Still Using HDR at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Posted on
Even with today’s software tools like MacPhun’s Intensify, I still find taking a set of photographs to create High Dynamic Range or HDR images worth my time in the field and in the digital dark room. With my cameras from Nikon, it is easy to create a bracketed set of image from -2 to +2 … Continue reading "Still Using HDR at Disney’s Animal Kingdom"

Rivers of Light at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Posted on
I enjoyed Rivers of Light at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. It is not a show with a lot of “Wow” factor like a fireworks show. The music, floats and use of projections on water is very soothing. I will say my experience in watching it was not enjoyable. I saw Rivers of Light in its third … Continue reading "Rivers of Light at Disney’s Animal Kingdom"

Bibbity Bobbity Boo…Crane Be Gone!

Posted on
A while back I was complaining about a maintenance crane being used on my recent trip to the Magic Kingdom. I mentioned I could remove the crane using software. This does take added time so I do not like to do it often. Later in the day, I caught the end of the new Mickey’s … Continue reading "Bibbity Bobbity Boo…Crane Be Gone!"
