    Is it a sad thing to say that one of the most fun things I did in Vegas was walk around by myself and take photos? Yes, I think that sounds kinda sad.

    But it's true! What a great place for photography. The lights are insane, the textures are off-the-wall, and everywhere you look is a feast for the eyes. It's also a real challenge to try to get everything just right in the photo. With so many light levels working against one another on your sensor, it takes a bit to get it right.

    I just finished recording another podcast today with Jim Goldstein from EXIF and Beyond. Whenever that one comes online, I'll share it with y'all. We talked a lot about HDR and how it can best be used. I usually dial it up or down based on the photo, and this one, like my others, follows the steps in my HDR Tutorial. I can't think of a better situation for HDR than Vegas at night. I look forward to getting more time in Vegas to go take photos of the other casinos hotels. If you guys have any special requests, be sure to put them in the comments!

      Hi Customs. I like your work. How do you make your work animated like that? Is it a software or what? It's beautiful. Keep up the good work.

      I had far more fun taking shots in Vegas as well - so I certainly don't think you are the only one.

      I live in Vegas and I cant wait to get a chance to hit the strip with my new camera. This photo is beyond my camera's capabilities but it is nice to see some of your work from here. Look forward to more.
