Hey, I've been busy these days and I haven't got the chance to surf in TrekLens! I took this photo some days ago when I was in an amusing park in my neighborhood. This is a roller coaster that is built recently and at top of it you are at 32 meters above the ground. This is the exact place that these people were sitting and I found the faces so natural.

Ciao Mak!

Funny people.
Funny poses.
Fine take.
Nice effect.



Well collected all people feelings and presentation. Good idea.


A good shot showing the different responses of people to exciting rides. The gentleman on the far left doesn't seem at all perturbed :-)

Itīs an interesting take, since the high (1/250s)speed froze, and thus allowed us to appreciate, the facial expressions of the people.

Nevertheless, I miss a sense of motion that a slightly slower shutter speed might have brought to the whole scene. Itīs a little weird to see the people freaking out but for "no apparent reason"...Of course, we all know what a roller coaster is, and we can infer.

Still, in my humble opinion, this is a typical case where too much sharpness can be a nuisance!

All of that said, I loved it!

Hi Mohamad,
The different facial expressions of joy and fear have been well captured, priceless timing.
