Amusement park rides make outstanding photo subjects at night. Unfortunately, both of these shots are overexposed, thus keeping some of the colors from coming through.

I like the effects on the first picture. Do you mind sharing some EXIF data just so we don't have to go through the exercise of downloading the picture,...

Thank you for your replies and comments. Tullio, I don't mind if you download the picture to find the EXIF data, but I am not sure it is there. Next time I will try to keep it. Here is another one:

Arty, how did you do that last one? It looks like either a double-exposure (not liikely) or a composite done in Photoshop. Although this can be done in most DSLRs using slow sync on the flash, I don't think that's the case here. The reason I say that is that the background show camera shake while the foreground is clear.

As anyone who has been around here for awhile, I don't like manipulations created in your editor. This includes composite images. I usually like to see what came out of the camera, not what came out of the editor. Normal post processing (exposure, color balance, cropping, etc.) are OK.

This challenge encourages you to be artistic but in front of the camera, not in your editor.

If you used slow sync for this shot, please tell everyone how you did it. I know, but I'm not sure everyone else does.

Cal, it is a Slow Sync with my Nikon CoolPix 5000. The foreground was in a complete darkness, that's why it is so clear. But, sorry, there was some post processing done:
1. Red eye removed
2. Skin brushing
Here is an original:

That last photo came from PS and I don't believe the effect was created in camera. For one thing, flash was used to photograph the woman and since the camera will force a higher speed with flash, I doubt there would be enough exposuretime to capture all that background light.
