Pixie Hollow Garden Path HDR Disneyland California
This picture was published in the Orange County Register on June 9, 2012.
Just some of the flowers outside of Pixie Hollow. The cast member that was stationed at the entrance seemed concerned that I was taking a bunch of pictures outside and that I didn't want to see Tinkerbell. She was having a difficult time understanding I was more interested in taking landscape photos than getting my picture taken with Tinkerbell.
On the technical side this was a hand held a three exposure 4EV spread run through the software three times (tone mapped, fused, fused again with less midtones and more saturation). Then everything was blended with layers and masks in Photoshop. I used my 18-250mm zoom for this shot at 18mm where it's performance is lacking.
