses have apologised to their RB Leipzig counterparts.

No-Show: Borussia Dortmund threatened with season ticket withdrawal

Because some season ticket holders of Borussia Dortmund use their season tickets only in the top games, the club has decided to threaten those who use their ticket in less than ten games of the season 2018/19, with the termination.

"Unfortunately, we increasingly found that in the past Bundesliga home games many season tickets were left unused, while many fans could not purchase single tickets due to high demand. BVB has introduced the no-show rate with the aim of noticeably reducing the number of unused season tickets per match. This should be ensured in terms of high ticket demand that the privilege of a season ticket is not exploited at the expense of other fans, "said BVB CEO Carsten Cramer the introduction of the so-called no-show rate. A similar concept is also practiced for example at FC Bayern Munich, VfL Wolfsburg or Hamburger SV, so that the season tickets are used in as many home games.

They clearly don't want extra hospitality facilities. There's something very beautiful in that, which is why so many cherish this stadium due to its focus on general supporters, and long may it continue.
