Smokey Castle by AreteEirene Smokey Castle by AreteEirene
My aunt was looking at our pictures of Cinderella castle from our last trip, and requested a print of one showing the whole castle. So I decided on this one. :D


This is immediately after Wishes, the fireworks show. The lights are not on during the fireworks, sadly, but come back on immediately afterwards. The smoke is the remnants of the fireworks. Luckily we were not downwind for this show. :phew:


Photo converted from RAW. I did blue up the castle a bit by my aunt's request; it was slightly more purple in real life. I just adjusted the white balance a bit to make it more blue.


I'm not so thrilled with the guys head at the bottom, but unless I majorly abuse the clone tool, there's not much I can do about it. So oh well. :shrug:

If I scale this down a bit, may I use it as my icon? I'm definitely a Disney fan. My family and I go to DL every year.


Next year I really want to take some pictures...

Your icon here on dA? Sure, that would be really cool.

I think my favorite thing to do is take pictures at Disney. :D

Wow great picture! :D Really beautiful the way the lights colored the smoke ^^

And I tried to remove the head in Photoshop because I was curious, and it did take a lot of clone tool abuse. o.o You can kinda still tell it was cloned, but it doesn't look too bad if you don't know its there ^^

Did you really? I never like trying to remove big sections, and since I activated this one as a print I wasn't going to mess with it.

This is so beautiful. And at first I kinda said to myself, "wasn't it more purple in real life?" And now I know why it's blue. But again beautiful!

By the way, I couldn't even tell that there was a guy in the picture at first. . .

Yes, it was more purple. :paranoid: I sort of over abused the white balance but my aunt wanted a blue castle so blue it is. :lol:

It was an absolute blast, but sadly didn't pay very well. That and the heat about did me in. :XD: I like my snowy winters. But I miss it sometimes, especially when I see Spectromagic. :D
