À ce que je vois c'est la fête et bien présentée avec de merveilleuses couleurs. Ça me rappelle de bons souvenirs quand j'étais jeune et il y a longtemps que je n'ai pas embarqué dans une grande roue. Je crois que j'ai passé l'âge.
Tous mes compliments et bonne fin de semaine, Encore plus beau en grand.

Good afternoon Farhat,
Nice and colorful funfair scenery, vivid and vibranr tones.
The big-wheel is an eyes cating element, yet I was looking at people as well, the ladies with diff. colors of their saries. Joly ambiance, well collected inspite the low light prevailed.
Have a nice weekend,

A fine picture with lots of life and action and equally lots of colours. No doubt a great place for snap-shots. The big wheel creates a great background and underscores the atmosphere of fun and enjoyment.

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the festival place with colorful decoration, shop and amusement. People always like a festival. And, it's also impressive in ferris wheel of backdrop.

Of course, this is a colourful scenery provided by a mobile circus that reminds me a sad souvenir, though, because I lost much money by then when I was adolescent in the 'roulette game'!
Thanks for this cheerful poster.
See you soon.

If you ever want to catch a lively atmosphere full of fun and interesting people and events, this is the kind of place to be! :) That depiction is well conveyed here, as we see many people and colorful dress that makes for a vivid depiction of the upbeat mood. The ferris wheel makes for a strong focal point here, and the multitude of people add the action and appeal. Nicely composed and displayed. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

Splendid image that captures all the atmosphere of celebration and joy at this festival, the presence of all these people, gives great vitality to the picture, the big wheel and other sideshows, get a nice chromaticism.
An image with high brightness and perfect sharpness.
Very good job.
Good night and happy week.
ourania (37374) 2014-04-11 13:51
in spite of the low and moody lighting, you captured very vivid and attractive colours and an effective sense of movement that render the scene vibrant. Your well considered framing plays a great role for the impact of this view. The wheel dominates the setting in an elegant way and there's much human interest around it. The scene looks quite natural, the flow of daily life is uninterrupted. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

This is a great daily life shot. The people in the foreground add life and interest for the shot. The placement of the Ferris wheel is nice drawing the eye across the scene. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has nice sharpness.
