She adds so much magic to the wonders there already - I do like this one.

The yellow leg of the girl, the white ones of the horse, their heads up, hers down - a very nice tale for sure !

There is actually just enough blur in the background to give the effect of the motion, and judging by the camera position it didn't look an easy one to take.

@Curly: Hey Curly - you might enjoy my note to Susan - the blur in this is pure Photoshop.
This is a great pov and the motion blur is just perfect - - I love those hrorses. Nioce Job

So dynamic. Love the sense of motion.
28 Jul 2010 12:20am
Awesome catch.....were you actually riding while shooting????
28 Jul 2010 12:26am
@Susan from Pompano Beach, FL, USA: Yup - actually riding - we rode the carousel for three go-arounds - the guy running the ride was really cool about it. It was a slow afternoon and I think he was happy to see us - but...
On this shot we were stationary. I worked for this image. I isolated everything on the turntable in Photoshop, using various selection methods and saving the selections. After getting everything set - I loaded them and did an inverse selection. I then used just a little motion blur to suggest we were moving.
But the main reason I went to all this trouble was because I loved the image but there was too much light and too little contrast around Jesse. Doing all of this allowed me to tone down the outside light while softening the distracting outside details through the blur effect. So now you know...
28 Jul 2010 2:11am
OH! I REALLY like this - the motion, the colors, the concept - everything!
28 Jul 2010 2:34am
Nice composition! Perfect colors and lighting! Superb!
28 Jul 2010 2:53am
A fantastic work, Stephen. After reading your answer to Susan I can figure the steps to get such a dynamic image with the charming Jesse riding.

@Paco Díaz: Thank you, Francisco - we had great fun doing this shoot and it was well worth the effort.
great shot - love the bright sunlight (the adjustment is quite effective - looks very natural)!

I really like the angle of view of this image. The light and shadows work well together. Nice job, Stephen.
