Default Travelling Funfair Rides

The fair rolled into town so last night being opening night, I went out to take pictures. I think with all the lights and color, very little post-processing is needed. Only the first pic is done with HDR.

#1)


#2)


#3)


#4)


#5)


Thank you for looking. Any C&C welcome.

Thanks, Daniel and Ordo. I was surprised how easy it was to create the light trails. My very first shot -- camera on tripod (at tabletop-tripod leg height) on top of the car roof -- on auto (aperture priority mode) already dazzled me and got my adrenaline going. For those just starting in photography, if shooting funfair rides at night doesn't get you hooked, I don't know what will.

Thank you, all!

I added two more for your viewing pleasure -- and C&C :

#6) Same as #4, except I waited for the "Typhoon" to pause and swing the other way.


#7) Carousel.

Great shots, the longer exposure plays with the light nicely
