Hey guys,

I was bored and thought I spread some more feel-good vibes by starting a "Best Picture" competition.

Round One is pictures of DLRP's legendary ride - Space Mountain: Mission 2.

Here's my effort - can you beat it?

Smoke, recoil, closing bay door, ahh... bliss...

I'm beaten, but here's the best i can find (aka from 2009's photos);

I don't know just think it has a bit of a hollywood effect, looming from the trees :P

Remember though SM was closed for nearly every day i was there so i had a bit of a disadvantage [/excuse]

Its funny, it never really dawned on my before how much the whole Mountain looked like a U.F.O.!

Interesting little side note - I've just watched the Colin Baker "Doctor Who" series called "Trial of a Time Lord" and it mentioned that Mr Baker opened a indoor-rollercoaster at the Blackpool Pleasure Beach called "Space Mountain".  I can only remember it being called "Space Invader" - did Disney force them to change the name?

Wow, that sky on your day picture is amazing, almost looks photoshopped!
All the other pics are great too, very nice and I don't even like the usual sight of Space Mountain :lol:

That's because it is. It is called HDR (High dynamic range imaging) and is a very popular effect these days: HDR at Google Images


I think these are my favourites:

By day:

And by night:


Yes, my picture is HDR :)  Although I try to make them look more "real" than most HDRs look.  I LOVE DLP's Space Mountain... I think it is tied with Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant as my favorite photography subject across all of the Disney parks I have been to.  Some great pictures here :)
