Disneyland: Sunrise to Sunrise – The Outtakes

As I shared yesterday, the team at TouringPlans has released our first eBook, Disneyland: Sunrise to Sunrise, which is one operational day at Disneyland through photos. As I mentioned in yesterday’s post introducing the book, I am responsible for the photography in the book, and I was also responsible for the design and layout. As I designed the book, I was tasked with narrowing down some 385 photos I had identified as good fits for the book to just over 200 for the finished product. When it comes to my photos, I can be my own worst critic and my own biggest fan, meaning that sometimes photos that I think are hideous others love and photos that I love others find mediocre or worse. Given that, I sought the feedback of the rest of the team with regard to the potential photos for the eBook. Based upon their feedback and my own judgment, I made some difficult cuts.

Here are some of my favorite photos that didn’t make the cut for the finished book:

What do you think? Did I make the right call excluding these photos, or should they have been in the book?

  • I LOVE the third shot—sunrise or sunset—as it is a view we rarely get to see. Do you have a hi-def version of this available online? I’m thinking it would be an awesome wallpaper. Thanks for the pictures, and the ebook. Just purchased it.

    Wow, if these are the “rejects”, I can’t wait to see what’s in the e-book. Tom, your photos are always phenomenal! Ditto the previous comment, are these (or others) available for wallpaper?

    Is the last picture the locking of the park gate? If so, I think that would have been a great ending to the book. Thank you for your posts and pictures. I always enjoy reading your park adventures.

  • I love the picture from Its a Small World. I love that ride. I’m planning a WDW trip and I’m sad that florida’s ride isn’t as grand from the outside as the DL one.

  • Echoing what has been said…theses are the rejects? The book must be a wow. Nice work.
