    Photomatt Pics - WDW MK and ST 12.13.07 thru 12.16.07

    Howdy.

    This is my first post with my pictures being hosted by smugmug, so please be patient if there are any problems.

    On 12/12 a co-worker from the Atlanta office called me and told me he was coming to Orlando with his family. He was actually in the car when he called. I thanked him for giving me so much notice.

    Anyways, we went to the MVMCP on the 13th and I took a few pictures. I actually rode rides and did the typical guest things, so I don't have too many pictures from the 13th. I am going back to the MK again today, the 15th, to take more pictures. I will go to DHS on Sunday night. Then, on Monday, my 17-55 f/2.8 DX lens will go up for sale as I begin to make the transition to non-DX lenses. So, for about two or three weeks I will only have my 50mm f/1.4 which does not autofocus properly, which means my photo posts might be limited.

    Since all of the pictures I took that day can be found on my smugmug site, I will not post the exposure information for each picture here.


    I like the clouds. It was a pretty day, but still warm and humid.





    As I entered the park I was surprised at how empty and calm it felt. It really was not empty, but the park had a surprisingly calm feel. It was odd. I don't know how to explain it better.





    Buzz looks REALLY determined!






    The ride stopped here, so I was able to take a pretty clear shot.
















    I did not bring my tripod, so this picture was taken without one.










    This is my favorite lighting scheme.







    Not done yet...

    That's it for the 13th.

    Lots more to come in the next few days.

    I like the Small World pics, I don't know if I've ever really tried to take photos inside there before. I also like the purple/pink color scheme best after dark. Before dark, I like the colors I have in my photo below (it looks really pretty on the blue sky).

    No tripod!?! Great job steadying!

    Howdy again.

    I just got back home from another night at the MK. Here's a helpful hint to those who might be interested. Do NOT try to enter the park between 6 and 8 pm when it is open until midnight only once a week. It was a zoo!

    Anyways, here are a few pictures I really like from tonight. I will get the rest posted ASAP.

    This picture was taken at 12:05 a.m. During the closing announcement they will have a small lighting show on the castle. I was ready for it this time, finally!

    ohhh the tree through the empty castle walkway is awsome!!! can't wait to see more. and the pink and blue castle does remind me of the sugarplum fairy castle.

    I LOVE the photo of the walkway in Cindy's castle, simply gorgeous.

    Thanks so much for sharing the photos!

    More pics from the 15th...



















































    For some reason I really love this shot. I didn't plan on it, I just pointed my camera and clicked.





    Castle-palooza is next...

    If you like castle shots this next segment will be heaven.

    Here are some of the many colors of Cinderella's Castle. I have 5 different exposures (at least) of each color, so check out my smugmug gallery if you would like.











    The next sequence is from the closing announcement. Some people call it the "Goodnight Kiss", so check out YouTube if you want video.














    Still uploading...

    I love the pumpkin coaches. I have never noticed them before. Normally this walkway is always closed off because of the shows. They give me an idea for a picture. I'm going to have to go back now and see if I can do it.




    More to come, including POTC and SpectroMagic.

    This is fantastic, especially since it was fairly random. Thanks for sharing these.
