[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is "The High Roller", the tallest Ferris Wheel in the world. It stands 550 feet high, took one year to build and cost 550 million dollars. It has 28 cars or "pods" each holding up to 40 people. The wheel moves at 1 foot per second continuously so people walk on and off while it is moving. Each car is 12.5 foot wide with 8 feet ceilings. There is no real lighting inside the car.

This shot was done in two stitched sections.

Hi Roger,
An impressive photo, your framing conveys the sense of hugeness.
I like those intersecting lines a lot.

Hi Roger! great capture, good effects through the wheel. Best regards Csabi
