Hi there MommaMouse, so good to hear from you. I see you did the Western Magic. I'm going to have to check out your TR as we're sailing the Fantasy...our first Western. Can't wait. As far as my camera goes, I hate to disappoint you, it's just a point and shoot. A Nikon S8100 and I love it. The trick to the photo is what happens after. I use Topaz Adjust and then Topaz Denoise in Photoshop. You can transfer any photo into something very special. I admit I don't work as hard as the wonderful photographers you see on this thread but I have fun. I recently purchased my first DLSR so I have a lot of learning to do before our next trip. Have a magical day.
Linda

I liked your picture a lot, but wondered what it would look like in B&W so to the liberty of changing it:

I like the original but love the B&W version!

Hey you know I never got around to doing the TR :, it actually turned into an eastern because there was a hurricane/tropical storm that made the itinirary change...I just got off the Disney 5 day (Dream) last week too and I 'm contimplated if I'm going to do one since there are several of the dis folks that are doing one..but my kids and I really enjoyed it. I took a lot of pics thats why Ijumped on this thread to see what other ways I've couldve photographed a particular thing...for one I need another lense. one with longer zoom. I had a hard time with the bright sun..over exposure in the background. I tried a bunch of things but it was hard with the kids to take my time playing with the settings. I got some good photos but then when i look at the ones on here i'm like DAAAAAAG my photo of the same thing looks like crap...lol


also I might be doing the oct 2013 fantasy...I have to decide this week.

I can tell you that you are not alone! I feel exactly the same and other's work always looks better than mine - I think at least part of this is that we are all over critical of own work (I know I am).

But I agree with your other point in that this thread is a great source of inspiration. I have got so much planned to do when I go in a couple of week I think I will be up 24/7 snapping new photos.

The worst thing for me is looking at someone else's photo and thinking 'I would NEVER have take that photo; I just wouldn't have thought of it' as techniques you can learn, but creativity is a different matter! And I'm an IT Geek by trade and not many of them are creative (wrong side of brain!).

I'm just glad I have somewhere to share my work at least and I'm grateful for all feedback and for the chance to see how others capture the same subject matter.

I couldn't say it better but bu using these threads, my FLickr threads and other boards I am slowly starting to see some things that a year ago I wouldn't have seen.

Also remember that probably 90% or more of the photos shared have been edited so you are not seeing the SOC results
