THE PICTURE OF THE DAY, 2/27/2014
Perhaps the second most iconic image from Disneyland Park is The Matterhorn which stands majestically high above Fantasyland. This image, taken from the Storybook Land Canal Boats attraction features The Matterhorn standing tall above Pinocchio’s Village in the foreground; if you look closely you can even see Geppeto’s Work Shop in the bottom third of the picture along the right hand border. Post processing included adjusting the exposure and contrast in Lightroom, followed by a slight vignette to darken the corners and give more contrast to the sky and The Matterhorn. The picture was taken later in the afternoon which caused the darker shadows and heavy contrast in the foreground. I really love Disneyland’s visual appeal; there are amazing sight lines that you cannot get in Walt Disney World and the natural beauty and elegant design of Disneyland Park makes me want to go to California over and over. It doesn’t hurt that The Matterhorn is a classic attraction either.
