Disney's Hollywood Studios

Twilight Zone Tower of Terror - HDR

October 2009

Something tells me you're not unlocking this door with the key of imagination. After the recent success of other Flickr contacts at posting their shots from the Studios, I decided to try my hand at a Tower of Terror shot for today.


I spent a lot of time back in this area on our recent trip. Part of it may have been me scraping off the rust, but I wasn't pleased with most of these shots. I don't think I made the most of the UWA, and I wish I had done some things differently. I like this shot alright, but I feel it doesn't bring anything new to the table (plus there's all sorts of odd unintentional distortion in it).


This shot is a two exposure HDR merged in Photoshop CS3 with the layers masked back on top of the HDR, and some more stuff done to it. No tone mapping was performed. Much time was spent making the saturation correct in the Tower.


If, like me, you're a fan of both Christmas and the Twilight Zone, be sure to check out Hallmark's new Twilight Zone Christmas ornament. It's awesome!
