King Arthur CarrouselAnaheim, CA
As I pressed the shutter to start this bracket I looked up and noticed the sign for King Arthur Carrousel was spelled with two "r's." My initial reaction was that it was spelled wrong, or maybe it was some kind of strange British spelling. After a little googling I found both spellings are in fact correct, and both are relatively widely used. In fact, the carousel at California Adventure, King Triton's Carousel, is spelled with one 'r,' I'm not sure how or why Disney chose to spell carousel differently between Disneyland and California Adventure.
One of the cool things about photo post processing, especially in HDR workflows, is when parts of the photo become visible in ways that were not visible to the naked eye, and even weren't visible in the individual raw images. The sky in this scene was an ugly flat orange, both in the raw image and to my eyes at the time. After HDR merging and color correction for the orange lights, some texture showed up in the clouds, and the sky turned to a blue/black color that's much closer to what I expect a night sky to look like. It's pretty cool what can be done with simple adjustments in modern post processing tools. #disneyland #carousel #hdr #hdrphotography
