    Congratulations - super shot, super Ferris wheel. The sense of scale is perfect.

    Absolutely superb for this challenge. No brainer for Robert I guess.

    This is so perfect for the theme, and so perfectly taken. I love the angle, the detail and the crisp colours.

    My second choice for entry in this theme was the Ferris Wheel at our local riverfront carnival.
I once worked at an amusement park and was fascinated with the Ferris Wheel and the Merry-go-Round.
A psychiatrist would have a field with me on his couch.
You have a grand example here -- well done.

    The challenge said the entries should 'scream out circle', and this certainly does that. I have seen this in person and I think you did a fine job of capturing it. One of my favorites.

    Has an unreal (almost HDR) look to this. I don't mind that but that PP clashes with the more real sections along the bottom of the frame. You are obviously trying to get the reds and blues of the shades to go with the reds and blues of sky and ferris wheel components which is OK but as I say it clashes (to my eye) with the slightly unreal feel of the PP. Still an early favourite

    Beautiful exposure and detailing. I see you cropped out the ground but I would have gone further and cropped the shot at least above the trees and probably just above the tent. This is one shot where you don't need to see the whole circle to have it scream circle and the crop, I think, would add dramatic punch and also make for a cleaner image. Still very well done!!! [Edit] I've changed my mind; your crop is superior especially because of the red and blue tents bordering the bottom. What bothers me, I think, is not the white tent but its size though it helps emphasize just how great in size the wheel is; the tents provide a desirable sense of scale which would not be present without them. The photo could still use a little more sharpening or, perhaps, there is a little camera shake if handheld here since it is not quite as crisp as I think it should be. Still colours are beautiful. I'll have to revisit my voting.
