Nine Dragons

China Pavilion, World Showcase, Epcot, Walt Disney World

There are a few locations in Epcot that I always spend extra time exploring. The China Pavilion is one of those places. Visually, there is a lot happening in the pavilion. I love the architecture, colors and layout of the entire area. Normally, I am photographing the Temple of Heaven but honestly there is not a bad direction to point your camera.

This image is captured near the stairs into the Temple looking back across the lily pond toward the Nine Dragons restaurant. The bold primary colors with the building, sky and shrubbery make everything jump out at me. I love the reflection in the water and the lines formed by the lily pads pointing toward the building.

This is actually two images blended together, not as an HDR image but to remove a few distractions.  Normally I would have been using a tripod but the two images were captured handheld  so combining them involved a few extra steps.  If anyone is interested in the process, leave a comment and I’ll create a post of how I created this image.
