    Achieving the perfect frame on this one was a little rough. To me it is a little more interesting then the standard fair shot. Would of helped if I could get the flash 10 feet above my head. On one hand I think the hot spots create a crown. On the other hand they are just dreadful hot spots. Let me know what you think.

    Nikon D1 1/6 sec @ ƒ10. ƒocal length= 35mm. Slow flash on Manual.

    I would have liked to have seen the same shot but without the inflatable dog in it! There are some nice colours and patterns in the wheel even with the hot spots. Did you use a tripod with this or hand held? The motion blur of the lights seems more linear than circular.

    Thanks for the reply. I love the dog. I shot a lot of the rides, but the dog in this one added an interesting twist. This was shot handheld with a flash.

    well I don't mind the dog... but it is tooooooo blurred. I'd like to see it sharp. the dog just stands out from the pic and it is interesting but I don't like that everything is unsharp here

    Well it is handheld. Sort of a "last shot on the card" deal. Sometimes I do not mind blurry or soft. In this case I agree that it is a tad too much.
