    This was a test shot, but I liked it more after viewing on screen.
    It was taken during playtime. When I was about to shoot , a guy walked in and I waited a bit longer until he walked to the middle of the frame before pressing the shutter.

    The subject is interesting but the way that it is framed isn't. Like you said this is a test shot, post a better shot after test.

    if you can get someone to hold still and have the carousel motion blurred from long exposure i thnk that looks sooooo cool, but that requires a tripod and long exposures which maybe hard to set up during a busy time around the carousel

    Adding motion blur to the shot will increase effect. I agree. It was not possible at that time, I did not have my tripod then. :lol:


    edouble: I'm not too certain about your comment, pls elaborate, thanks!
    ;):D

    Sure - IMO - In a situation like this (specifically this ONE) where you are not able to fully light the entire scene I would have had zoomed onto one area of the carousel instead of the entire ride. I think the picture would be more interesting that way. Maybe even try slow sync flash.

    I am going to the boardwalk this weekend. I wills see what I can come up with at the carousel!

    I think it would be better without the person in the front, just my opinion, nice shot though, good exposure.
