Roller coaster

In July I went to an amusement park with my nephew (16), his mother and my husband. My husband and I are not so fond of all that fast attractions, so my nephew and aunt went in them by themselves. I do like watching other people in them though. This is a photo I took while we were waiting for my aunt and nephew to return from a ride (in another rollercoaster). I tried to capture how the little cars arrived at the curve. If I would have had my Canon EOS 300D with me I would have played around with the shutter speed, but I only had my so-called 'quick cam' with me, as a day in an amusement park is not suitable to take all my professional gear with me.

Very nice image Chantal, you've framed it just right. I've always wanted to take one of a coaster, have you got any from on the ride?

Very good framing on this, could maybe do with a touch more light on the car itself. Is this the python ride at Efteling by any chance? I only discovered last year that I like loop-the-loop roller coasters when I was at Efteling and I'm looking forward to going back there again this year.

It's not bad, lights no fire.
Cool shot.

I really like the way it is framed, and the sky and the dynamics. It would be even better if the cars were a little more lit - but a good capture anway
