Cinderella Castle

Disney Imagineers used "forced perspective" to make the 189' castle look taller.  The castle was completed in July 1971 and the moat around the castle holds approximately 3 million gallons of water.  Cinderella Castle is over 100 feet taller than Sleeping Beauty Castle.  There are 27 towers on the castle itself and in 2015 Disney added 4 more turrets expanding the view to be more panoramic.

This is a 3 bracket HDR image taken with a Sony A6000 and the 16-50 kit lens.  The normal exposure was set to F/5.0, 1/320 sec shutter speed, ISO100 at 16mm.

Have fun capturing the magic of Disney.
