Just curious if you tried this in horizontal... did it give you the same curve effect? This is just a question, and not a thought re:vote.

Well composed and good colours, though a little red. Would like to see a little movement represented - pan with foreground horse to keep him in focus and background moving? Tthough I've never been able to pan well myself and perhaps you thought of that and just didn't want that image? So I'm just talking about my preferences in what I'd like to see.

Nice shot! Was the merry-go-round moving? I can't tell. A sense of motion would be nice. The head and body appear very clear, but the feet seem like they are not. 9 Swash

One of my top ten. The perspective is just really cool, and it fits the challenge well. The bottom of the shot seems a bit blurry somehow though. Nice job.

I think this is a Carousel (horses only), not a Merrygoround (numberous animal-types).

This photo scored high with me due to the great angle and beautiful framing. The lighting is good, the "roof" is a bit dark, but most likely unavoidable. Beautiful horses and great detail on the carousel. Good job and good luck in the challenge.

Everything is there but the composition could (maybe not, I wasn't there) be improved: it's a bit too symetrical to my liking.

Good light and colors. Definitely makes me think of my childhood. I find the dark upper part to be distracting, and think I would have left out the whole upper part, and concentrated more on the horse. Overall, I think the photo really conveys the mood, and I can almost hear the music. lhall

The colors are a little too dark for me and maybe a little cropped off the top. But the idea and the rest is good. 6.
