    This is a continuation of the original thread, which I started in June of 2006... Wow, who knew that it would still be active??... thanks for posting all the great photos!

    So to restate some of the ideas...

    THINGS THE AVERAGE TOURIST MAY NOT PHOTOGRAPH

    I imagine that many people who take pictures at Disney theme parks have some common shots: views of an entire building (e.g. the castle, Spaceship Earth, Sorcerer Mickey hat, etc), or characters (e.g. as much of Mickey Mouse as possible). Well, show me what you've done that is more unusual... something that most people may not think of taking.

    some thoughts...

    - common things from uncommon angles
    - common things, but captured in macro mode
    - queue art, zoomed in closely
    - sides of buildings
    - trash cans
    - water fountains
    - lanterns
    - trash (with a good camera and a good eye, I've seen it look like art!)
    - fence posts
    - doors/gates
    - ironwork
    - columns
    - wheels/tires/spokes
    - things thru a fish eye lens
    - the back side of water (oh wait, everyone takes that one)

    Looking forward to seeing some of your creativity... popcorn::

    PLEASE TRY TO KEEP TO THE "UNUSUAL" THEME!


    Thanks! :wave:

    Thanks!

    I took the bottom one several different times (still learning) but the one that I liked best was:

    f/4.7
    1/250sec
    ISO-400
    exposure bias +2.3 step
    and a healthy dose of Photoshop help.

    I'm sure it could have been shot differently and more successfully but it's my first SLR and at the time I had only had it for a few months.

    I know everyone takes the shot of this finale.
    But who else got a shot where the smoke looks like a giant dog head?? :confused3
