Thank you Rosina. I really enjoyed this photo because everyone knows a ferris wheel is round, so there was no excitement about photographing it. But there is a lot of excitement picking an interesting angle that brings a little drama to it.

Nice composition, well done!

Greetings from Holland, T NL.

Hank, I see what you mean about similarities. Tony

Good photo, and you get another thanks you from me, Tony. This one is for putting the conversation about this shot back in front of me so I can apologize to T NL for somehow failing to express my thanks for comments offered back in September.

Thank you T NL, and I'm sorry.

Hi Hank,

Know this pic all too well—always like clicking on it on G.E. Have looked at since I first joined in 2/08. Too funny that you were told you were going to be safer in the inner cars. Perhaps if you were told how the cars worked, the experience wouldn't be so embedded in your memory? Like learning what the end of a mystery before you read/see it. ;]

...and firmly planted in my memory it is! I can't remember any other ferris wheel where the cars moved on a track, and believe me, I always inspect them now.

Great shot Hank, light, composition, colours... all of them are perfect. Congratulations! I have included you in my favourites to enjoy your promising gallery with time. Cheers!

Thank you Morrique. You're making my day.
