I went to the local outdoor mall knowing this Ferris Wheel would be my subject. I got about 25 pitures before the mall security came and asked me to leave. I didn't think an outdoor mall would have the same rule; oh well.

Not much post processing actually. The usual highlight adjustments, levels, color balance, hue/saturation, a little burn/dodge, sharpening.

Love the interesting angle of the shot. Cool sky too. Only complaint is that I can see some detail in the inner part of the ferris wheel...but overall i cant complain. :)

One thing about DPC recently is that there sure have been a lot of photos with ferris wheels in them!

To consider this a silhouette is kind of a stretch.

More contrast would have blackened the ferris wheel more, therefore fitting the challenge better. Still a nice shot though.

Great angle, and I love the sky. Good job.

You've filled the frame well. The sky and the main subject are both very appealling. Maybe if you'd have waited just a touch, you could have avoided the pure white behind the centre of the wheel. Otherwise, good stuff. 8

Looks so much like the Irvine Spectrum; wondering if it really could be.
