Very graphic, looks almost cartoon like with the simplicity of its' lines and the bold colours. Nice one.

This is FAB - love the feeling of the passengers waiting for the big dip just out of shot.
Click. Tom.

Thanks for your comments everyone.

WOW! An Indigo award. Thanks Magda - very honoured!

@Tom - they've actually just come down the big drop - this is the first rise the other side. The shutter speed could ahve done with being a bit slower to emphasise the blur more - but I was hand-holding and couldn't....!

Nice simple shot - skeletal even! Diagonals are always good.

I think this is fabulous, Steve. (But I wouldn't if I was on it - no head for these things!)

Good shot, compositon and the graphic nature of it work well. Not often a white sky is an advantage Smile

Great shot. The comp is striking and the highly saturated colours of the red track and cars really stand out.

Nice shot Steve, like the way the red track cuts across the frame.

You were lucky to find such a lovely grey sky in Blackpool Wink
