My guess is that not a lot of people will appreciate how difficult a shot like that is to get. Somehow the EV/ISO and other settings were just right to get an across the board crisp and even lighted PIX of the active lighted objects. Also there is no CA/lens abberation (at least that I can tell). Presumably the rides were static/paused when the PIX was taken.

Shot was taken handheld while the ride was moving. Not sure how fast it was moving when I took the shot. Just like the lights being turned on meaning the 110 deg temps would be dropping to the cool mid 80's.

No camera I have would have been able to take a PIX like that with the rides in motion. ISO would have to be too high giving obvious noise and PIX discoloration (and usually uneven levels for the active lights) or the image is smeared because of slow shutter.

Anyways, interesting and fun PIX - a keeper.

Nice capture. Agree with the previous poster about difficulty of shooting carnival rides at dusk, though I haven't tried it since the film era. I'm curious about the shutter speed as Exif data contains only image size. Given how the passenger compartments are swung out by centrifugal force, it appears this ride is up to speed.

Not sure why the Exif data didn't show up with the picture.

DCRP Review: Canon EOS-7D Canon's top-of-the-line APS-C....
Pros: Very good photo quality, with a good lens; Low noise levels through ISO 1600 in low light, and ISO 3200 in good light

There you go. Just the body of that camera lists for $1250

They have come down in price a little from when I bought mine back in May of this year. Just wish I could get my talent to go up to match the camera.
