    its a real bugger trying to get a good shot of the London Eye at night as it never stops turning, so out of about 10 shots this is the only good one

    I really like this shot. Funny that you say it never stops moving...I don't think I've ever actually seen it in action. The first time I saw it was the year it was supposed to open, but never did, and the next time, it was so cold and rainy, that there was no one there...alas, I didn't know nothing about photography then...otherwise I would have taken advantage of it not moving :lol:

    Great shot and thanks for sharing.

    this is very good... btw... have you tried long exposure on this one? I mean... a minute? might be interesting as well!

    Yes, it's a pig to photograph isn't it? You've done really well there! If you wait until about midnight, it stops! :)

    Good luck with it...I think it would pretty cool...but I like blur and streaks, so what can I say! If you can hold off a year, we can all set up our tripods together at the 2nd Annual International TPF Meetup (unless of course it's in France or Holland :lmao: )
