    PART I - Carousel is Back and Shots From Around The DLR


    First of all, I just picked up yet another lens....because...um... I needed it for my job. Yeah...that's it. My job. I needed to take shots in a dark theater so I just HAD to run out and buy a Nikkor 50mm 1.4 lens. It's simply a coincidence that it would also come in handy for rides at...oh....say.....Disneyland. :whistling: So I'll be posting a few from POTC and HM below.

    Got the two Double Doubles and that side of animal fries with extra sauce? And that package of double stuffed oreos? Paramedics standing by for that heart attack?

    Then on with the update!

    After that unexpected refurb, the Carousel is indeed back in action...





    And the horses look amazing....















    This shot was inspired by Fishbulb....





    If it's a new month, the Disney landscapers will have new flowers in Disneyland. On Monday, the flowers around town square looked like this...





    This morning I found these....




    They haven't bloomed yet, but I was amazed that they got these in so quickly.


    Here's a few more panoramas/merged shots that I took today and a couple from last Monday...





    Can you find Bob Gurr's window?




















    Some of my shots in this thread will also be from last Sunday when I actually took my kids with me for the first time in a couple months...





    Even though they're not wild about having their picture taken...




    Can you tell which one is missing the Davidson/Kansas game?

    Beautiful so far! Looking GREATLY forward to seeing what you can do with the f/1.4 lens--my 50mm is only f/1.8, and then my other two lenses are a measly f/2.4. Anyway, should be fun to see!

        Wow, great pics. MC is so blessed with such great photographers. Can't wait to see the rest.
        Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

          Ok... so thats a very nice start by the way but... thats it?? Wheres the rest of the pictures?! Just because it was almost 1 AM when you started this, is no excuse not to finish! After all, who needs sleep! You can sleep at work on Monday! Hand out packets of word searches to the students and tell them you'll be in your office doing "research" for something and take a nap then!!

            Well done, the photos look great. And the park looks to be in great shape as well.

                  Part II - POTC and HM with the new lens

                  I thought I would start with this one as I think it's my favorite...





                  As I share these, I have to admit that I'm still dealing with some significant focus issues in the dark. I always turn off my focus assist light, but trying to manually focus these is a pain in the dark. I'm sure there's a way to do this consistently, but I haven't quite figured it out yet. So be ye warned. Some of these are a little soft.

                  So...on we go with POTC first:

                  "...and remember: No flash pictures please. Now OFF with ye..."




                  "Psst. Avast there."





                  I was going for a telescope effect with this...




                  And I've been waiting for an excuse to try this with photoshop. Now seemed like a good time.












                  I've never been able to get Barbosa before...





                  WE WANTS THE REDHEAD!





                  WE WANTS THE PIRATE WITH THE EYE LINER!
