We went to the zoo today 24th and of cause I had the camera with me but I wasn't thinking about challenge pictures until I saw the HUGE wheel above my head and then the pennt dropped. Kept to basic editing by just sharpening, levels, resized and sharpened again just to be safe and then submitted.. I don't expect to ribbon with this or any of my images I submitted it simply because I thought it was a decent image that fits the challenge and I LOVE taking photos....... Enjoy.

Nice shot. I love the colors of the ferris wheel. It's a shame the sky was so white that day! It would have looked great against a bright blue sky.

This works for me as far as the composition is concerned. I do however, prefer higher color sat. That's just me though.

It's too bad the sky was overcast when you shot this. I bet the colors on the ride buckets would have been even more vivid. I do like your "ground up" view though - cool.

Love the title and the sense of movement. The perspective is perfect for the challenge. I wish the sky were more blue and not so blanched out. The detail and focus is spot on though. Good job. 8

This is a really great shot. I wish the background wasn't that stark white; a nice blue sky with little fluffy clouds would've been so nice (I know you can't control the weather). Otherwise, it's a really nice perspective with great leading curves, nice color, and a really attractive subject. Good job!

I would like this a lot better if it didn't have that flat white background.
