    The following images are from the worlds biggest travelling fair, That arrives into Hull (my home city) for 1 week every year, records show its been coming here since the 13th century.

    All shot with EM-5 and Panasonic 14mm lens, all shot out of camera jpegs.

    (note 3rd image is a blend of night and day)

    Great series. That first picture feels really ominous, lol.

    Loved looking through them. Thanks for posting.

    I went on 4 separate occasions, the day before it opened, a day visit and 2 night visits, the last night produced the sunset. The longest shutter speed was 1.3 seconds were the 5 axis IS came into its own as I don't like using tripods.

    Fairs are always a great place to get images, such diversity of subject matter. Thanks for sharing.

    Fantastic shots. Especially the first shot of the incredible sunset. I had the Panny 14 but sold it. Great to see it being used to such impressive effect. :)

    each shot a gem ... but I agree with your choice of which to put first, that one has stunning colours and tones.

    CGI could not do better

    A great set - particularly like No. 1, but excellent overall.

    Certainly a subject I don't see that much of!

    Very nice set! I just picked up the Pany 14mm and you have me inspired! And you did these handheld, too. Nice job!

    When you say that these are out of camera JPEGs, does that mean that no post processing was applied at all?

    Also, can you think of a reason for the rather nasty posterization going on in the bottom left corner of the first image? No criticism BTW, just an observation.

    Hi, when I say, out of camera jpegs, maybe a bit misleading, as I have cropped slightly and added a bit of vignette. What I mean't was, that they were not shot RAW
    I never shoot RAW as my lightroom is version 3 and my photoshop is an early Cs6 and both will not recognise my Raw files from my EM5

    Now you mention it, the foreground does look a bit garish, I think I was bit too heavy trying to pull the shadows, Now if I had shot RAW.......

    And Yes all ,hand held, the longest 1.3 seconds but most taken at 1/30th - 1/60th

    Wow... these are really great. Wonderful to see what can be done in the right hands. Inspiring. Thanks for sharing.

    P.S. How many shots did you take during your four visits. My biggest problem recently has been over-shooting... you got some stunning images.
