Farris whell at the downtown aquarium in Houston, Texas. Long exposure and zoom. I tried several different zoom ranges. The longer zoom ranges were dramatic, but I liked the pinwheel effect of this one.

Nicely done. Striking use of colour, supported by understated use of fish-eyed "cityscape" in the background.

I am left vaguely wondering just what is happening in this shot, though...

Nice, cool subject. Background is a bit busy perhaps with the orange lights.

Very pretty use of the motion to create a pinwheel and I like the diagonal angle. My one nitpick is to have made "Diving Bell" clearer. Still, a 9!

Interesting looking ferris wheel. Good strong dynamic composition. Well done!

Lovely colours, only wish that the words were not there. Words bring one down to earth when the actual image tends to uplift one.

For me the zoom doesnt work, I think the motion of the wheel was all you really needed.

Definately one of my favorites for one of the ribbons or at least first page material..... It also has the special "WOW" factor, as well. A "10" from me.....

This is awesome. I had this idea too, but couldn't find a carnival anywhere. I like the colors in this one, and I like it that you have very little distracting "stuff" in the background. Nice job.
