I am very happy to note that the image of the Coney Island Wonder Wheel was featured in the Under the Hat Photo Magazine, as one of the fifty images/photographers selected - 50 Photographers to Watch in 2013. Same image has just won First Place at an FAA contest on Coney Island, which ended in March 2013.
Wonder Wheel is a 45.7-metre (150 ft) tall eccentric Ferris wheel located at Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park, Coney Island, in southernmost Brooklyn, New York City, USA.
Eccentric wheels differ from conventional Ferris wheels in that some of the passenger cars are not fixed directly to the rim of the wheel, but instead slide on rails between the hub and the rim as the wheel rotates

Built in 1920 by the Eccentric Ferris Wheel Company, Wonder Wheel has 24 fully enclosed passenger cars, each able to carry 6 people, giving a total capacity of 144 passengers. 16 of the cars slide inward and outward as the wheel rotates, the remainder are fixed to the rim.
