Epcot China Pavilion - Temple of Heaven

 

The title covers it. This is the China Pavilion at the Epcot resort in Walt Disney World (WDW), focusing on the replica of the Temple of Heaven, taken at night after the fireworks display ended. The Epcot World Showcase looks better at night than it does in daylight. The combination of darkness and well-done lighting hides many of the the little tells that render the experience just a bit less true during the day. At night, one can fall more easily for the illusion.

    Well composed and that pavilion is pin sharp, Mark. It takes night-time for a place like this to reveal its best.ReplyCancel

    Perfectly composed and exposed Mark. I am headed there for two weeks in late Oct. This is making me want time to accelerate.ReplyCancel

29 Washington Square West

 

The good thing about January early morning photo excursions is you can usually get in some night time shooting at a somewhat reasonable hour before dawn. The downside is that it can be crazy cold, as it was this morning.  I have come to love this shot, which has been sitting around for several months, including the processing. I think this might be my only HDR of the year, but I’m not even sure of that. This could be just one shot. I’m not certain.

In The Shadow Of The Seven

 

This is a shot that is not as interesting as I imagined it would be when I took it. Part of it is a lack of sharpness on the buildings and the balconies. But I kind of think there’s still something here.  This is on Roosevelt Avenue in the Woodside neighborhood of Queens.

    There’s definitely something there, Mark. I like the diagonal framing and the building beyond has considerable interest. The light was obviously tricky, but if it was me I would certainly be heading back there for a second shot at this.ReplyCancel

Looking Up Mercer

 

The Empire State Building is everywhere.  Mercer Street in SoHo from just north of Broome Street, on an early Sunday morning.

NB: And boy am I embarrassed because that’s the Chrysler Building (D’oh!)
