Hello and Wow,This piece is beautiful. It has a fairytale feeling to it, yet the cars and streetlights bring a modernized balance. The shadow surrounding the scene brings a sense of mystery to the picture, but there might be just a bit too much of it. The lighting of the carousel is great, and the trees in background add to the mysterious effect. The clarity and shine of the ride and also the colors blend well. I believe a bit of cropping would be effective in bringing out the best in this. However, overall it is a wonderful work of art!

This makes me think of Ray Bradbury's novel "Something wicked this way comes".

The way you have framed the enticing glow of the Merry-Go-Round with the blurred vignetting of curtains(?) seems to suggest a mood of suspicion to me. The carnival seems like a wonderful place from a distance, with strange sights, sounds, and smells. But get closer, look behind the scenes, and you find litter, tired, worn-out faces, and sometimes unscrupulous carnies willing to cheat a person for a few extra dollars.

I think the sepia tones help to subvert what would normally be bright and colourful lights and reinforces the feeling that this carnival only 'pretends' to be fun.

Just thought you might like to know, I used this image to complete a writing exercise for a writing course. The finished short story is on my website, along with the image--with credit to you, of course. I have the credit linking to this page. If you would rather something else linked, a website of your own perhaps, please let me know. Also, if you want the image removed, please tell me. It's such a great image that I'd love to share it with the story but if you don't like that, then I don't have any issue with removing it from the story page. Just let me know.

This shot is magical. From one position it tells a complete story. The colours are like a dream, and the fact your looking through a gap at something to grand and bright gives a perspective that we are looking through the eyes of someone. It's just great :). I adore photographs that tell such a story.

Ah, the vision of Fantasy place through a chainlink fence! So close, so glowing with promise, yet so utterly out of reach!
To me, this is seen through eyes of a child who would give just about anything to get there, but his/her wishes would not be fulfilled :(

Extremely gorgeous. A very nice idea taken from behind a curtain if I think that's what it is.
And I would agree with ~electricshadow10
This is extremely amazing and brought a big smile to my face.
CONGRATZ ON THE DD:D:D:D

... Wow, I don't really know what to say.
That gorgeous lit up carousel in the middle of
a city just quieting down to doze off into a sleep
to dream of the same sparkling lights it gives off.
The way things all work together is awesome ...
Amazing job.
