All Lined Up
Today’s photo comes from a very wet Main Street USA at the Magic Kingdom.
I’m not always in the parks on days like this. Being a local, you tend to look out the window and judge whether or not it’s a good day to visit. But, since I write Dateline Disney World for MiceChat, there are times where I have to go to get content, regardless of how perfect (or not perfect) the weather may be for photography. The cool thing about that is that I get fun and unique opportunities like this. My fiancee and I were running across Main Street to get to Starbucks (our new favorite place in MK), and I saw this shot and had to stop, even though it was raining pretty hard. Main Street was virtually empty, it was lit decently, and the people waiting for the 3PM parade (which was eventually cancelled due to rain) created a perfect set of leading lines to Cinderella Castle. So, I got a little bit wet, but it was worth it in the long run.
Processing a photo like this can be a little challenging, since the skies tend to blow out on overcast days like this. Thankfully the highlight recovery slider in Lightroom has a degree from Hogwarts and magically makes detail that wasn’t there appear out of nowhere. I also opted to cool the white balance a tad on this image to give it a more old school, 1970′s WDW look.
