    eh, she wasnt really supposed to be in the picture. the focus was put on the IOA sign, not her. But i LOVE having a super wide angle lense. I dont have to stand back 500 ft to get the whole thing in the frame and have 11ty billion people between me and the subject.

    I just picked up the D40 over the weekend, got a lot to learn though:o

    We're going to FL in the late summer, Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom mostly though:o. Good to see other pics come out good:o.

    Have fun while your down here. Have alot of patience, Disney gets ALOT of tourism.

    nah, they are pretty strict about allowing that kinda stuff on the rides. not to mention, she didnt wanna go on any of the major coasters in the park. that was a bummer :wtc:. First time ive even been there and havnt rode the Hulk.

    the 3rd shot was a mistake, lol. She was playin with the lense cap on the camera and I accidently hit the shutter release. A little rotate and crop and voila!

    I got misted from the water shots, but so worth it. The wide angle lense took a pretty badass picture! Ive got some coaster shots also, but they didnt come out as good.

    oh we know...we know:o

    my wife is an ex Disney employee of 7 years:o. We know all about Disney...of course we know a lot of people AT Disney so we don't pay for it either:o. It'll be first trip without a point and shoot camera so I'm hoping to get some really good stuff. I want to pick up another lense before going down there though to get some good pics from the Safari ride, and such.

    I tried shooting on that safari ride, I had my D80 with a 70-200 f2.8, didnt get one good shot, it almost travels too fast, and the fact everyone always getsin your way as soon as you goto take pic pissed me off.

    I wouldnt waste the $$ again at Animial Kingdom, i think its the worst park outta them all there in FLA.

    Good luck though, maybe youll have better luck.

    like I said...we don't pay for our tickets:mamoru:

    yeah we've done the Safari ride quite a few times, and I have a preferred spot where I like to sit so I can make sure to get good pics. Even with old point and shoots I was able to get pics, but nothing really super clear and any good. I'm hoping to see a marked improvement in the quality of shots I'm getting now:x:.

    Plus we'll get into special meet and greets with some fo the characters/princesses etc so I've got all sorts of great opportunities...it's just making sure that the photographer is up to the task:o....I've got a lot to learn between now and then:o.

    i use lightroom for PP. Im not sure if there is anything 'special' that i do, just adjust the picture till i like it. and i dont think thats a sensor speck, i think it was on the lense. it only shows up on the wide angle lense.
