Daily Photo Tour - Enchanted Tiki

I wish Adventureland was bigger. I wish that there was some new attraction opening here next year that I could look forward to. I wish there was more room to expand Adventureland. Hey, I can wish can't I? And why you ask? Why the infatuation with Adventureland? Maybe its the color green that I love. Or the fact that Adventureland contains two of Walt Disney's original Disneyland attractions, and one of the most dynamic dark rides ever created (Insert: Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Forbidden Eye, here). Whatever it is, I love it. And like any normal human being, when I love something, I want more of it. More Adventureland please!

Fantastic job capturing the flame and the spirit of Adventureland in one frame. Really great processing too.

Showed this one to my 7 year old, and he immediately asked, "How come the rope doesn't burn?" To which I had not scientifical response, so I just told him it was all part of the Disneyland magic!

Beautiful shot, Kevin. Is the flame from one of the exposures? Did a ghosting algorithm address it or some good work in Photoshop or a little of both?

Hey Dirk,
The flame is from one of the exposures. This shot is actually only two exposures, and the flame is from the more under exposed of the two. No work in photoshop. Just some deghosting in Photomatix! But as you've mentioned, the same could be done in photoshop very easily! :)
