Thx, Ric, Stephanie, Christy and Susan! I went to the fair specifically looking to do some twilight, long-exposure shots. It proved harder than I thought ... LOL! I walked around for a couple of hours in the afternoon trying to find a good composition in a place where I could set up a tripod and not get trampled. I liked the colors here, but also the Ferris wheel framed by the other circular ride. I drew a lot of quizzical looks from fairgoers trying to figure out what I was doing. A couple of cops actually stopped to ask (just curious, not concerned about anything). Good learning experience!

That is an awesome shot! I have been wanting to get down there to do the same thing. (I live like 5 miles away!) So far I've only been able to get there during the day. :) Again, that is beautiful!

Thx, Autumn. I'm hoping to get down for another session before the fair is over, but may not make it. My band is playing a festival in Oregon next weekend, and I don't know if I have the time (and energy) during the week!

I'm loving everything about this. I especially like the two circles (ferris wheel and smaller ride). I'm seeing winner all over this one!
