Default Give Us Your Favorites - The County Fair

I love night time long exposure shots with lots of bright lights. Unfortunately for me, where I live only affords me about 3 days of what I really like in the form of the County Fair. This is "The Tornado":

Very nice! There's only two nights a year I can shoot a midway easily, didn't go this year as there wasn't much for rides. Maybe next year I'll make a point of going to some place at night to photograph rides like this, it's always fun. Did you use a tripod?

Yes to the tripod and also a remote wireless shutter release for my D40.

I love shots with light traces, however, this shot is significantly overexposed. I think I would have shortened the exposure by about 30% or stopped down one f-stop.
