This is one of my favorite images I’ve edited from this past trip. When I started working on this shot I really wanted it to look and feel like you are in Gaston’s Tavern, not some themed quick service restaurant in a theme park. While this area looks very nice, the lighting in person leaves much to be desired with the bright Florida sunshine spilling in. As a friend of mine mentioned, in the movie, it’s cold and snowy outside Gaston’s Tavern. The inside should be warm and welcoming. I played off of this idea to really warm the lighting in this scene, and along with a few other fixes and tweaks really try to make Gaston’s Tavern a real place. I hope I succeeded and I’d love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for looking.
