    Haven't had much time to check in around here lately but have a little bit of free time today ... so here goes.

    Okay, this was shot today at the local fair ... I was trying a new compostion on a very typical ferris wheel.

    I'm looking for critique on the compostion, the black and white conversion and anything else that stands out for anyone ... good or bad.

    Lens Tamron 18-200
    Focal Length Around 100
    Shutter Speed 1/125
    Aperture Value 13.0
    ISO Speed 100

    Thanks for looking! :D

    I like the take on the ferris wheel. The shot is well composed and the exposure and or conversion is on point. I think I am a little bummed that not all the seats are filled. You will have to tell us why you chose BW over colour.

    thanks for your responses guys.

    craig ... this is a small town fair and that seat was the only one on the entire ferris wheel that was filled. I actually shot this with the intention of the conversion to black and white and I like the texture of the clouds in b&w.

    Karalee ... I like the one chair as well.

    JonMikal ... i would if I could ... but it was just the one shot I got and it's as is :confused: will I never learn? :mrgreen:

    I really like this. I like the composition and what I read into it is that the lack of people in the later seats shows the decline of old fashioned style entertainment.

    But thats just my reading. Great conversion/exposure. Superb shot ;)

    Very nice photo. I agree with Jon about the left side.
