So, the gallery of what I initially called 5-star images is up here; I think I've changed my mind about a few of them, but that could be just the 1024x768 images that are shown in the gallery. If anyone wants 'em, I set the gallery to allow downloading of whole images -- just be aware that the new camera is 15 megapixels, so the images are...big.
Meanwhile, here are the smaller preview-sized pictures. Comments, if any, are above the corresponding picture.
First we have NEON. ;-) Actually, I liked all the almost garish colors contrasting with the gentle blue of the sky. Also? Love the clouds.
I've taken almost this exact picture before, but this is cropped extensively. Plus, the sky was blue -- difficult for someone who generally chooses to do Disney on cooler days or late afternoon / night time.
Patrick does not often let me take his picture, so I generally snap one while he's taking his own. Sometimes I even get away with it.
"Get ready, Screamers! Launch in five, four, three...."
"...one!" (Note that this picture looked sharp when I edited it. It seems odd to think that some blurriness was added -- specifically to the people and background -- when it was resized for the web, but who knows?)
Grizzly Peak. It took me three or four visits to catch onto the face, way back when.
I like the vertical composition better, but I prefer the colors in this one:
And this one:
I've mentioned before, I think, that I love to photograph water.
The Disneyland...Honor...Band (I think that was what it was called) during the Flag Retreat Ceremony. (Which I stumbled upon as I was attempting to attach a different camera strap, as I didn't really want to walk around with, in effect, "NEW DIGITAL CAMERA" emblazoned on my neck, even at Disneyland.)
The old logo, the band uniforms...somehow it screamed sepia tone. I also have a B&W version.
And, last but in no way least, my pride and joy of the day, taken at an ISO of 3200, with my nifty fifty, in order to get the most light into the camera as possible.
Again, whole gallery is here. Other galleries (past pictures) are here.
