Like the lines in the second picture, shows a lot on movement. Don't care much for the first one; think you were too close to the subject and to many other things in the frame taking ones eye away for the main subject. Maybe backing up from the subject so you capture more of the wheel next time would help.

interesting. My reaction was the exact opposite of the previous poster. I liked the first one but not the second. Both are ruined by the copyright. Honestly, no one is going to steal your tilt-a-whirl photos.

I do agree that having more of the ride in the image would improve the first shot. The second shot I just have no idea what it even is.

The structures on the right side of the first shot make it look as if the picture should be rotated 90 degrees to the right.
Both pics could use a wider angle for more context, IMO.

I watermark all of my photos.. and you would be surprised at what people will steal.. I use to use Deviant art for my photos, until I found that DA was selling my photos for a HUGE profit, and not sharing it with the photographer.. BUT their TOS stated that they had the rights to do that.. So now anything that gets uploaded, gets a Watermark. Edit: Watermarks removed

I would have liked to have gotten more of the ride in frame. But being on crutches made that difficult.

Pantharen,

I like the 1st one as a vertical shot! Not only the motion . . . but I can feel that compression like I'm going to get crushed by the ride. :) I like the angles and the lines. It really makes for a topsy-turvy feel!

Take care, Happy Shooting!

Like the new edit on the first picture.

If I was to critique... the subject blur is fine- but the rest of the shot should be sharp to enhance that effect in my humble opinion.
Nice idea however... :)

I didn't edit it, other than stand it up as it should have been.. That is really the unedited version..

Both pictures were taken with a point & shoot Nikon Coolpix L24 set on Auto night mode. It is my really basic pocket camera.. Very limited options..
