    So I have been itching to get a few slow shutter pics of carnival rides. Down the road from my house there is a small carnival with a few rides so we went by and I took a few pictures. All are shot with a tripod, and an xti with 17-50 tamron. Any and all feedback is welcome. Thanks everyone, have a nice night...........Peace

    I know the size is a little big, but I wanted the detail to show so I went for the larger size.

    They are all nice. And you have finally managed to take the kind of photos that are still on my "must-take-one-like-those-one-day-myself"-list. The colours are pretty!

    I like the second one the best because of the composition, and because the people stood still long enough to be in better focus than the first photo. I also notice that in the second one you included more of the dirt in the foreground, the glow of the lights on the ground I think makes for a more interesting picture.

    I did get a few of the crazy dance, but they didnt come out so well. I plan on going back in the next week and giving it another go. I think I will be able to get some better shots now that I have a little bit of a feel for what to expect. Thanks for all the feedback.

    One thing I really liked about these rides were the anime backgrounds.
