Escape From Pompeii

A water ride through the ancient ruins of Pompeii, located in Busch Gardens, Virginia. I did go on it and I did get soaked. It was ok though since the temperature was 93F/33.9C.

How did you get it while empty?????I was there, that same spot you are and took this same shot five years ago. Couldnt believe we did the same one at the same spot. except your soooooo much better, Im going to have to find it...separated by six degrees, isnt that what they say about every one in the world?

Lol, PT. Isn't it 6 degrees from Kevin Bacon? It was still early in the morning when I shot this. Thanks for looking and the generous rating. Thank you as well, Richard. You're very kind. I want you to know I've been on a mission searching for HDR-able stuff. Thanks again, both of you. Smile!

I looked at this and did a double take - it looks so Pompeii like I could not believe the water slide! A very nice shot as well. I thik HDR creates depth and a 3D feel in some images and it does it here very well. Viv
