The winner for this week's SunShots series "Carnival" is Laura Crovo for her photo of her son and a friend's daughter on the flying elephant ride at the Maryland State Fair. The picture was taken with an iPhone 4s. "It was low-light, no flash and I used the auto-focus feature to try to get the kids in focus leaving the background blurred. And, then I just kept clicking until I got it," writes Crovo. Here is a critique by senior photo editor Jerry Jackson: "This was a very low percentage shot. Shooting a moving object in low light with a cell phone camera generally doesn't produce good results. I am glad that the photographer kept trying. The image really captures the the motion and flavor of the fair."
