Skywatch Friday - Disney's Castle

Yes, it is Friday!!

and not just any Friday...today is the first day of Summer Vacation for me!!
One of the greatest things about being a teacher is summer vacation!!
Last year at this time, my family and I were on a plane to the States to spend a couple of weeks in Disney with my parents and sisters...so this photo is to celebrate another summer!!

What an absolutely mesmerizing photo!!

Jim said...

Scotty,

I love what you've done with this photo. There's a subtle and smooth transition of coloration until those spires pop. It adds intrigue to the tone & mood of the image and heightens the drama. Very nice photoshop work!

BTW, I like the sepia toned flowers better: highlights & details (dew, leaf veins). But, those yellows & greens of the color photo are captivating. It's a tough call.

Enjoy your summer break. I'll be stopping by to see what you're up to.

Thanks for your visit to my SWF post.

Jim

Absolutely magical! Do you photoshop? I know quite a few photographers do. I'm no professional, but I don't even know how to use PHotoshop yet although I'd like to learn. I've seen some amazing photos as a result of the touching up in photoshop!

jenrinaldiphotography said...

wow that is Fantastic w/ a capital "F"!

quinttarantino said...

Much bigger than the castle they built on Disneyland Paris where I've been for three times already!

Patty said...
