Another magical shot. K, I don't know if you tried long and hard for this shot or just came along at the right time but the result is stunning.

this reminds me of that movie, Hitchcock I think, where the killer chases the lady to an amusement park on a small island. He kills her and all you see are her broken glasses. Great! And Hey Kev, I never get the amount of comments like that shot from my window received. that struck a nerve for some reason...

Kevin, how did you get this shot!? Was the wheel stopped? Seems like a long exposure would make for a blurry ferris wheel -- and it looks like a fast speed for that frozen choppy water... I can't figure this out. You're a magician.

Needless to say, this is one of my all time faves of yours. You really captured the instability and hidden tension that I always feel at the pier. It's not all lights and merriment -- there's definitely the undercurrent so beautifully reflected here. I LOVE this.

Simply amazing.
I was shooting the moon going in & out of clouds on what seems the same time from my patio. (last Saturday)

Love the sky.

Hey Cary, I mean Kevin. A ferris wheel at night is garish anyway, but this moon makes it just more so. I'm going with Ken Mac here -- something ominous, right down to the blood red water.

Brilliance, Kev. Just a flat-out tremendous photograph.

(Insomnia is under-rated, btw.)

Fantastic shot, Kevin. Just beautiful, I've never seen that ferris wheel have so much intensity, and what a sky!
