    Well I was at the fair (which was after the balloon and air show) and was looking out at the Ferris Wheel....Hmm understanding exposure and the creative exposure came to mind, so I busted out a little slow shutter action. I didn't have a wide angle since I was shooting the airshow, but I had my 70-200 f2.8. I wish I could have gotten closer for some better angles.

    3. I don't care for this one too much just because I wanted the entire carousel exposed, but the top didn't light up or anything.

    Ah no. No need to get any closer! They convey the funfair atmosphere so well! Lovely! So for how long did you expose in 1, for example?

    I wanted the wide angle so I could replicate the shot in the book. The exposure was a bit longer I think 15 or 30 seconds with a aperture of 9 or so I believe. It was slow moving at the time.so I wanted to get the full circle lighted.
