Hope there aren't too many - thanks for looking. The builings are in Detroit - the Rides are in Windsor.

It was easy, once inspired by others (are you listening Cal). All have been resized for easy viewing but will accept ALL critiques. I'm using the istD.

I'm certainly no expert, but I think you did a nice job wit hthe exposure. Very little of the backround stuff appeared to be blown out and certainly your subject wasn't blown out. The first is my favorite. How long was that exposure? It looks like it was going 100MPH. You can almost see the little kid vomiting all over the car below!:G

super job - like the ferris wheel (pic 1) and the tilt-a-whirl type ride the best.

Nighttime at the carnival can produce some fantastic pictures as you have demonstrated. I love the colored lights and motion and I love to try to capture it with the camera. I think all of the pictures are great except the last which is "almost great". It is slightly overexposed in the foreground.

I find that the biggest problem in shooting timed exposures at the carnival is contending with the crowds of people. It is often difficult to get the shot you want without having someone walk through it. I looks like you found some good vantage points for these shots.

Kudos,

Cal Rasmussen

All great shots nlp, my favs are # 1 and 3, but # 5 is very interesting it has a bit of aouter limitsepisode feel to it.

Best regards,

Mag
