Harambe Lights

March 25, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Africa, Animal Kingdom, Walt Disney World

If it hasn't become obvious maybe I should explain that I am on the downward slide toward next trip to Disney.  Only 35 more days!  As typically happens with me, there is an increase in postings of my Disney images.  I like reviewing what I have done on previous trips and try to plan a little of what I would like to capture while I am back home!  So I guess I should apologize now for the content during the next five weeks!  LOL

I have captured this view in the Africa area of the park numerous times.  This is from the bridge over the Discovery River as you enter the African village of Harambe.  This is looking toward the Harambe port.  Normally I am photographing this at sunrise, or early morning, and have not been able to capture a good sunset image.  I originally planned this as an HDR image, capturing a four bracket set, but the software had issues with the bright sky behind the trees.  It was creating some off color artifacts that I did not want to deal with.  Upon closer review of -1 exposure image I felt there was plenty of detail in both the highlights and shadows for me to work with.  

I have been using the new, to PC anyway, Luminar program from Skylum Software to post-process my images.  It has allowed me at lot more creative control and helped me improve the look of my images.  If you are looking for a relatively inexpensive program to process your images, I would highly recommend Luminar.  There is a lot of tutorials online and a growing amount of presets available for this program.  Definitely worth a look...

Welcome to my little corner of the internet where I will be chronicling my exploration into my photography obsession. I do not have a specific topic or style so the posts will be eclectic and random. I hope that as this site grows you will see improvements in both my photography and my writing.

Take a look around and hopefully you'll find something interesting. Feel free to borrow any image you like as long as it is used for personal use and not for a commercial endeavor. I would hope you respect my creativity and will not alter the image in any way. If you do find something you wish to use, please include a link back to my blog with appropriate credit. Thanks!
