Architecture of Life – Wonders of Life Pavilion

Every time I see the Wonders of Life pavilion it pains me to think what Disney has done to it. First they make it a seasonal only pavilion before completely abandoning it and using it as a show floor for various events. Such a shame. Instead of spending money ripping out a perfectly fine ride like the Maelstrom to replace it with more Frozen how about spending the money to revive an entire Pavilion which would certainly help spread out crowds and add capacity.

Shooting & Editing Architecture of Life – Wonders of Life Pavilion

This was shot with the Nikon D810 and Nikon 14-24 2.8. I really loved the way architecture looked here looking back out of the pavilion. I tried a couple different angles but I think this was my favorite result. I’m not sure how interesting this will be to non-Disney but I really enjoy it. Processing was very simple for this shot. I used a single base layer and an underexposure which I masked in only the brightest highlights using a luminosity mask. I did a color balance adjustment and applied Nik Color Efex Pro Contrast. I did some light cleanup with the healing brush, sharpened and that was it.
