Luxor At Night

Recently I did a really fun 'field trip' with the Nevada Camera Club. It's interesting to see my home town in a different manner...with a different eye so to speak....than I'm used too. As an almost-native (30+ years), I don't do much touring inside the city. This field trip had me out on the Strip at 11:00 p.m. taking photos with all the tourists. It was hot, jam-packed and fun.

We also had the opportunity to take photos of the World Market Center downtown and from a condo in the Panorama Towers. This is one of the captures I got from there:

Night photography is WAY more difficult than I ever imaged in Vegas. The lights get 'blown out' on timed exposures. But this, after some Photoshopping, came out pretty good I think. Of course, it looks better at the original size of 5+ mbs as opposed to 65 kbs. But, this is nice anyway.

That's an awesome picture! Vegas has a tendency to surprise people with how beautiful and exciting it can look even with all the glitz.

Anyway just thought I'd let you know it was a great picture :) Have a great day!

What a great shot! I have no clue how to do good nighttime photographs; I'll have to start working on that.
