The Ferris Wheel At Night






















I love that "Golden Hour" around sunset. These two pictures are taken within 20 minutes of each other. I have recently purchased a remote that will let me use the bulb setting for longer exposures. The picture on the left has a exposure time of .77 seconds and the one on the right has a exposure time of 2.5 seconds. I waited for the lights to come on and the Ferris Wheel to be in motion before taking the second shot. Duh! I think it looks better. May-be next time I'm at Lagoon, I get a picture from the ride. I wonder if they will let me? D200, Sigma 18-50mm f2.8 lens, f18, .77 sec and 2.5 sec. ISO 100.

Very nice sir! I have that same sigma lens, it's great isn't it. Looking to get a used D200 body myself (dang budget) Anyways, I've got some fun fair pics somewhere that remind me of this shoot, Now you've got me itching to find them. Anyways, great work man!
