Congrats Paul, thought this would do well. Didn't realise you were on there at the same time, very game, I'd be sick as well.

simply awesome!! When I saw this I felt a little disappointed -- you can't find these anywhere around us. I think they've all been removed because they're "unsafe". Funny, I managed to grow up with ones at my different schools....

Then I was really glad that they banned them, because I would have gotten physically ill taking the shot!

Good job not barfing on your camera and excellent job on the shot! :)

Fantastic, Sharp where it needs to be and the blur is almost like it is airbrushed!

  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/15/2011 12:28:59 AM
Can't vote, but I love it! It might have been good to get a facial expression more fitted to high speed lol, but this is still excellent!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/14/2011 11:32:11 AM

Classic shot done well
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2011 07:32:08 AM
GREAT shot! Nice to see the subject in perfect focus while the blur contributes to the theme of the challenge.......too many blurry subjects in the other shots in this challenge that leave me with a headache. THIS is perfect! 10 Really really special! (BTW....you are brave to ride and shoot while this is spinning so fast....I get wayyyyy too seasick anymore......ok....10...time to turn the page...I'm getting a little dizzy lolol)

your son has this odd expression of resignation and fatigue on his face, dad we've been doing this for half an hour already, are we done yet? :) The texture in the b/g is great!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2011 12:41:45 AM
one of my favorites, love the cool idea - 10 from me, except that i'm not allowed to vote,sorry
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2011 12:26:37 AM
Very cool. And so simple to freeze your subject against the background using this technique. Now, why didn't I think of it?! :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/12/2011 11:07:40 PM
Great sharpness in the boy, and lovely movement.

I love these shots. I cannot seem to find a park/playground left with one of these carousels. Probably all removed for safety reasons. Pshaw. Nice shot.
