    Nice one, looks like a quiet night at the fair though - or is it actually earlier and brighter than it appears? What kind of light were you shooting in?

    thanks everybody...i was kinda worried about not being able to tell what it is cause of the shutter being so slow and the lights being so wild.

    but is at a fair LOL

    thanks for the reply
  15. Remember, it's a 13 second exposure, so only people that are standing still will register. Anybody walking around will have their image completely ghosted by the background.
  16. Awesome pic, I never even thought to use the McNair (or whatever it is over there in Salem Gate) for inspiration...

    wow your from covington! awesome! when it came this year i knew i wanted to go shoot it...ill most likely go back again before it leaves to try some more stuff i thought about.
  18. I look forward to you posting more shots. Sometimes it is just so slow around here I have trouble finding the right inspiration.
