Weekly Disney

This photo was taken just before the other “balloons in front of BAH” shot that is my 8th most interesting photo, according to Flickr. The other shot was taken a few steps closer to the balloons and I think, overall is probably the better picture. I previously overlooked this photo as it was tremendously underexposed. After some HDR magic I was able to bring up the levels high enough without producing too much noise. I also slightly changed the color of the sky using the channel mixer. Hope you like it!


Disney question of the week: All things considered, what's your favorite Disney Park to photograph (any park, anywhere in the world)? Leave your responses in the comments below!



Disney's Hollywood Studios, Walt Disney World


Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you're having a great day!

    Wow, I tried to do some sunset baloon photos and nothing I took looks this good. But to youre question, having grown up in So Cal I would have to say Disneyland however I do like EPCOT for all the architecture.
  • Doug 5y

    Love the lighting and all the colors in this shot! Very well taken!
    My favorite park to photograph is EPCOT. A very close second is Animal Kingdom. Both are photo target rich!
  • Karon Flage 5y

    Love the colors in this.

    My favorite park to photograph is Animal Kingdom. However I'm spending a few days at Disney Paris in December so that could change very soon.

    The colors in this shot are just stunning! Great clarity and composition as well. I like the palm trees and tower in the background -- I don't find them distracting at all.

    Favorite park to photograph? Tokyo DisneySea is just amazing, as is Tokyo Disneyland. Of course I've only been to each of them once, so my opinion might change with repeated visits, but the creativity in TDS and level of fine detail in both is really phenomenal.

    This makes me so happy. ... gonna have to say Epcot. I've only been to DisneyWorld in Orlando. Would gladly head elsewhere if given the time and money! I have a hard time getting enough Disney.
  • Jamee C 5y

    EPCOT. Hands down. No contest.

    Stunner of shot!
  • Scott Smith 5y

    Beautiful capture!!!!!!

    And I have to say that EPCOT is probably my favorite park to shoot. It's great to travel "The World".

    Seen in my contacts' photos. (?)

    love love love the colors! You did such a great job processing this.

    My favorite park to photo-attack is probably EPCOT, but that could be because I just haven't had a proper chance to since getting my d90. I can't wait to get a shot at it.

    I just spent 5 minutes on Bing trying to figure out what the building is on the left. I see it now. Thanks for the lesson in forced perspective. :-)
  • Don Sullivan 5y

    Fantastic shot and brilliant treatment.

    As for favorite to shoot, if I can choose anywhere I'd have to go with Disneyland Paris.
