Absolutely f'n stunning!! That is excellent! I think that states it.

Wow!! Absolutely love the colors and the composition.

How long was the exposure? Aperture? Any post processing?

I'm floored. Truly a great shot.

love it. Great stark reds, then blue. I like how the wheel is composed as a quarter of it, with the center right at the corner.

Great photo...excellent composition! What settings did you use for this one?

Hi Bryan!

I haven´t words for this picture. It´s just brilliant! I love the colours and the light´s reflect in water... You have a lot of reason to be happy with this... Good work. One of my favourite...

Very nice image, good exposure, composition and management of motion. The colours really lent themselves to this image. Good work.

No, no, no.

An embarassingly poor image. Ghastly colours, poor composition and uninteresting lighting make this one of the worst shots I've ever seen on this site or any other. Better luck next time.

Just trying to buck the trend here - I do of course mean quite the opposite! ;)

I think it's excellent as well :)

I really like this shot too, there is just the right amount of motion blur on the wheel, and the sharp focus on the rest is great.

Struggling for something constructive to say here... while I do like this composition, It may also have looked good portrait style, with a wider angle lense, to give the same width, but extra picture onj top and underneath, just a li9ttle more underneath, and enough on top to show the top of the rollercoaster towers, and the top of the wheel.

If it were mine, I'd be showing it off too. How's that?

Amazing shot! Truly stunning, and interesting to view!

That's an awesome shot! It would have been a winner in Night on the Town. Usually I hate to see the horizon in the exact middle of the picture, but it doesn't bother me as much in this picture because of the reflection in the water. Nice job!

This is excellent - a lovely night photo. I like how the oranges and blues work together from the wheel and the 'coaster. Do you have any that captured the rollercoaster running - or is it not lit up ?

Never worry about asking for critiques on a shot like that. Even if you come on as simply say "Hey, I took a damn good shot and I'm showing it off!" Just show it off all you want, especially with this audience! That's a great pic!!!
07/22/2003 11:17:09 AM · #17
One more liking it here. Beautiful image! It's the kind of picture that you'd want to go back to and look again. Good work!

07/22/2003 11:24:31 AM · #18
Fave from me, great work.
07/22/2003 11:37:13 AM · #19
Looks like another ribbon will be coming your way soon, with shots like that!

Nice image. I find the reflections in the water are way too harsh and bright. I think it really detracts from the wheel and coaster. My eye ends up in the water which, IMO, is not really where it should be.
I really like the gamut of blueish hues that you have caught here and the complementary color the wheel offers them. I like the composition. Maybe a bit less water and more wheel, but that is a small observation. Really nice capture... Dave

awesome brian--colors are fantastic. i dig the contrast of the curves of the rides with the surrealness of the reflection.

It does seem pretty harsh/ sharp in the water- I just assumed that was the camera used.
