Hot Dog Heaven
Posted By: newtmaker, 01-03-2007, 10:26 AM

A local eatery here in Orlando, FL. Very popular, and it fits a theme in a camera club contest coming up.
K10D, FE zoom at 10mm.

Cool shot! I really like this.

Since you'll be entering this into a contest, I have just a minor suggestion, I repeat...a MINOR suggestion. Clone out the power lines at the very top left and right corners. Just my $0.02, worth nothing Out of curiosity, what's the theme?

Good luck with this super shot!

Thanks Photochop. The theme is "City Life" Of course that can be intrepreted a "bunch" of ways, but my thought revolved around daily activities in a large city environment.
I may try the cloning and see what it does to the final print.

I agree about the power lines.
My sugestion would be if you have the chance to re-take the photo try talking some young lady with rollerblades to carry the hotdog out to you on a tray.
I'd even try getting her to dress the part if possible.

oh, I still like the picture, and wish that I had a similar building close buy, I'd have fun with it

Well, there are old fashioned drive in restraunts around here that do occasionaly have girl "car hops". (There's a term I almost forgot!) And, of course, there is Sonic, but here I don't believe they have the car hops. Not sure?

Great shot. Cloning the power line out might not be a good idea. The contest is "City Life". can't remember seeing to many Hot dog stands without a little clutter around.

Nice shot... But more important... How are the dogs?
I wish I knew that was there. The past 2 years PMA has been in orlando and I would have gone there. I love hotdog stands. Oh well I guess i'll have to settle for the 1lb hotdog in Vegas this year
