ISO 100, F22, 30 seconds, manual settings. The Hurricane, a fair ride at the Jamestown Fair in Jamestown, PA. We took a 10 day vacation driving all over the USA, visiting friends and really enjoyed the fair the first night we arrived in Jamestown.

This is just mind-blowing, Linda B-)

Superb results you have got here and the exposure is fantastic.
I like the effect you have got through long exposure.
Amazing sharpness and well caught contrasts in this nocturnal shot.
Well done!

Kind regards,

Hi Linda.

Stunning results from this exposure length, it looks like a lighthouse. Its a good idea for many to try. tfs

stv ;o))

Excellent Linda! Very sharp yet with a perfect motion blur from the long exposure! Rich colour, good exposure and the wide angle fits everything into the frame well.

Good one!

The colours and the contrast between the still portions and the moving portions are much appreciated

Awesome work Linda! Your use of long exposure to capture both light and motion blur is superb. This one gets the Blue Ribbon!!!


Wow! I love the psychedelic pattern created by the lights and long exposure! Great composition and good lighting. Wonderful colors. Very well done, tfs.

A striking image and a good example to other site users in long exposure technique. The starlights from the small aperture are a nice touch as well. The patterns and colors have a hypnotic effect and the only distracting element is something you could not control - the fence.

Very artistic result. Well worth the effort.
