Very creative...lots of imagination and forethought went into these. I guess being a local, it's probably easier to imagine what you want to capture beforehand.

Well, actually, the last time I went there was in 1989. :)
I knew the general layout of the place but not a lot more. I just walked around and shot what came to my mind as to what would be an interesting shot.

Oh, just pick a slow shutter speed like 1/15 in Tv mode, hold the camera very still, then zoom back as you take the picture. The center should be in focus while the other parts of the image "zooms" out.
Here is another example

Nice trick to do once in a while and saves many minutes of photoshopping and having it almost look as good.

Wish I could go for the sake of pics and without a non-pic-interested family in tow. :( You got some nice stuff. :)

Great Job.

I looked at the gallery link. I thought they were all terrific also. I have a little question, there seems to be on a lot of your photos a general lack of sharpness at the edges. I also found them very contrasty. This could be due to the compression needed or was this intended? Anyway, I love the photos and thought they make great commercial images, but, the sharpness could be a problem.

I felt I have now been to Disneyland as your pics showed a great story.

I was recently down there shooting as well, about a week ago. Tell me though, what lens did you use to shoot inside the Pirates of the Caribbean?

Hey, thanks for looking. I actually burn in the edges to make vignetting in photoshop, so that maybe the thing you are seeing at the corners. It may also be the depth of focus as that may be throwing the corners out of focus as well. I do make small versions for uploading so that maybe a part of the problem as well. The uploaded large ones are about 700kb vs original 6MB or so.

As for the contrast, yeah, I'm right now into super saturated colors with lots of contrast. Just my taste/style I guess. :)

I used a sigma 28mm f1.8 on a 30D, M mode 1/10 sec, f1.8, ISO 1600, no flash (of course). I used MF for really dark place and AF when there was enough lighting as the Sigma hunts in low light.
