About the Image(s)

At the county fair this summer, I decided to try to capture some of the rides at night using a slow shutter speed. I really like the way many of them turned out. I was shooting on shutter priority. This Ferris wheel was shot at a 15th of a second. I love how the lights are sharp, but you can still sense the motion.

I really like the motion and colors, very effective for this subject. Possibly add a very slim border so it separates from the black layout of the site. Maybe next time shoot during blue hour so the background doesn't go totally black.   Posted: 09/18/2023 11:09:22

I LOVE shooting fair lights at night. There are just so many fun images. I've even tried in camera motion which give a whole different photo.
This is quite nice. I like how the eye is drawn from the bottom left to the center of the wheel and then "fireworks".
Nice. I like the black sky. Having shot similar fair lights, shots during blue hour add too much distraction.   Posted: 09/18/2023 12:33:37

Excellent colours and motion, I would prefer it with a little light in the sky rather than it just being black. I suggest that a narrow key line would improve the image by creating an edge to it.   Posted: 09/20/2023 09:41:59
