    This is my first set of pictures with my newly acquired Pany 14mm. PP in lightroom with vibrance and saturation turned up a bit so colours pop.

    Enjoy and as always comments are always welcome.

    Very nice, Peezie. You captured those Expo colors well.

    The last time I went to the Ex this year I took this one from the Ferris Wheel with my 1953 Jupiter-3 50mm f/1.5...

    I used to be too. I overcame it by seeking out high places, and even taking jobs in arborism topping trees and such. Best way to fight any phobia. ;)

    Just opened my book, you're right sir it does look like a peterson photo.

    Im not to sure about other places but the one in Toronto is actually the Canadian National Exhibition(CNE). It gained a nickname over the years as "the Ex"... Thus leading to their famous slogan "let's go to the Ex".

    more info here... Canadian National Exhibition - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I would say they are the Canadian equivalent of a state fair. The Canadian National Exhibition is the biggest one in Canada. My home town hosts one called the "CLE" or Canadian Lakehead Exhibition. They have a traveling carnival/midway, entertainment and, of course, a bunch of agricultural exhibits. It runs for one week every August :smile:

    The last picture you posted of the ferris wheel looks alot like the one in the book "Understanding exposure" by bryan peterson:2thumbs:. specially the colours and composition is just really reminiscent of a picture in a wonderful book:cool:.

    We're talking about the long exposure photo, right?

    It was a cool shot. :thumbup: I like the pano better myself, though. ;)

    Oh kewl! It's also similar to the cover of Jeff Wignall's "Exposure Photo Workshop" book published by Wiley. The "Ex" is one of my favourite places to experiment with long exposures. The colourful lights are exceptional subjects.

    P.S. Come to think of it, maybe "Ex" stands for exposure in this case. :rofl:
