    I like these shots and also can't wait for our next visit this coming October..... the heads are a little distracting at the bottom of a few of the photos but I think cropping them would actually take away from the photos. All in all Nice Work!!!

    This is a beautiful site. I so wish I had my new camera when I went 2 years ago.

    Did you happen to get any shots of the electrical parade?

    unfortuneately it's almost impossible to get shots without some people jumping in your way at disney :(

    Could you explain what settings you used to take those? I want to take some pictures this 4th of July, and want to get it right the first time. They look great, good job!

    small ones, yes

    getting it set up where someone won't trip on it or walk in front of your shot, impossible

    WARNING:

    I am an amateur, and i might offend some pros that look in this thread. but my settings are ones that I use and proven to work, i know others that shoot with faster shutters etc... but these work for me :thumbup:

    HANDHELD:
    shoot in manual
    ISO800
    F between 5-8
    shutter between 1/8 to 1/15

    it takes alot of practice, fortunately for me i have annual passes to disney where i can practice often ;)

    keep practicing, if you find something that works better, let me know:mrgreen:
