Cotton Candy Stand, Beamsville Fall Fair – HDR/Tone-Mapped

Cotton Candy Stand, Beamsville Fall Fair - HDR/Tone-Mapped
Beamsville, Ontario is a small town here in the Niagara Peninsula about 8 km (5 miles) East of Grimsby, where we live. They have an annual fall fair, and my wife, being (originally) a farm girl, loves to go to this one, and others in the area, to maintain some connection with her roots. Aside from the wild-looking chickens, which are one of my favourites, you have to go to these fairs to enjoy the food, even though your doctor probably goes pale at the thought of what you are consuming.

At every one of these fairs you find a stand selling cotton candy (spun sugar) and other delights. These two young men are busy sampling some of the wares in the blue hour period. I love the gaudy, in-your-face colour of fairs and carnivals, particularly as they seem enhanced at this time of day, just before night falls fully. Gotta love fall fairs. – JW

Taken using a Panasonic Lumix FZ30 at full wide angle (about 35mm equiv in regular 35mm camera terms), program mode, f/2.8, 1/25 sec, ISO80. HDR processing of a single image (hence really just tone mapped) was done with Luminance/Qtpfsgui using setup parameters as indicated below. Additional PP was done using GIMP: slight curves adjust, slight saturation boost (overall), sharpen, add border and scale to 1024 wide for posting here.

What's summer without cotton candy?
Cotton candy, outside, for holiday festivities. Yep, says America to me. Updated for the Pioneer Woman assignment. The photo was taken at the King’s Shops, at the Waikoloa Beach Resort on Hawaii’s Big Island July 2008. The girl was watching the rubber duck race.
