Come here, boy... Want a nice, juicy bone?

Since we're on the subject of dark rides, here is one of my favorite scenes to shoot. I've had success getting a sharp shot on the WDW version before, but I've always struggled with the color. This seems to be about the closest I've been so far. I messed with tons of sliders in LR and did a little PS work to come up with this, and I think it took about two hours. I hardly remember what I did after all that tweaking.


That being said, not only do I much prefer the Disneyland version of this attraction, I also prefer the DLR lighting. The WDW lighting is just too red/orange. The DLR version still gives a nice ambiance while on the attraction, and it photographs infinitely better. I don't want an overall of the WDW ride, but can we get some better lighting?
