Gempa Tri Muryono, 25, Student, Melbourne, Australia “I’m from Yogyakarta, Indonesia, and while home on holiday I went to the local carnival for Sekaten, an annual festival. I wanted to accentuate the light and the colors, so I positioned myself under this air balloon ride and panned with the motion, using my SB-900 flash to keep the ‘7’ bright. It took many tries, but fortunately the operator didn’t charge much to keep running the ride!” Tech Specs: Nikon D700 with 14–24mm f/2.8 Nikkor AF-S lens; 1/2 sec at f/10, ISO 800. Minor adjustments, Adobe Photoshop CS4.
