A little circus went to our village. Here is a night picture.

Although, since you asked for it (indirectly, by posting it in the critique forum)...
The first thing I would have done is crop the picture slightly so that the light on the right side disappears...
you might still get some of the effects of that light, but at least it wouldn't be that noticeable.
The powerlines also "get in the way" although they might be harder to avoid getting in there...
Still, wish I took that picture :)

I agree with Geir, especially about the light at the right. It does not add much content. I am curious as to your shooting settings, related to another thread on fireworks and night photography.

Thanks for the response
I had a problem with the very ligth tent in left side - it far to light - you can`t see the names of the tent.
You are right about the powerlines, I knew that but they were hard to avoid.
You can see the shooting settings here ---> http://www.visuelweb.dk/galleri.htm

First - nice exposure. You retained the colours well despite there being such a large range of tonal values.
My main suggestion would also be to zoom in on the subject, but I'd like to get way more savage with the crop tool! Put the hub of the wheel on one of the rule-of-thirds intersection points and highlight the great geometry.
Those power lines can be made to disappear with a little clone tool work. It's tedious, but worth the image improvement.
Forgive my audacity, but I thought I'd try out my own suggestions - here is my reworked version. I spent a couple of minutes cloning out the easy bit of the power lines, ran a smoothing filter to remove some of the noise in the dark sky, and added a tiny amount of unsharp mask to counteract the fuzziness introduced by the smoothing.
Another suggestion - for a different kind of picture, crank down the aperture and let the shutter speed head into the two-second range. Wait for the wheel to spin up to full speed and capture the streaks of light.
