Harambe Lights

Africa, Animal Kingdom, Walt Disney World

Harambe Lights – Portfolio Blog

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…
