    Good exposure, Andre, but which element indicates 'waterfront"?

    Re: Big Wheel:

    I agree, you captured the wheel very well.

    As a side note, have you tried taking the same photo at night time, when I expect it would be lit with colorful lights?

    Hi Andre,

    Nice photo... We have a local fair in town that I will likely visit... Any tips to share on how to photograph a Ferris wheel or any amusement rides in motion?

    That's a nice shot Andre. I like the slight lean to the right. Adds a dynamic to what would otherwise be a fairly static subject.

    The umbrella with "Bonaqua" written on it.

    Thanks Christina,
    Depending on the motion you would like to depict. If you would like to show any motion use a tripod at lower shutter speeds. I would like to do some night time shots in an amusement park trying out "dragging the shutter" a method I would like to master.

    You should get great shots with the D7100 in an amusement park. Just try different shutter speeds. Use shutter speed priority and go for it.

    Never thought of it that way.
