The Hablützel Ferris Wheel is Europe's largest mobile unit, or so they claim. It's 60m high, weighs 450 (metric) tons and carries 40 cars that can each hold up to 10 passengers. Photographed while it was still standing in Zurich, Switzerland - will have been taken down by the time anyone gets a chance to read this.

Technical 3/3 - very well executed, great contrast, colour, feeling of speed conveyed by the blur
Artistic 2/3 - feel like I've seen it before, but I appreciate the thoughtful composition
Meets the competition - you bet, 3/3
Emotional - 0/1 - just a personal thing, ye old fairground-at-night shot just don't turn my crank, not your fault :)

8/10 - certainly among the cream of the crop

Good use of shutter speed to make an ordinary photo stand out. NICE!

Been done before, might have benifitted from better composition

Nice use of motion blur, and the off center composition is very dynamic.

Would have been better with stars in the background, but the spinning gold center on the black background is impressive

I expected more ferris wheel shots in this challenge. Nice composition and exposure. 6

Original, good long exposure shot. Looks like it's moving at lightspeed....

Very good motion blur capture. I like the simple composition and the black background. I'm left kind of wanting to see the circle completed, however. This may have been impossible to achieve while retaining the simple background, or the cropping may just be what you wanted to see when you made the shot. It's just my opinion. It's a striking shot.

Though I don't think it's necessary to get the entire ferris wheel in the frame - Iwould have liked to see a tad more - or the shot moved over just a wee bit.

stunning

i question the composition but the concept and the exposure are great!

This would be much better if the background were darker instead of filled with sensor noise. Maybe I'm being too picky. I do like the motion blur and how sharp and crisp the lines are. Despite the noise, it's a very good photo and the off-center composition adds to the photo. 6
