Disney World! My favorite place. This photo is from a 1996 visit, one of the four times I have been there. As always, it was a fabulous vacation.
This is a twilight shot of Main Street USA in the Magic Kingdom. I was walking through a connecting side street to get to the parade area and saw this juxtaposition of the moon, soft twilight, and bright electric lights.
The combination was so lovely that I tried one of my iffy nighttime photos. It came out surprisingly well, below. It just needed a few fixes to make the photo attractive enough to be a great memory in my photo album.
I used these Picasa steps to get the velvety look above:
- Auto contrast
- I’m feeling lucky
- Tuning (I used tuning several times because it was difficult to get the twilight lighting to be acceptable)
After I had all my fixes in Picasa done, I opened the photo in Paint to delete the orange date and to cover some odd white splotches appearing throughout the scanned print.
