I was in the Vegas area last week and spent a few hour at Hoover Dam. I really liked the way this 3 shot HDR of Hoover Dam turned out.

Great shot. The lighting and reflections are great.

Was the bypass bridge done or are they still working on it?

Thanks for the kind comments. I used Photomatix. Exposure settings? hmm, iso 100, f5, full auto, 20 sec exp. +2/-2 for HDR.
