Black and White at the Point!


Recommended Posts

Ok so you are thinking, "Oh no another Cedar Point TR, yawn!" Well I would be too, but that is why I am here to present it in black and white! I also took lots of photos of the All Wheels Extreme show because my girlfriend Erin stage manages it and wanted some photos, which means you get to see them too!

 

I have no notion of what the lines or rides were like because I actually didn't ride anything.

 

The pictures are in the same order as I took them which is this schedule.

 

3 o clock AWE show, B&W photos.

3:30 o clock to 5 o clock park photos

5 clock AWE show, Color photos

 

If you don't enjoy pictures of shows, I understand browse through the park photos and go about your merry TPR way!

 

Hope you enjoy!

This goes here because I have never seen a bug like that before, the front long white things are not feet, they are feelers.

Great Pictures! B&W photos are really refreshing when your so used to trip reports in color. Really artsy and nice, great job.

 

I have yet to see all wheels extreme, but it seems like they must be getting better each year! Even if the stage gets worse... (glug, haha, jang, zap...) I think "Wah--?!" pretty much sums that up.

 

Also, i've had Bosco Sticks and theirs cheese inside. Not really sure why that's such a big mystery...

Thanks for the comments! Also thanks to everyone who viewed but didn't comment, I just like to know people look!

 

The Bosco Sticks were exciting until I finally tried them yesterday, not so much anymore they are kinda cheap imitations and, like the rest of the park, small for the price.

Not bad, but I really do not like most of the B+W photos though... An amusement park to me is fun, vibrant and colorful... Sure, some B+W can look good but for most of those shots it just looks 'off' to me.

 

 

"They are all natural black and white as well not just desaturated in photo shop"

 

Maybe that is the problem... If you let your camera do the B+W conversion (there is no "natural") that may be the reason the B+W photos look off to me. By doing it in post via photoshop or lightroom, you can control many aspects of the contrast within the B+W photo to make them pop more. Just a suggestion for the future.

 

I have yet to see the All Wheels show this summer yet... Might have to stop there this weekend and watch it!

 

Good TR, I would just prefer color

funny, because I was thinking black and white TOTALLY capture the dullness of Cedar Point! Perfect!

Actually for reference I found that I had photoshopped two of the photos, meaning to color isolate then forgetting.

 

The picture of twister outside the stadium and the picture of Iron Dragon and Corkscrew from the Wildcat midway. I actually hate how they look compared to the other ones because I believe that the natural B&W looks so much better. But hey to each his own!

 

And I love the dullness comment!

 

Criticism is fun thanks for viewing!

AWE looks pretty sweet. I saw them rehearsing when I went up to the point a few weeks ago, but I want to see the actual show now! I'll have to go watch it next time I make it up to CP (and try out for the Rock Band show since I missed my chance at KI)
