Signature Shot - Dumbo the Flying Elephant
Walt Disney World Resort
This is one shot that looked a lot better in my head than the end result. After seeing shots from a similar perspective (if memory serves me correctly) albeit wider, from Joe and Jeff, I got the idea to go for a 200mm shot of Dumbo from the same perspective, which should have 'pulled' the Castle closer (the top right image in this article sort of demonstrates this effect for those unfamiliar--although in photography it's not called "dolly zoom") giving Dumbo some nice "Castle bokeh" filling the frame behind him.
A couple things prevented the shot from looking as good as I would've liked: 1) I chose to do it on an overcast afternoon, rather than a morning, causing the lighting to suck; 2) my 18-200mm lens is no 70-200 f/2.8, and; 3) stemming from #2, the Castle bokeh is more like slightly out of focus Castle.
Oh well, I guess this means it's time to buy a 70-200 f/2.8!
