Cattle market plus cow fighting (and several fair stalls). Today the animals attend the auctions. Uh, I mean they'll be auctioned off. You can still see them until 4pm today, methinks, but the cow fighting was only yesterday. The Stiermarkt event is located somewhere between the police headquarters and Herti Stadion, can't miss it.

You had me chuckling. The caption for the pic of the 3 young Braunvieh should be: "We are boys; we're not your toys..."

Re: Post Your Photos From Switzerland!

A few of you may have already seen this one (EF photoclub, Talacker regulars), but I thought I'd post it anyway

From May the first this year. I call it "Strictly no Dancing"

Now this has left me curious as to what you consider "Consumer Level Equipment". Of course it's not the camera that makes the photo, it's the photographer, but still

There is a ferris wheel in Zürich.




Hitting warp speed in 3... 2... 1...



Cant help but thinking about Bond in the centrifuge in Moonraker

nice images!!!
am i guessing right - after a quick look - that this image is a puddle and the ferris wheel is a reflection - and you've done some crazy colouring on the "dirt" to make it psycadelic pink??

I've seen a few of these done and I believe the colour of the dirt comes directly from the ferris wheel lights. I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure about it.

Re: Post Your Photos From Switzerland!

Slaphead is right, the neon lights on the ferris wheel are the main light source for the mud and therefore cast a hue on it.

This is a single exposure and apart from some contrast adjustments, the picture is not THAT much different than straight from the camera. I may have adjusted the white balance to make the white lights in the puddle white.

It was taken during a Zürich photoclub night.
