Do you think this photo is HDR or not? It’s the second photo I have released with the Nikon D800 with it’s 36 megapixel extremeness! I’ll leave it open for debate for a while… you may enjoy watching the discussion over on Google+ as well!
And speaking of that… I am here on the maiden voyage of the Disney Fantasy. It’s an amazing ship (50% bigger than the other ships) and a great playground for photographers! Forget the kids! In fact, I almost did a few times… but they are having fun in all the kids’ clubs… Well… I have a ton to talk about and show… but busy busy busy with photos and not much internet! Anyway, debate away on whether or not this is HDR… Either I’m tricking you, I double-tricking you, or something unknowable… I look forward to coming back and seeing what you think!

William Beem (frequent community commenter here on the blog… you know him… you love him…) recorded a video of the situation below. See it here on YouTube.
Missed our Cruise!
We were supposed to get on a cruise for Disney today and we missed it because of flight problems! Oh no… so now we are scrambling to get down to Grand Cayman to meet the boat…
Daily Photo – Where the Princess Dwells at Night…
But, while in the middle of all this drama, I happened to already be Orlando, so why not make the most of it?
I called for a little PhotoWalk at Disney! It was really really really fun — and getting this shot was tough! I think +William Beem +Gilmar Smith +Keith Barrett or perhaps +Ali Elhajj got a video of me trying to convince half a dozen Disney workers to “sweep water” in front of my camera, which was splayed on the ground. At first, one guy didn’t want to do it because he might get in trouble… then the other acquiesced… and then, before they knew it, they were all being controlled like crystal farmers in Starcraft… we eventually got all the water in the right place!
I had to go over and whip out my sweet Android phone to show them some photos from Google+ — I found the one from Paris with the puddle — I said I needed a puddle about thiiiiis big … and eventually we got it all engineered out. They were all very helpful and nice… I convinced them all to come onto Google+ to see the final result — so I hope they are here! Hi guys – Y muchas gracias!

Facebook Subscribe and the New Timeline
My Facebook page has been getting more and more subscribers lately, so if I was unable to friend you because I hit the 5K limit, this Subscribe option will work out well for you. I also activated the new Timeline, but I notice not everyone has yet. Have you done it? I think it is kinda cool, even though I know there are a few FB-haters out there.
Daily Photo – The Old Market
I have another Disneyworld trip coming up, and I was reminded of this place. This is Epcot, one of the best spots for photography at sunset and into the evening.
This area makes me long to go to some of these places for real. It’s all so wonderfully fake around Disney, but that is nice in its own way. I have several more places in the Middle East to visit, and I hope to make that happen over the next few years. Before I actually decide on a place and land on the shores of Tripoli, I’ll be sure to blog about it!

Fake Book in China
I’m not sure – but I think this is a rogue copy of my book in China! I signed it anyway
Daily Photo – The French Quarter of Disney
Amazing Disneyworld! I am starting to switch my opinion about the best place to shoot in Disneyworld. I’m now thinking it is definitely Epcot. It used to be Animal Kingdom, which is still amazing.. but I find myself with more options and variety at Epcot, especially in the evening.
Here’s a great tip. If you stay at the resort, then go to Epcot on the “bonus hours” evening. Then get yourself way out at the opposite end of the park when it closes. You can then take your time and leave, taking photos all along the way. It’s pretty much absolutely deserted! The security guards did not seem to bother me either…
Happy New Year!
I hope you all have a great new year! I look forward to spending 2012 with you… We have all kinds of fun stuff to see and do together this year – let’s have some fun
Daily Photo – As Night Settles on the Old Lake
Here is another photo that is too good to be true… and, unfortunately, it is.
This is a replica of Portofinio, Italy. It’s a resort hotel in Orlando, Florida at Universal Studios. It’s so wonderfully fake — and so wonderful at the same time. I can’t quite decide if I like the fakeness of it all. It does make for amazing photos, though, so that is cool. Maybe it’s kind of like a really hot girl that has had a lot of plastic surgery. There’s some fake in there, but it’s still nice to look at. Okay that’s a horrible analogy… but you get the idea…hehe.
