With pictures as amazing as that, trust me, people will notice and comment. While I don't post regularly, I do love to read the Photo TR's and yours has been one I've followed I've seen with every posting. I was lucky enough to see Europe a few years back and Central America 6 years ago, so I have had a "travel bug" to head to the Far East. I'm especially envious of all the trips TPR does over there. I now have some family in Tokyo and am hoping to get there within the next few years. Just know, that your pictures (along with the other Photo TR's) have me dying to go! Even the pictures where you aren't happy with the editing are beautiful.
Amazing pictures and entertaining reports and captions! I think I can speak for quite a few when I say keep 'em comin'!
At long last, I have an update with a theme park. Went to Hong Kong Disneyland. I've been to Disneyworld before but this was my first time at a Disneyland. We were trying to decide between Ocean Park and HKDL, with the former having just opened Hair Raiser and the latter just opening Toy Story Land. I'm sad I didn't get to ride the B&M but honestly, HKDL was fantastic.
I wish I could've gotten more pictures of Toy Story Land but it was actually pretty difficult at night. My lens has no problem with super low-light situations but I found the lighting in HKDL to be really odd. Everything was just really unnaturally dark except for Main Street. I have a feeling TSL looks very different during the day but we didn't make it back there till after dark. the parachute ride looked interested but it was a 40 minute wait so no thanks
The carousel. There's some lens flare on the bottom right god dammit. I wouldn't normally care but this was a really expensive lens and advertised to cut down on flare. Thanks Nikon
The exterior of Space Mountain at sunset
Buzz Lightyear ride was pretty lame
it's a small world
it was themed rather nicely. the theme song was nice but gets on your nerve after the 7832596th time
Toy Story Land!
The line for RC Racer. It honestly would've only been a 25-30 min. wait max but it broke down, which is how I knew this is Intamin (I think...?)
the cars were pretty cool
Toy Story Land is lit pretty nicely at night
Tarzan's Jungle Treehouse was pretty nice. These pictures were really hard to get since there's very little ambient lighting in HKDL except at Main St
when jane met tarzan
i'm having some weird exposure issues with my camera, and these pictures aren't the easiest to fix...
Main Street was a dream at night, complete with fake snow
fireworks show...i wasn't the only one with a camera ;)
wish this kid was wearing the mickey mouse ears correctly so you could actually tell what they are

SERIOUSLY great photos. I am super jealous. What are you shooting with? And especially the daytime shots, really silky smooth - camera settings, or processing?
Also really glad to see HKDL doing some business - when I visited a couple years ago it felt like I was on a private theme park tour. Which was cool, but saddening. If nothing else, I need to go back and see the 3 new mini-lands in a couple years - and they definitely look like they do seasonal events right!
Seconded. So many of these are just gorgeous; it's inspiring to look at your work. I may have already said this, but if you're not a pro, you should be. Do you use any particular Photoshop filters in your editing?
