Be Our Guest - Magic Kingdom

Be Our Guest in Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World is a magical place to dine, but even moreso during the holidays.  If you are fortunate enough to get a seat by the window, you can see the snow falling outside.  That with the three, the wreaths and other decorations, make it a magical dining experience.

This was a 3 bracket HDR image.  I was not able to use a tripod so I had to take this one handheld.  To minimize camera shake, I used my fastest lens which is also a 35mm focal length.  I set the completely manual for this shot setting the shutter speed first to 1/100 sec and aperture at f/1.8.  From there, I dialed in the ISO to be 800.

I then did some post processing in Adobe Lightroom to bring up the exposure about 1 f-stop, the applied a tad bit of noise reduction and general tone mapping.

Have fun capturing the magic of Disney.
