I spent the better part of 19 days (less almost half of them when I was too sick to know what I was doing!) last month trying to get different photos to mix in with the typical vacation shots. It's amazing what you notice when you want to!

I love that one of Tink you posted. That is so simple yet so different

Thanks again. Yep, I think you gotta shoot the details. That's part of your overall experience. Think like a coffee table book.

Do you know that is one sentence that stuck in my mind from your eBook! I can honestly say it changed the way I looked at things. Aside from the typical vacation snapshots of my DD, more than half of my photos are of details. Your eBook is BRILLIANT!!

Is this thread for WDW pics only or can DLR pics be added?


Radiator Springs Racers, Disney California Adventure.
this is the view when entering Cars land from the Pacific Pier in DCA.

Yes...the pic was taken from the queue. But...I think you are on to something. We both spend a lot of time looking up. LOL

I actually have that thread bookmarked. Only problem is I found it so far in that I'll never get through them all.

Totally cool shots! Especially love the Sorcerer's Hat pic. I have Topaz Adjust...I'll have to play around with that. Thanks.

Great shots. I'll have to remember to take some "in ride" shots. What type of camera did you shoot these with? I'm always scared to take my DSLR out on rides like these.

I guess I will be adding Star Wars Weekends to my list of "times to go". I'm sure my Star Wars obsessed son won't object. Great shot BTW!

By all means...of course DLR pics are welcome!

I have never been to DLR but hope to make it there one day as well. Might as well start compiling my list of shots to take there as well.

I absolutely LOVE your shot. Nice work!

That's inside the Wilderness Lodge. I found it during a Christmas stay there. It's a bit off the main hall, but it's a nice, quiet place to relax away from all the noise in the main lodge. This was in the Villas section.

Both pictures were taken with Pentax k5 w/grip & Sigma 24-70 f/2.8. I take all my gear on all the rides that I can. On water rides I put my bag in a trash bag. I keep my camera out. Its water resistance and I have a lens that water resistance also.

I have not yet been to the Wilderness Lodge. I am hoping to do a little resort hopping on my next trip...this place looks spectacular.

Just wanted to say that I found your blog and your work is AMAZING! Words can't begin to describe....WOW! I just downloaded your Capture the Magic eBook. I can't wait to read it.
