Disneyland - The Domineering Castle?

One thing I knew going into the Disneyland trip was that Sleeping Beauty Castle is weak looking. Short and stout, it lacks the grandeur and visual dominance of Cinderella Castle. After seeing it in person I was even more disappointed (I hate when people raise the question "Would Walt Do?" when confronted with something they don't like about the contemporary parks, but I have to wonder whether he would have had this castle razed for something more 'epic' upon the completion of WDW, were he alive).


Anyway, given the stature of Sleeping Beauty Castle, one of my goals was to utilize the UWA lens to make it seem more grand. I thought this shot did a decent job of that...even though I almost fell into the moat due to leaning over that railing so far!
