Hall of Presidents Lobby in the Magic Kingdom

Hall of Presidents' lobby in Liberty Square at the Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida

The above photo took two years to get it right. The first time I attempted this photo, I did not notice the release cable was in the corner of the frame. The railing surrounding The Great Seal of the United States confounded any skill I had in removing the cable without ruining the image. Last December, when I again visited the Hall of Presidents in the Magic Kingdom, I had my new Fisheye lens which captured even more of the lobby than the wide angle lens I used previously. As luck with have it, the last show of the night was about to start. I waited for everyone to exit the lobby and took this photo.

A patriotic scene for the Disney Pic of the Week for the Magic Kingdom.
