[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this photo during the electrical parade at Disneyland's California Adventure park. This was the first photo I'd ever taken in the dark, so I had no idea how to make it better, or even how to shoot it. I was surprised to see how clearly the "smoke" from his nostrils showed up.

Not bad at all! To make good night photos we should all use a tripod... It sure helps to have the camera steady in the long exposures that are needed for the night shots, though I know that at Disney's parades is almost impossible to use a tripod, there's always so many people there to block our view :-) So, in such situations there's nothing like steady hands & holding our breath until we take the photo. If you want to learn how to take night photos, you can experiment even in your house, using a candle or something like that. Good luck.

This is wonderful for your first night shot. I have to admit I have not been successful with night shooting at all. Even with a tripod. Am studying how to do it. I love this photo and the smoke from the dragon. Congrats!....:O)

Splendid this dragon! Do you have mine too? I'm a sssssnake :o) I like this light style! It's beautifull...

This turned out really neat! And you must have steady hands. I like the smoke! Did you use an auto-night-setting on your camera or? Haven't tried mine yet...

Fine idea. I saw such a dragon in Paris Eurodisneyland too. Well done.
