Not its official name, but un-inspiringly called the Brighton Wheel. This is yet another sightseeing wheel which seem to be springing up all over the UK. It is situated right on the promenade to the east of the Palace Pier. Seen here in the last rays of the setting autumn sun.

Hi Brian, my neighbour,
Fantastic view of this huge wheel. Stunning colours of sunset, gorgeous composition. I wouldn't dare to go by it, although it must be a great fun and probably the views are great. have you tried it? a bit like Craig's wide angle shots. fantastic.
have a great weekend

these giant wheels are always such a cool subject to photograph but so much more so when combined with these beautiful warm colors, it really makes the structure stand out nicely. And you're right, these eyes are cropping up everywhere since the London eye made an appearance. A good thing for shutterbugs though
all the best

Just back from Liverpool and they even have one there! The late afternoon sky makes a superb backdrop for the wheel. Perfectly exposed and with beautifully illuminated detail. I like the inclusion of the elegant lamp on the right. Have a great weekend.

This brings back memories from my UK visit last summer. Good use of a wide angled lens with the lens barrel distortion well managed with verticals placed centrally. The lamp post at right seems determined to be part of the show! Excellent sharpness and graphism. Tfs!

This kind of ferries wheels seem to crop up everywhere these days but provide of corse a great way to enjoy a birds eye view of a place.
You captured this one here in a very appealing evening light against a gorgeous sky and even the included lamppost is very attractive.
have a great weekend

I love way the warm light is illuminating the wheel Brian; it accentuates the shape and 3 dimensional aspects of the structure very well. Nicely captured against the sky too.

sweet sweet sweet!
but you know what else captures my attention...the light fixture on the right.
It has that gothic look to it, too bad you couldn't fit in the other light fixture inside the frame too!
very cool look of the large wheel, love how it takes up all the space in the frame.
and of coure the colors are awesome too.
love the firery red tones mixed with the cooling blues.

Well, here we have it then, you've just given the official name...it shall now be known as such! They sure do seem to be gaining in popularity, aren't they? The only ones I don't care for are found at the traveling fairs, I never trust something can than be disassembled and put back together in the matter of hours!?
You have the eye of the tiger...no, wait..that's not the right metaphor here. Hmmm, how about just and "Eye for an Eye" then? :) Strong upwards perspective, and such rich coloring, that is some kind of sweet rustic red you've managed. 'Round and 'round she goes, just hope it's not the same for your stomach and you're feeling better now. Have a good one. Take it easy.
Cheers from Feenix,
Loved the "CCCC" :)

Really beautiful shot what is great is the light and the background color. Great use of the wide angle lens to included the whole thing and more.
Excellent rich colors and excellent details and depth.

This is excellently captured Brighton eye from very well selected viewpoint. The view from lover angle makes the eye structure majestic and dominant. The light is perfect, the contrast against blue sky superb.
Very well done.

très belle et originale présentation de cette roue sous une très belle lumière avec comme toile de fond un superbe ciel. Belle capture.

The autumn sun has lit this wheel perfectly. The wide-angle lens and close framing give a very dramatic effect. Great image.
Kind Regards, Ann
