I know, I know... why post this picture when Matt P, Jeff B and Todd H already nailed it and posted their versions, right? Well, I don't know, I just felt good about finally getting this shot. I tried several times both in WDW and DL and for some reason could not get this guy properly focused. In fact, I was able to nail down a few dark ride photos (except for that darn Peter Pan's Flight) that I have failed in the past... Also, I rediscovered Capture NX and used it exclusively (except final resizing and sharpening for Flickr posting) to edit this picture. I bought the program when I bought the D300 and never really got the hang of it. After taking a deeper look into it I can't believe I haven't been using this program all along! Don't get me wrong, I still like my Paint Shop Pro, but at least for RAW editing and converting to tiff, Capture NX works brilliantly with .NEF files! I also like that I can save a compressed copy of the edited .NEF file instead of saving the full size uncompressed 16 or 8 bit .tiff like I was doing before. This cuts the file size down tremendously and allows me to reopen the .NEF file with Capture NX so that I can have access to the full size original edit in the future if I need to. Of course, I always retain the original untouched RAW (.NEF) file just in case.

Pirates of the Caribbean
Walt Disney World Resort
Bay Lake, Florida
On October 13, 2007, Disney released "A Parrot's Life for Me!", an 11-1/2" sculpture that was the 5th release in a Pirates of the Caribbean Series, sculpted by Ruben Procopio. It had an SRP of $250.00. Oddly enough, the foot was not dirty like on the ride.
