So this is the first year of the new decorations on Main Street USA and I must say I think its an improvement. Keeping the view of the Castle unobstructed is a huge plus in my opinion and the more subtle decoration adds just the right touch of color to the scene. Enjoy.
I’ve taken probably more pics of the China pavilion than any other pavilion in the World Showcase probably 2 fold. Hence the title “China Again”. What keeps me coming back is the many different angles you can shoot the temple from. And each one has great foreground interest. You’ve got lush greenery, interesting rocks and boulders, the beautiful reflecting ponds. It makes it really hard to go wrong no matter what angle you shoot from. Enjoy.
I’ve done several shots in the Germany pavilion now but never one looking head on at the horseman. I think it’s an interesting angle and the flowers at the bottom help frame the scene nicely. As for the title of the photo, I think it’s kinda funny, though accurate.
P.S. Don’t forget my Lightroom presets are on sale for $2.99 through the end of the year at https://www.thetimethespace.com/shop
This is always a fun shot to get if you have time, but add in the moon and how can you not stop to take it? The Dreamlights really help put the icing on the photo here, and lucky for me, this was the first night they were lit and just after the lighting ceremony! Talk about perfect timing.
I came here to shoot the waterfalls but on the approach this shot caught my eye. Looking through the trees to the waterfall as the light beamed down reminded me of something out of a fairytale.
I went to Cloudland Canyon State Park to shoot the waterfalls but ended up focusing a lot on Daniel Creek that the falls flow in to. I tried to mix it up with my 70-200 2.8 and ended up getting some of my favorite shots from the trip with it. Enjoy.
One of the things I really love about photography is no matter how many times you photograph a scene it’s always different. I’ve done this scene many times now at different times of the day and night but was never fortunate enough for a really great sunset. Well the sky certainly delivered this time around to give me something to work with and this is easily my favorite shot I’ve done of this scene. I hope you enjoy it too and thanks for looking!
When I was setting up for this shot I originally had the camera leveled but looking through the viewfinder it felt a bit static so I started playing around with the angle a bit. I think this made the shot a bit more dynamic and interesting. This little area I think is great for an “empty park shot” since it gives it that feel of a late night city street in France. Well, to me anyway. Enjoy.
So I’ll just mention right off the bat yes the flag pole is down, and no I didn’t get this shot perfectly center. I’ll blame that on the fact I was under duress from the security guy yelling at me from down below that I had to leave just as I had set down the tripod. I made a quick adjustment and fired off a very quick 3 shot bracket and this is what I have to show for it. Even slightly off center I can’t really be unhappy with the shot though as I’m very happy with how it turned out. The unobstructed view of the Castle lit up with the dreamlights is certainly something special. Enjoy!
Pizza Planet in Hollywood Studios is one of those things that could have been really great but ended up being a missed opportunity in my opinion. Still, I didn’t have a shot of the exterior facade and I do think the logo and rocket ship look kinda cool so here you have it. Not much else to say about this one.
