Wow, those are some superb pictures! Thank you very much for sharing them. Worlds of Fun looks like a really fun park that I would definitely like to check out someday. Drove past it once on a work trip, but that's as close as I've gotten. Patriot looks fantastic! Again, very nicely done!!
I would rather be off riding coasters!

Very nice! I love your composition.

One of the better Photo TR's on here. You should shoot flat rides, too.

Well that is an really awesome camera compared to its price! But if you get the money, I can really recommend buying a better one :) I recently bought a D90, and it is awesome. Its incredibly fast, and I haven't regretted it a bit. Still, it cost quite a lot (I bought it a bit cheaper here in Singapore). And the editing turned out pretty good in those shots. I like the colors in most of them :) Anyways, its not the camera but the photographer that influence the quality the most ;) Great pictures, looking forward to your next report!

I agree with everyone else; you are really quite good at photography. Your pictures are all so clear and very well framed--and the track close-ups appealed to my nerdiness, so extra kudos! I also love the close-up shots of people's faces; you never know what priceless expressions you'll capture.

Thanks for sharing these! They're really convincing me that I should make that drive out to Kansas City this summer.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

The D90 is great! I'm definitely glad I made the switch to SLR a couple years back. It's really been a lot of fun to experiment with all the different options available. I'm actually looking to buy a Canon 7D and 5DMarkII this winter. My mother and I shoot wedding videos ( www.capturesinframes.com ) on the side and we're really interested in the video capabilities in the new SLRs.

You're absolutely right about the skill set required by the photographer. An SLR is simply a fancy point and shoot until you go into manual mode and begin to understand what exposure, shutter speed, f-stop, and ISO really mean. I've seen photographers do stunning work with nothing more than a disposable camera. I don't mean to toot my horn at all here. People are always surprised when I tell them I shoot wedding videos with a cheap Sony consumer camcorder. Again though, as long as you understand what is going on inside the camera you can really make a photo/video shine in editing.

Again though, thanks for the kind comments! I loved shooting Patriot, the colors are great. I can't get over how curvy those damn B&Ms are! They're like one big transition for the entire circuit. =)
