No, It's a full tripod... 60" Benro. I've never had much luck with a monopod if the exposure is over 1 second. But I'm a large guy, so the crowd goes around me naturally. ;) Also, the sight of an SLR on a tripod makes most people shy away. Most of the time it's annoying: Crowd shots consist of photos of people's faces trying to get out of the photo! :rolleyes: But in cases like this, it's nice: Folks just naturally stay out of the Shot if they can. (This lens was a 17-40mm wide angle, so they're in the shot when they THINK they're clear! )

Great effect! Obviously you have no idea what the patterning will be until after the shot has been taken, but the expertise is in estimating, the knowledge is in bracketing, and the talent is in composing... I applaud you! I'd like to know -- do you use a monopod or a tripod? I'm guessing a monopod, due to the crowded conditions.

Thanks guys for the compliments! As for the details: Exposure was 1.3 Seconds at f/22 ISO 200. The ride was spinning REALLY quickly, and the folks in line weren't moving around, so this one came out unique like that. My later shots were as long as 15 seconds, and the crowd walking by all got blurred.

Just curious since I don't know much about photography, but how is it that the ride movement is blurry, but the people standing and watching aren't?
