The Illuminated Castle

I've written a lot about how the Disneyland Paris castle is the most beautiful of them all, and how spectacular it is to behold and photograph. But today, I actually want to express my amazement that I was able to take and process the photo below in just one exposure.  Normally, I have to take a few to get something that captures the full dynamic range of a castle scene, but somehow at Disneyland Paris, the lighting seems to have evened things out, and with the exception of a few areas like the glass at the highest tower and the lamppost lights where the highlights are blown out, everything else is actually pretty much properly exposed.  Pretty cool that getting the right settings in camera can make post-processing much less time-consuming!
