    yeah, the whole carnival industry somewhat looms in our minds to begin with and the title further leads you to a dark place.

    peggy gardner said (6 Jun 2008):

    yes, at night. the harsh shadow is from big spot lights beaming down on the ride. I pushed this film (infrared) it to 800 iso and then compensated during development. I believe my EV was f11 @250 but I'm not positive, could have been @500..

    Outstanding on the POV and the BW/push; it feels like we're there in person.

    Gets my vote, Peggy! My poor nighttime shot has two votes and one of those is mine LOL

  • peggy gardner

    peggy gardner said (7 Aug 2008):

    well once it goes to voteable, you have to get everyone to come back and vote...and they've already seen it..and figure they've already favorited it. put your link here and maybe it will be easy for all to link and vote !!

  • peggy gardner

    peggy gardner said (7 Aug 2008):

    great shot peggy, I just viewed, picked as favorite and voted, yeah!!

  • peggy gardner

    peggy gardner said (7 Aug 2008):

    thanks LG - it is labor intensive to vote and then get carried on a long boat ride in a slow river of mud (pls vote on another, and another of non hot pics ) and you lose your place.
    I forget to favorite first, or surely I'm too tired to reload back back back to my spot.
    sorry for the inconvenience...and thanks for your determination to make my day !!!.

    Peggy it is ok to loose some hot spot. lots of good photos comes along but you could always say it's been hot! also surprisingly, some simple idea gets hot spot, too and I thought that was really cool, it gives me hope.
