Cinderella Castle Fantasy HDR


This fantastic image of Cinderella Castle in Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom combines a series of photographs of varying exposures, combines them with HDR creation software, then tops it off with a touch of Photoshop magic for one amazing image. Quite a bit of time went into the creation of this beautiful scene, with one person commenting that, "it has an Annie Liebowitz look it to". Complement accepted for sure.

This print is available for purchase at The Magic in Pixels in the following sizes: 8x10, 11x14, 16x20. Go to themagicinpixels.com/shopping and get one for yourself or as a gift for someone else today!

Use discount code 25OFF to save 25% on your entire order!

Sir William, King of Fantasyland

Once upon a time there was a Sword named Excalibur which was lodged in an anvil in an enchanted place called Fantasyland. The stone on which the anvil rested was inscribed, "Whoso pulleth out this sword of this stone and anvil is rich and wise ruler born of England".



Along came the young price, Sir William, full of vim and vigor and in his youthful exuberance did he try to free said sword from it's prison of iron and stone. But, alas, it was not to be.


Even with his father, Lord Timoteo, by his side, young Sir William could not free the sword, despite his most passionate attempts. Clearly, all of the muscle power the young men could amass would not be enough to release Excalibur from it's prison.


Along came Lord Timoteo's father, whom Sir William doth moniker as the Mighty Pop-Pop, and try as they might, they three nobelmen could not manage to retrieve the mighty Excalibur. This was going to take more than sheer muscle and might to solve. What to do? What to do?


After wishing on a star with his tender heart, the sweet and loving Sir William got his wish in the form of a fairy named Valerie, who wore a magical white straw hat and carried a magic wand that made bubbles with every wave. Could Valerie grant Sir William the magical powers needed to release Excalibur from it's place of confinement? Did Sir William possess the purity and innocence to free the Sword from the Stone?


With some magic words and little bit of pixie dust, something incredible started to happen... the sword began to lift from the anvil! All hail Sir William, the new King of Fantasyland!

Off to the 'World!
Hey all, just a quick note to let you know that I am off to the 'World with my son and father for a few days. A much needed vacation, the highlight of this trip will be the Phillies vs. Braves Spring Training game at Disney's Wide World of Sports. Accompanying us to the game will be my grandfather, making four generations of guys in our family catching a Phillies game in Walt Disney World. It doesn't get any better than that.

Stay tuned for news and updates!

The Joys of Chaning Servers
Just a quick note to anyone who noticed that The Magic in Pixels has been a bit "wonky" the past few days...

I had to make a sudden and unexpected change in hosting companies with very little notice and no time to debug and test the site on the new server before going live. Needless to say, things don't always go as smoothly as planned. Thanks to some nice help and support from friends of TMIP, most of the issues have now been resolved and we are back to operating as close to normal as possible.

If you are in need of quality hosting with a small outfit where you can get some help when you need it, I recommend you check out Krypton Hosting and see if they have a solution that fits your needs.

Thanks for your patience during the transition period and have a magical week.
