I wish you a pleasant time too. Meanwhile I enjoy watching this photo a lot more than I would enjoy being up there. That would definitely not be a thing for me, but the view of the people willingly circling below the clouds around the colourful tower is fascinating. It is really well captured with superb colours and light.

Excellent pov and result, well taken, good idea, perfect light capture.
worldcitizen (5611) 2013-09-01 11:58
I like the sky in this photo; the lighting and clouds are very pretty. The ride adds a splash of color and action to the scene. Your POV looking up really makes it feel like these people are swinging high up in the clouds. Have a great September!

bellissima idea, il cielo è perfetto per una foto di grande effetto come questa.
Molto belli i colori, vedere queste persone lassù mi mette ansia, ma deve essere molto emozionante.

this is a stunning composition and very dramatic. the clouds are wonderful and contrasted with the blue sky, make a fantastic background to this dynamic image.

Emotions fortes garanties. Les participants doivent avoir la tête qui tourne dans les nuages.
Très bon cadrage.
Une bien belle réussite.

Spectacular image in great dynamic effect. Well taken, I wish you all the best.
jhm (127883) 2013-09-02 4:22
I think that a lot people there above get a feeling of fright.
On these height and a rotation almost the feeling as pilot.
Excellent composition, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Hi Chris. Looks like a giant flower from another planet.It is a joyful and bright image with excellent POV. The clouds add to the dynamism of the scene. Regards. Klaudio.
ikeharel (43877) 2013-09-02 6:10
What a joy to sit on the carousel, Chris, only if you are not afraid of heights, and no-less a beautiful photo taken.
The figures sit on the slings shown in superb clarity, and pic. has fine contrast on the partly cloudy blue sky.
The tower is like an impressive iron-flower.
A well done photojob. My cong.'s.

Dobar dan, popodne.
Lep pogled na ringispil u zabavnom parku ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast, lepe boje.
Dobar rad, lepo pokazan trenutak.
Lep ali opasan trenutak.
Lepo popodne i sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela.
Good afternoon, this afternoon.
Nice view on the carousel in an amusement park ...
A good time recording, contrast, beautiful colors.
Good work, beautiful moment shown.
Beautiful but dangerous moment.
Nice afternoon and all the best in the new week that started.

μια φανταστική εικόνα με απλή σύνθεση μεν αλλά και με ακαταμάχητο δυναμισμό και υπέροχα χρώματα που δεν σε αφήνουν να ξεκολλήσεις από την οθόνη. Μου αρέσει πάρα πολύ η συμμετρία και η προοπτική καθώς και τα ασυνήθιστα χρώματα του στύλου. Ευτυχώς υπήρχαν αρκετοί γενναίοι εκείνη τη στιγμή να στριφογυρίζουν με φόντο έναν πραγματικά συναρπαστικό ουρανό. Η παρουσία τους εμπλουτίζει τη γραφιστική απεικόνιση και μας φέρνει πιο κοντά στην εμπειρία αυτής της εκπληκτικής "πτήσης". Εξαιρετική δουλειά, συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,

What a sense of weightlessness and fun in this shot, and an almost 3d effect which is vey cool. I feel I could step inside this very cool picture. What a sky and what a perspective!
All the bst
photoray (6628) 2013-09-02 15:05
Magical straight up skyward view of the enormous ride, twirling the people through the clouds and all in colorful saturations.
pierrefonds (50948) 2013-09-02 17:55
Les nuages cadrent bien le manège. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du manège. La bonne luminosité rehausse la beauté des couleurs. Bonne soirée.
tedesse (23996) 2013-09-02 19:08
Wonderful attraction for the brave.
Excellent POV and composition.
Super colors and sharpness.
ChrisJ (91168) 2013-09-03 2:21
A good upward pov. Looks like a jesters cap from this angle. Good pp work on the clouds in the sky with excellent sharpness on the colorful red star of the amusement ride, which also contrasts well against the blue sky. I was surprised to see that several Cyrillic alphabet letters are derived from the Greek alphabet, on my recent visit to Greece. So it was easier for me to get around and read bus and boat tickets as I already know the Russian alphabet! The people provide scale. Tfs!
yquem46 (35256) 2013-09-03 7:41
A really impressive shot from the low pov
Strong contrast against the blue sky and the white clouds
Well done, best regards
gervaso (9247) 2013-09-03 16:45
Both pictures are great, but I prefer this colorful one, with strong and beautiful colors, especially with the open sky as background! The sharpness is also very good! Excellent job!
jcpix (6504) 2013-09-03 16:58
I was torn between the two versions, but ultimately decided on this one because it had so much of my favorite color attached to it...hard for me to ignore the blue! :) A wonderful perspective, you've given a great sense of height and action here. Not something I would dare try myself, I'd much rather photograph it, and hope to come away with an image as well done as this! Great look upwards with sharp detail and colorful contrast. Nicely done! Have a great day ahead. Take care.
Miguel82 (14332) 2013-09-04 6:08
An original pov and a good result Chris, good view of that attraction, blue sky, good sharpness, one should not have vertigo to go in that carousel
Fis2 (76908) 2013-09-04 13:47
Beautiful sky, excellent effect.
I like POV and colors.
Very well done.
Graal (92110) 2013-09-04 23:37
good shot and caught scene. Good reportage from Luna Park in Athens. I like the colors and contrast. Image is well composed. Good presentation.
Have a nice day.
abmdsudi (32471) 2013-09-05 2:10
Hi action shot well frozen filled by wonderful cotton clouds shaded by the contrasting blue sky. You've captured the vivid colours and atmosphere really well here particularly capturing the happy mood with the afternoon light. Congrats
Gigidusud (10158) 2013-09-05 4:14
Great capture from Luna Park! Splendid scene on the cloudy sky. I like a lot!
Romano46 (11375) 2013-09-05 12:09
le tue ultime due foto rappresentano lo stesso soggetto da te proposto in due diverse versioni: colori e bianco e nero.
Sono sincero: preferisco nettamente la verisone a colori perchè permette di apprezzare i colori della torre e lo splendido effetto del cielo.
Anche quest'ultimo è apprezzabile nella versione in bianco e nerop però il colore della torre viene ad essere totalmente annullato e si perde gran parte del contributo che il colore aggiunge nella composizione, la quale appare perfetta.
Uno scatto molto ben fatto che, in ogni caso, mi sembra abbia colto il favore degli amici di TE.
Ciao e buona serata
serp2000 (33057) 2013-09-05 20:22
The colorful version looks more attractive. Amazing composition, perfect DoF. It looks like a Polarized filter using. Well done!
Do you finish your vacation?
Best wishes from Russia!
Silvio1953 (105343) 2013-09-06 6:59
Ciao Chris, I like more color version, great PP work, fantastic sky, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
fabbs99 (10998) 2013-09-06 12:52
Lovely shot with great clarity.The ride is pretty high and probably frightening.Great colors of the sky.Very well done.TFS.
nikkitta (8885) 2013-09-07 13:50
Catching eye capture, taken at the right moment , with the kind of carrousel in full movement having as BG the impressive sky
Like to watch it safe at my desk not flying so high
Have a great weekend
eldancer1 (20690) 2013-09-08 9:04
Awesome pov of this ride! And the riders must really enjoy it, good for adrenaline rush. There's a ride in Las Vegas that spins the riders 900 feet off the ground--no thanks, I'll stay on the solid ground. Good lighting and good details. Well done, tfs.
adramad (30851) 2013-09-12 14:54
Once back from my vacation at the beach, I'm active again in these pages.
Exquisite and original composition, showing us from below this attraction of the fair, the perspective of people in the chairs is wonderful, very well complemented by the spectacular sky.
Very nice range of colors.
Superb brightness and sharpness.
I wish you a good day.
maloutim (9461) 2013-09-13 10:30
What a beautiful shot of this carousel against the lovely cloudy sky ! The effect given by the whirling seats seen against the light, is great, as if they wanted to reach the sky !
Thanks for your best wishes for the winter, but fortunately or hopefully we have still a while to go before that sad season arrives.
Thanks for sharing.
adores (30775) 2013-09-15 16:54
A great pov and composition! Your pov and PP really made the photo even more impressive. I just love the silhouettes of the people on the chairs and those fantastic clouds. Hard to imagine how they are feeling there:)!
zoomer (4225) 2013-09-29 14:43
