    I happen to be going to a fair the first weekend in October. There's a crash-up derby held as well. I should have some pics then.

    Also just a quick question, what type of metering would one suggest for the night shots?

    I just used the usual average metering mode when I took those photos I posted in here, don't know if the other metering modes would have made any difference.

    hmm how is the weather there in October? I thought most outdoor fairs with rides and stuff are usually held in summer unless you live in a very nice and warm place like mr Icassell here :D


    this was actually the first time I been to a fair and it was great. I especially love the food and those dog shows :D I kinda wish that there is an amusement park in this city :(


    the humane society was there too with their incredibly adorable kittens :D

    Those are cool, Hobbes. My favorite part of fairs is the animal exhibits (4-H, etc) and some of the crafts (this one had wool spinning) ...

    I get sick on rides :greenpbl:

    haha! You are like some of the people I know that's why I had to go there all by myself and never had the chance to get on any of those rides :( I just love those animal exhibits lol and it also gave me an opportunity to get some indoor low light action shots :D

    Depends on what you are shooting. I typically use spot metering and spot on the brightest light in the shot. This makes most of whatever else go to black, which may or may not be what you want.

    I find using evaluative and such takes too much of the scene into consideration for my liking. However, this does work well for wide landscapes.

    So really, depends on what works

    @Buckster

    Holy crap!!!!! That roller coaster are HUGE and HIGH!! lol Where is it?? and the fact it's surrounded by woods makes it look even more amazing and fun to ride :D
    and those long exposure shots are great too but they kinda look way too purple? did you use a filter or something?

    well I definitely like it :)
    that ferries wheel looks enormous!
