I would like to start off by posting an UNOFFICIAL picture I took of the group in front of the castle.
I would have continued taking pictures, trying to get a perfect shot, except that a certain well known MC'er insisted that I stop taking pictures. This person is obviously not in the picture since they were standing next to me telling me that I needed to stop immediately. Apparently it was decided that the "official" picture would be taken by a PhotoPass CM. I have no issues with this decision at all, but I am well aware of the quality of pictures that they take sometimes. I was only trying to guarantee that there would be at least a few good pictures, but in order to avoid conflict I stopped.
I would like to present to you all of the pictures that the PhotoPass CM took with my camera. I don't think I was wrong to want to do this myself. Unfortunately I was not allowed to and here is the result.
Again, the pictures that follow were all taken by a PhotoPass CM with my camera.
I don't think that all of the pictures are bad, but how hard is it to get the whole castle in the picture? Also, the lighting at the time was very tricky and multiple exposures with different settings would have helped. Again, I think it is a great idea to have some pictures available through PhotoPass, but not allowing me to take more pictures was wrong.
I have lots more pics to post but they will have to wait until this evening. I also plan on going through the few pics I was able to take of the whole group and editing them just a little to make them as perfect as possible. They will be available for download in their full 4MB size, for free of course, once they are ready.
