Flower Power

Monorail Monday

I think I will always walk around Future World in Epcot looking for interesting views of the monorails. I can’t help myself. I will wait. I will plan. And I will wait some more. It is part of my fun while I am in the park.

This Monorail Monday image is of Monorail Green gliding through Future World in front of a few pretty big flowers. When I spotted the these flowers on the grassy knoll before Mission: Space I knew a monorail image would not be far behind. My wait was only seven minutes for this opportunity to present itself. Usually my biggest challenge is getting a fast enough shutter speed to freeze the monorail.

Reflection Warped

Monorail Monday
Walt Disney World

I hate to say it but due to inclement weather the Walt Disney World posts will have to continue. I was hoping to bring some of the great Florida weather back with me last week but it looks like my return had the opposite affect… I apologize. Forecast for most of this coming week is rain out here with me. Wishing your weather is better.

The start of the work week is also Monorail Monday in the Disney photography community. I am sure most of the regular readers of this blog are well aware of this fact as I do my best to contribute each week. This week is interesting though due to the nature of the image I chose to share.

The first image is my normal or classic monorail image. I love a reflection and when I can capture the monorail and its reflection I am one happy camper. As I was processing this image I became more aware of the unique quality of the reflection. It is distorted by a set of ripples traveling through the water. I chose to reprocess my image focusing on the distortion. The second image in this post is my result.

I changed the format to square and processed the image differently than my original. I started with a preset from Trey Ratcliff called ‘A Beautiful Release’ and modified it slightly. I also added a subtle vignette to keep you focused on the reflection. Did it work?
