Thank you!
Sure, I'll explain, Rahul. I set up my camera on a tripod for the long exposure. I also used a remote shutter release to avoid any chance of camera shake. And I pretty much just waited for some movement from the Ferris wheel (which, if you've even watched a Ferris wheel for 40+ minutes continuously, you'll know that it's quite intermittent). Depending on the length of the exposure, my results were quite different but all really exciting. This one was a relatively shorter exposure. So I was able to get that "windmill" pattern.
