The joys of youth. I don't get on the rides any more, but this brings back some fond memories.

I added a faux HDR look to this by doing some tone mapping and a large radius unsharp mask.

I think the image on the banners, may have scared off potential riders Werner:-)

One gets the feel for a fairground with all the rides & excitement of same.not sure if the PP work,took away some of the sharpness,re the writing on the banners,but not that,that matters,as one definately gets the feel of a fair.

I like this; lots to look at here and the vertical format is pleasing to the eye. All looks sharp.

This ride doesn't look too frightening, even for us non-youths :-0

Very impressed at the results of your creativity.
Clinical lines and clarity of colour at there to be enoyed.


Oops, Werner, for this feast of color and happiness in a world so needed this, this Ferris wheel gains a symbolic character.
Good choice the faux HDR.

Hi Werner,
I like this POV to capture this wheel.
Beautiful colors and an interesting sky as BG.
Nice tight crop to obtain this composition.
Well done,

Hi Werner,
Clever perpsective to emphasize the height of the ride, and yes where has the time gone. HDR processes working well giving good detail and depth.

Hello Werner
Pretty cool...I like the treatment given to the photo..
Nice texture and colors..

Hi Werner...I think your HDR worked well here...interesting and not over done.
