    Abomibot's Summer 2010 Super Ultra Mega Photo-Heavy WDW Trip Report

    My partner and I went to Orlando this year in June for our first-ever Gay Days trip. We had an awesome time but I must admit I much prefer Florida during the other three seasons. We ironically both stayed far longer and did far less than ever before because of the heat and subsequent need for daily, hours-long swimming pool sojourns.

    Here are some of our favorite photo from the trip!

    Part One

    We spent our first few days in Celebration:























    And enjoyed our first few evenings at Downtown Disney:





































    Next up, the Grand Floridan and Magic Kingdom by day...

    Thanks, Nicole! Much appreciated!

    We fell in love with Celebration, geomorph... Kissimmee is very touristy and densely developed and then you turn towards Celebration, drive into town and you're inside this nicely designed, peaceful bubble.

    Re: Abomibot's Summer 2010 Super Ultra Mega Photo-Heavy WDW Trip Report

    Thanks, folks!

    To answer Ryan and Izzy's replies, we have a Nikon d5000. We have three lenses, an all purpose 70mm-200mm zoom, a 10mm-24mm wide angle zoom and a 50mm prime lens with an f1.4 which can basically take pics in the freaking dark.

    We shoot in RAW format and that's where some of the color comes from. There's enough dynamic range hidden in the shadows that we can really pump up the detail. We get a bit of an HDR type effect this way - but out of just a single exposure per image. You can see a little bit of a dark halo here and there from the tweaks which is typical of amateur HDR processing. But I don't mind it in exchange for the color range we get. Plus, tone mapping without getting the dark halos takes way too much time for my short attention span.

    All but one of those really gorgeous Haunted Mansion exteriors were taken with the 50mm prime. We're finding the extra oomph you get with a prime lens is totally worth the inconvenience of not having a zoom on the camera all the time. We're headed to DLR in October and I'm thinking about heading out for a whole day with nothing but this lens just as an experiment.
