Well, I'm finally taking the plunge with my first photo. Picture taken at the Central Children's Park in Minsk, Belarus (between Russia and Poland). I took about 100 photos of this ferris wheel from different angles, but finally chose the straight on shot. Luckily it was a clear and sunny day (unusual for here), sun was low and coming in from the side, so colors aren't as bright as they should be, although I like the way the sky came out.

it's very busy which I am sure you couldn't avoid. Regardless, I like the shot.

Very nice picture. I really like the angle from which you took the shot - it really adds to the feeling of the photo.

I'm not sure how you would be a cleaner shot of this, but the trees intrude into the image too much.

That is huge. We need as many Ferris Wheels (and water wheels) as can be stuffed into a competition just because they're fun! This one is done well. Thank you.

Striaght forward shot with nice colors. Compoition lacks impact due to the dead centered approach.

Nice composition, good framing around the tree clutter.
