[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Singapore Flyer is the largest Ferris wheel in the world and is 30m taller than the London Eye.

It used to rotate counter-clockwise which was later changed on the advice of several Feng-Shui masters.

The interesting part for me is the way the capsules rotate as the wheel goes round - a clever piece of engineering

Hi Jack
What a fine detail of this Singapore Flyer, the largest Ferris wheel in the world.
Good light management in this rather difficult situation.
You obtained beautiful highlight on the shiny white steel structure.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Fine detail of this marvellous piece of engineering. Very well shared.

Hello Jack, excellent PoV with sharp details of some of the capsules.
I like that we cannot see the ground, only sky.
A complicated piece of engineering.
Regards Jean.

We Had one of these in Plymouth, but I couldn't get a decent point of view. But you have managed a good point of view, a good sharp image and nice exposure. Nice one.

Hello Jack,

Cool angle on this shot. Good and very interesting. Peeked my interest from the thumbnail, and was thrilled when I pulled up the regular sized photo.
Very nice.
