A spinning wheel is a device for spinning thread or yarn from natural or synthetic fibres. Spinning wheels appeared in Asia, probably in the 11th century, and very gradually replaced hand spinning with spindle and distaff. Spinning machinery, such as the spinning jenny and spinning frame, displaced the spinning wheel during the Industrial Revolution. (From Wikipedia)

Renaissance festival is not something I would expect to find in as Vegas. As such a nice surprise. That spinning wheel looks good and sidelight works well.

nice the view with the fat woman wearing her traditional costume to sit near her spinning wheel during Renaissance Festival. Excellent the light and the colour management as the clarity of the image.
Have a good weekend,Danos

It seems that those who spend a lot of time in Las Vegas can see the world without ever having to leave the city. Most famous buildings are copied here, cultures from all over the world are enacted here. Did anything actually ever originate in Las Vegas? ;-)
Apart from that this is a well taken photo with nice details and good colors. The woman is well seated and the light falls nicely.

The woman is in superb light, your lower angle viewpoint is perfect. I like the arrangement with the spinning wheel in FG and the boars inscript in BG.
Very well done.

This is a nice closeup shot of this woman and her spinning wheel. The lighting is fine drawing interest to the woman's face. The tight framing gives us nice detail.

Hi Eleu, Nice portrait of this woman spinning the thread on an old fashion way. You have brought me back to the 11th century with theis scene. Nice light and tones along with details. Best regards

That's not the wicked fairy putting a spell on the spinning wheel for Sleeping Beauty to ***** herself on? Sorry, just getting into panto mood!! A very Renaissance feel to this image Elue, love spinner's dress is so delightful and great that she never noticed the “intruder” with the camera. I think this Festival has provided you with lots of material, this is an excellent happy candid shot of the spinner 'at work' colour and lighting is sublime too, Great shot. TFS
