Default Last Dumbo Ride for the night.

This is just a fun vacation shot.

We happened to be at the Dumbo ride right while Disney World was closing for the night. There was hardly anyone in line when we got on. Then when it came time for the last ride . . . the ride was half empty so I got out of the car with Madelyn and ran into the car in front of her to try to get this shot. I wasn't planning on having this opportunity so I just did the best I could . . .

I used the built-in flash to try to get some detail in her face and then forced a slow shutter speed to get some movement . . .

Work pretty well, maybe a little PP in lightroom to bring out just a bit more detail in the face.

Thanks for the comments!

I agree with the PP work. I just got lazy. But it was a lot of fun getting the chance to go after something like this . . .

Well done. I agree, though that some pp should be done to emphasize her face. After all, it is a picture of a happy little girl on a ride, rather than just a picture of the ride.
I did take a stab at it.
