    It's not often I spend a day in London and actually remember to get my camera out. So achieving both these things on the same day was impressive enough. Actually coming back with several pictures that I was really happy with was even better!

    Love the spinning carousel. I have one like that but it was taken at night so it is mainly a blur of light. I like that you can see some details of the carousel.

    Nice work! I like the way you left all the people in the first picture - you get some really good perspective by having all these tiny people running around such an imposing builidng.

    ditto aoide's comments on the latter pictures.

    I love the last 2.. The spinning is awesome, and the color on the 2nd one is really great. IT almost looks colorized.

    Good pictures. Ditto on the Carousel. Having never been to London, is the fairground open all year?

    Thanks Everyone!

    Cruzin: That's a very good question which I'm afraid I don't know the answer to! A lot of people seem to know about the fairground, so I'm guessing it's there either all the year or for a large amount of it.

    Great shots!!!

    I especially like #3, would you mind posting the aperture/speed you used.

    Excellent stuff,

    Bryan.

    Sure! For that particular photograph:
    Shutter Speed: 1/8 second
    F Number: F/8.0
    Focal Length: 6 mm
    ISO Speed: 200

    I also upped the contrast, cropped and rotated a little in Photoshop.

    Thanks for the info!

    I wouldn't have guessed 1/8, i'd have thought over a second :S

    Once again, amazing photograph!

    Three very different, very nice shots.

    I like the 2nd the most.
