Photo TR of Asia (1/22 - a favor to ask!)

Postby JDo217 » Wed Sep 14, 2011 7:57 am

Since I have quite a few posts in this thread I decided to put links to all of the photo posts to make things easier:
1. Hong Kong (beginnings), Macau, and Ocean Park
2. Shenzhen and Happy Valley
3. Hong Kong mini-update
4. Shanghai
5. Hong Kong big update
6. Taipei, Taiwan
7. Yangshuo, China
8. Hong Kong Disneyland, Hong Kong
9. Lotte World, Seoul
10. Seoul, South Korea
11. Tokyo, Japan
12. Kyoto, Japan & a last day in Tokyo
13. Universal Studios Singapore
14. Singapore, Singapore

We all threw our cameras into a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo since we were going on a lot of rides so I apologize in advance that I did not get many shots of the park itself. Hence mini TR. BUT I'm going to Happy Valley Shenzhen this weekend and possible Happy Valley Shanghai at the end of this month and I WILL get more photos there.

Anyways, Ocean Park was very fun. They didn't have much in the way of rides but what they did have was decent. Plus there was so much to do that we were never bored. Dragon was pretty painful and all of my friends (non-enthusiasts) hated it. The Mine Train was fun, and being so close to the edge of the mountain/cliffside was a definite plus. The drop tower was very good too.

The water rides were funny because you didn't actually get wet at all from any of the splashing that the boats made, just the massive amounts of water guns and sprinklers

As for the new B&M, it looks like it will be the best ride at the park when it finally opens. The ride looks finished but it wasn't open or testing. Granted, my view was obscured but the lift hill was topped and completed and it looked like all of the track was put on.

TPR's photo uploader never works for my photos so captions will be ABOVE the pictures

Stayed with my cousin for a few days before heading off to campus (studying abroad in Hong Kong)

Great shots. I actually prefer the "culture" pictures more!

Poor Dragon Coaster! Does this mean that the Dutch Wonderland Sky Princess isn't the only coaster to have had a gender change anymore?

It's a shame you didn't upload your photos on to the TPR server as this would make for a good front page update. ;)

^How do I do that? Or is it just uploading via the TPR uploader at the bottom of the post?

Since taking all of those pictures, I've gotten a nice 35mm lens + a decent polarizing filter and graduated NDF so hopefully I can get some nice shots

Yes, just resize the pbotos to 800x600 and use the uploader at the bottom. PM me if you have any problems and I can walk you through it.

^ Actually, he doesn't even have to re-size the pics anymore! The new forum should do that automagically.
