3 exposures, including one with panning action, gives this impression of some carnival rides.

This is very nice picture! I am particular to abstract lights pictures like this. Could you explain a little bit more about this, what was the ride that you took of? I can see what look like a merry go around but what is it you took in the other two exposures? And did you take this picture with a film camera or digital? At what setting was it?

Well, I can tell you that it was a film camera, and that all three exposures were taken at 1 second, but fankly I simply can't remember many more specifics. Glad you like it though. I'm uploading another. This is the "pirate ship." Single exposure, also at 1 second. #1126

Both of the above were taken at 1 second on Fuji Superia 400, and with a 28-80 zoom on a tripod, at the shorter end of the focal range. For the first shot, I honestly can't remember the rides involved. I took many and did not record specifics. Since you liked the first (thank you), I sent the second, which is a single exposure of "The Pirate Ship."

Thanks Again - Paul S. #1127
