Disneyland - Pirates of the Caribbean

Since this is a short week for me with a "research trip" starting on Thursday, I figured this week's theme would be "Disneyland Dark Rides". And in my opinion, there is no dark ride on earth that compares to Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean. Being a WDW guy, I knew what to expect from some of the scenes, but the rest just literally blew me away, and it was clearly superior to its Florida counterpart. Thanks for lookin', and have a great day!

    I can never get a decent shot on the dark rides. So I'll just have to enjoy the good photos other people take.

    I keep hearing how much better the Disneyland version is, but I will not watch any videos in the hopes of getting out there soon and getting to experience it. Great shot.
  • Adam Fink PRO 3y

    Perfect color and exposure here. This is my favorite scene in POTC and if I remember right, it isn't in the WDW version. Being a Disneyland guy, i cried a little when I experienced POTC at WDW.

    Hey, if anyone wants blurry shots of this guy I've got about a trillion of them for sale :(

    This is a great scene, and my hat is off to you for nailing it perfectly. That is some wicked, voodoo magic you are using to get such a crisp, sharp shot.
  • James 3y

    Great grab on this. POTC in Anaheim is probably THE definitive theme park ride to this day. A true achievement.
  • Ben PRO 3y

    Wow, that's an amazing shot. I cannot believe it's so crisp! I love how all the gold sparkles and the green on the skull really brings an eerie air to the picture.
  • Steve 3y

    I do wish the WDW version had scenes like ths. Great shot!
  • Jeff Krause PRO 3y

    Good sharp capture. Yes, I too am jealous of all photos of the Disneyland version.
  • Jeff Hamm 3y

    I'll tell you, POTC, HM, and the Court of Angels are TOPS on my list of things I want to see at DLR when I hopefully go next year. :) Great shot!
  • Carl Ruegg 3y

    Wonderful shot! The detail and color really pop out!
  • Andreea Radu PRO 3y

    Too cool!!!! How did you do this????
  • Andrew Kirby PRO 3y

    Amazingly sharp! POTC is one of those rides that I always have to do when I visit Disneyland, it's THE Disney dark ride for me.
  • Doug PRO 3y

    Dark ride awesomeness with superb color and sharpness qualities.
  • Dan Huntley PRO 3y

    Wonderful sharpness - Great job!
  • Gary Burke PRO 3y

    Awesome job on this! I agree with you.. the Disneyland version of the Pirates ride blows away the WDW version!
  • William McIntosh PRO 3y

    Nice job controlling the traditional blow out spots and keeping the details. Excellent job on this!
  • Brett Kiger PRO 3y

    Hands down, without a question better at DLR! I don't think there is even a debate to be had, I think it's just a unanimous decision... :) I know I'll be bummed the first time I get back to the WDW version, but it's still pretty good too!
