The big wheel 55m high, affords an uninterrupted view of the enchanting lights of Winter Wonders and Brussels during the holidays. It was installes in Ste. Catherine square along with the Christmas Market.

Hello Daniel, my neighbour today,
This is a fine composition of the ferris wheel quite dramatically set upon the dark sky with a few glimpses of the city below. The crowded street is rather dark and could have benefitted from alight treatment with the shadows/highlights.

I like the novel framing of the wheel, but I think you should consider cloning out the edge of the building seen on the right. Like Gunnar, I also think judicious use of the shadows/highlight tool on the bottom part of the image would be helpful. Nevertheless, I like the play of light across the cabins and the busy street in the background and the wheel itself.

quel captage et cadrage de cette roue avec ce format allongé recherché qui coupe la rouge, les personnage merveilleux.
Bravo et amitié

it seems that most Cities in the world nowadays have a big wheel, we have one in my nearest City, Brighton now too. Like the way you have composed this, as it shows us its scale and the way it towers over the market. Looks impressive in this setting.
Regards - Brian.

So weird to see the funfair in winter. The grey sky and the ferris wheel look like odd partners, but they work so well together in this photo. Excellent bookmark framing, cutting the ferris wheel in half, yet leaving enough of it for us to know where we are. Excellent composition, really inventive.

As a straight record shot this is fine, although I might have been tempted to do some dodging of the shadows and burning in of the bright highlights, using levels. Good graphism of the big Ferris wheel and the market crowds add life & vitality. Tfs!

A nice street market scene similar to the markets that crop up in many towns and cities in the UK at Xmasthese days. I like how you have cropped the image - it emphasises the height of the wheel. I wonder what this woudl have looked like lit up at nightor with a slow shutter speed to create movemeent of the wheel?

The comp of this is so good with the focus is on the main interest, the stunning wheel but the eye is naturally led to the street scene below. The dof and the color tones are excellent, and the whites boosting the overall contrast enormously against the dark brooding sky. Fine shot indeed, Congrats
