Expedition Everest Sunset (37 Second Exposure - 9 Stop ND Filter)

    Newer Older

    We spent more time than ever before in Disney's Animal Kingdom on our recent trip, and I got more "good" photos at DAK than on all of our other previous trips combined. I loved using the ND filter in Asia, where the moving flags added a unique touch to the shot.

    This week on DisneyTouristBlog.com we started our February 2012 trip report and celebrated the 1-year anniversary of the site.

      Very nice as always. I love the ghostly figures on the right. Adds to the mystique.

      Great shot! I love the movement of the banners and the ghosting people.

      I think the moving banners make it so the moving crowds aren't the first thing you notice. Sweet Lighting too.

      Looks really good. I'm a fan of the blurred flags and other environmental features when doing daytime long-exposure. I'm not a big fan of the ghost crowd, but I don't think you were trying for that part.

      I'm not exactly sure where I stand on the people. I normally don't like photos with haphazard crowds unless they are really unnoticeable (i.e. a shot from the train station zoomed to the Castle where all you can see are dots of heads). The crowd here isn't distinct, but those green shirts are a bit distracting. Had I gone longer with the exposure and totally blurred out the crowd, I'm sure some would've said it looked inauthentic because it lacked humanity, which is always present during the day at WDW.
