I originally had a different shot in mind for this location but thanks to the eternal construction walls of the Magic Kingdom I had to seek out a different shot than what I originally had in mind. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise as I ended up really loving the shot I wound up with. I did this shot with the Nikon 70-200 2.8 and did 2 different framings from this same spot. I wasn’t 100% happy with either when I took a better look at full size but was able to then combine those 2 shots into one to get a framing I am more than happy with. I also did focus stacking for this shot as the depth of field was very narrow at F3.2 and 75mm. I chose this method as opposed to shooting with a larger depth of field to get the wonderful creamy bokeh that the 70-200 puts out. I find the bokeh from this area generally very interesting too so it’s really great to play around with different angles in this area. Now I just have to wait for the next trip and hope that the seemingly endless construction around Cinderella Castle is finally completed so I can try out the shot I originally had in mind.
