Spaceship Earth

EPCOT at Walt Disney World is quite likely the most fabulous man-made tourist attraction on the planet. The park is dominated by this 18 story high dome which houses the Spaceship Earth exhibit. The attractions around this area are pretty typical Disney (i.e. superb examples of both engineering, entertainment and sheer fun) but I actually preter the World Showcase section of the park which highlights a dozen or so different countries with examples of their architecture, "cast members" from the countries and gift shops stocking typical arts, crafts and foods from those countries (the UK has Tunnock's Caramel Wafers and real KitKats so I reckon it's pretty authentic).

 

This shot is a 7 exposure HDR shot handheld, merged in Photoshop, tone mapped in Photomatix then tweaked to its final state in Lightroom.

 

I would greatly appreciate your vote in the 2010 Photoblog Awards. Thanks!
