Congratulations Robert!!!! You made 2nd prize....Isn't that quite an honor??

BTW...I hadn't seen this one until now! Robert!! I'm so envious...I wish I would have thought of it!! it's brilliant! CONGRATULATIONS! #8579

Thank you so much, Dolores.

It may be somewhat unwise to selfcriticize the winning shot, but I intended to shoot it a little earlier, with some more colour in the sky. Unfortunately, when I arrived on location, the power went down!!! and did not come back until it was almost completely dark.
In my opinion, slightly brighter sky would make the shot better. What do you think?

Thanks again!

Well Robert...there is no harm in reshooting just for comparison's sake but IMO, darker backgrounds accent vivid colors like this beautifully! I always choose dark backgrounds when I want to emphasize color. You're being hard on yourself, I think. I think it's perfect as is! #8589

Robert,
I used to run one of these rides in Denver, in 1962. It was quite a ride!!
You have done an excellent job of capturing this spectacle.
