Photographing the American Adventure show is a challenge for me and my camera. On my last trip, I was able to sit close enough to use my fastest lens, the Nikon 50mm f/1.8 or Nifty Fifty. That allowed me to get this scene which is the bridge between the Depression and the start of World War II in the show and is my Disney Pic of the Week on The American Adventure.

Scott replies: Thanks, Mike! Best I've ever been able to photograph the AA show.

Scott:
You have taken a photo that is very hard to do. I have never been successful in getting a quality shot of this.

Scott replies: Phil, the keys for my success this time (I've been unsuccessful in the past myself) was the fast lens, getting close to the stage for its focal length and using spot metering (which I failed to mention in the post).
