Disneyland photography! It's hard to tell from this exposure but this is the merry go round next to the teacups (kids favorite) and Dumbo (kids second favorite). We spent a LOT of time chilling out there, so I took advantage of the time to put the D700 into shutter priority mode and get a bit creative. The reason for shutter priority mode is because I knew I wanted about 1-2 seconds to get a good blur on the lights, but didn't want to mess with finding the correct aperture for the shutter I selected.

I like how the horses on the ride left a cool streak across the bottom of the image, and the implied motion in the ride because of the lights.

1.6 seconds at f13, shutter priority mode, ISO200.

Have a great week everyone!

    A great long exposure, always a danger that it becomes too chaotic, but you always seem to manage well in preventing that.
