I love your foto of the Disney Castle, I've taken this same foto but I have to give it to you, it's a GREAT capture, the reflection is clear, the color & everything so sharp. Congratulations.

Thank you! I must admit though, I cheated a little. There were a bunch of leaves in the water that I cloned out! :)

Behind The Lens

Location

I took this picture on the bridge between Main Street and Liberty Square in the Magic Kingdom at Disney World in Florida.

Time

This was taken around 2:30pm on March 17th

Lighting

This is pure natural light.

Equipment

Canon T5i with a Tokina 11-16mm lens handheld

Inspiration

I've always wanted to get a great picture of the castle, but i've never had a wide enough lens. Finally I had one, so i made a point to get to this bridge during this family trip

Editing

I did some minor processing with the levels, saturuation, contrast etc etc. I did a lot of cloning out leaves/flowers that were floating in the water.

In my camera bag

Normally I carry everything with me. As I don't have a lot of gear, this is pretty easy. Canon T5i, Canon 50mm, 18-55mm and 55-250mm, and a tokina 11-16mm. On this trip, I pretty much only carried my Camera, the 11-16mm and the 18-55 lenses.

Feedback

No real tricks to this. Have a nice wide lense so you can avoid cutting off any of the top of the castle or the reflection, and a quick shutter speed if it's a bright day.
