Thanks! It's not HDR actually. It's a 36 second exposure of the finale using a 3 stop ND filter. Post processing was done using Nik Color Efex Pro filters in PS CS6.

Thank you! The only thing that bothers me is that I wish there was more wind to blow the smoke away. That night, everything just kind of sat there.

It's not a purse, it's called a satchel. Indiana Jones wears one.

This was shot with the Nikon D600 and the Tokina 11-16mm at 16mm. Exposure was 27 seconds f/11 with a neutral density 0.9 (3 stop) filter. The tripod was right next to the Partners statue, and the height maxed out to get over people's heads. Final image was cropped at bit, as I was preparing for the Hallowishes perimeter fireworks.

Here is the uncropped 16mm, Hallowishes finale with the perimeter fireworks. There wasn't much wind to blow the smoke away.
16mm 5.6 seconds f/11 ND0.9 (3 stop) filter

I actually like the smoke for Hallowishes. Adds an eerie feel.

This is just a gorgeous shot. Thanks for sharing your setup!

Just curious. How tall is your tripod fully extended?

Thanks for the compliments!
I'm using the Manfrotto 055CXPRO4. It extends to 5'7" tall. The head is 5 inches, and the battery grip is another 2 inches. So the lens would be just over 6 feet (~1.8 meters)

The best part is that it folds to 21.5 inches, so it fits into a locker at Magic Kingdom, although diagonally in it. At the time, it was the tallest tripod that would fit into a MK locker. Yup, I found the dimensions somewhere, then calculated the diagonal distance, and chose it for a Disney purpose. I also wanted carbon fiber, so that it is light and strong.

I love the uncropped photo, too! The smoke makes the castle look so ominous, it's great!

How early did you get there to save your spot?

Thank you!

We scoped out the spot about an hour before. My fiance sat at the spot while I headed back to the front of the park to get the tripod from the locker.

Just be aware, it is an extremely crowded area. People/kids will bump into your tripod. I carry a backpack and clip it to the bottom of the tripod, so the added weight adds a bit more stability. And so kids don't try to go under it.
