[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was an weird, scary ride at the Jamestown Fair. It was a huge "swing" and it went back and forth, higher and higher, until it went up and OVER backwards. I have ridden rides like this... horrifying!! ISO 400, F16, 30 second exposure.

This is a superb long-exposure result with amazing focus and clarity, Linda B-)
Love the details and perfect show of colors.
Light and contrasts are very well handled which make this work a good composition for a "Happy Halloween"!

Kind regards,

Hi Linda,
A very colorful presentation of this sphere rotating in such a high speed leaving such a beautiful effect! A scary ride indeed but not so scary admiring this piece of artistic work. An agreeable POV.
Well done.

Hi Linda.

Great effect and good notes that associate this to All Hallows, colours and movement are so good, so striking.....I'm scared just looking at them these days. tfs

stv ;o))

The ghosts will not scare but this ride will! Awesome timed exposure, love the colors created by the spinning wheel. Well done, tfs.

I like this Linda ... love the bright colors against the black night sky, and of course the long exposure. Love the sparkle of the green light to the right too.
I wondered how this would look without the little fish peeking in the side, so I did a little workshop .. hope you don't mind.

No question your at a fairground on viewing this image Linda,your long exposure sure adds to the thrill of this ride,sharp details.

I like photos that are a little out of the ordinary, and this is one. And I like it. Exceptional exposure control, excellent vibrant colours. Did you use a filter (I'm a beginner)?

I like the fact that you include camera settings.

Hello Linda
Great colors of this spinning wheels..great light from the
long exposure and great contrast..Good POV.
