It really is unfortunate that The Wonders of Life pavilion has become from what it once was. Perhaps one day this pavilion (along with some others) will get the much needed makeover they need to help revitalize Epcot once again.

Still, I’m thankful for the opportunity to photograph the pavilion all lit up during the Food & Wine Festival. Given the time and lack of anything to do in the pavilion at this time of day it was an easy shot to get with no waiting on people. It was however very very dark in the water feature calling for a 60 second exposure to really light it up. Unfortunately the planters were spinning so I had to pull those from a slower exposure to get one with minimal motion but still lit well enough for the scene I was trying to convey. I spent quite a bit of additional time on blending work for this photo as I wanted the motion of the clouds but the single point non trailed stars. I spent probably triple my usual time on this photo but I think the end result is worth it. This was once again shot with the Nikon 14-24 2.8.
