out of 3, i prefer #3. i didnt see the exif, but knowing bellagio available lighting, these are shot with high iso? or with tripod ?(dont think tripod is allowed). challenge on shooting the fountain is to minimize the blown highlight. You also should wait for the blue hour, its amazing. Also try the other side of the fountain and shot to the strip with Paris casino on the frame

Yeah, I'm not pleased with how I did overall in Vegas, but then I didn't have my camera out much! The ceiling was shot at 1/100th, f/5, ISO 1600 with a SIgma 30mm f/1.4

I like #3. I think the beauty of those fountains is to capture them in action. Freeze them with higher shutter speeds and I think the best time to get it right is sunset when the lights out and you still have some sort of daylight.

try to keep the verticals vertical. not sure if you have a wider version, but that will help.

Agreed with above, with nearly all night shots I prefer to shoot in that window after the sun goes down but before it's completely black. Much more interesting. Also, it's tough to get something unique in Vegas =)

As suggested by others, see if you can find a wider version of the shot - or next time take them as panorama shots to avoid the distorsion. Photoshop has a very good distorsion remover - both in RAW and jpg version - but to apply that you have to have some space around the buildings. When shooting in Pano mode you can avoid the distorsion altogether if you are shooting not too wide.

#1 is a bit to flat for me - the white haze (I understand from other comments these are fountains) does not work for me.
#2 has not much to tell... a lot of dark space and two buildings....
#3 I like... Nice colours. No idea what it is though - the photo does not "tell" that. (understand it is a ceiling)
