Greetings from the critique club.

I feel like I am at the fair. This picture does a good job of giving one a sense of placement. You have captured a piece of something we have all built up memories of. Looking at the light trails there, I can only imagine how scary this ride is.

Composition:
The shape of your light trails does a good job of leading the eye across the frame. The sheer texture of these trails along with the multiple directions they lead you is amazing. I think that the bridge on the bottom of the frame then pulls your eyes completely out of the pic, into some kind of tunnel. The people in the frame just help pull your eye to that bridge, and out of what is really interesting about this picture. Why not a tighter crop to cut out those elements on the bottom and make it a little more abstract?

Lighting:
Great lighting. I wonder if there was a very bright light just to the left of frame. The whole pic looks a little washed out with a lens flare, especially across the middle of the frame. A lens hood could have helped with that.

Post-processing:
This shot looks just a little dirty to me. You might want to run something like neat image on this one. Iím not usually a fan, but it could help clean it up.

The streaks here are amazing, and almost enough to overcome the stuff on the bottom.

Very cool lioghting. I like how the blue balances out with the bright yellow. Nice exposure and very good idea to include people there, rather than just the ride. It provides a more interesting subject matter. Good job.

This is really fun. I like this ride. Tell those guys to duck next time! Just kidding, though you might consider cropping them out; they do steal some of your attention here. Really groovy image. 8
