Date: Jan 29, 2004
Aperture: F9.0
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/3 sec

I took about 30 shots of this with different shutter speeds and spinning rates until I caught this one. I chose this one because of the interesting design and pattern the spokes created.

I didn't look at the entries on this one so this is the first time I've seen any of them.
Beautiful motion capture and I love that "texture" where there is an overlap of blades... I also love the almost geometric pattern of blades and gaps.
Black and white works well, composition, with the hub forming a diagonal line across the lower part of the frame, is also strong.
Congrats on your ribbon!

I'm going to be suprised if this doesn't win a ribbon. My money is on Blue.

Great shot all the way around. Excellent exposure, crop, and processing. Most of these photographs were bad, but this was the brite spot.
