Just as the sun sets the strip comes alive. The Mandalay Bay Hotel was nice to let me on the terrace with my tripod :-)

Awesome composition Claire! My eyes tell me that for a twilight the picture should be a bit more warm... Maybe it is just me... Did you have WB correction?

Personal preference would be the cooler version; but you'd have to really thrash the WB to wreck that shot ;)

Stellar shot. I prefer the first version. I think the cooler WB makes it seem to be sharper.

Thank you all for your input. I can't decide if I like the warmer or cooler version. Maybe I will play with it some more and try somehere in between. This is the reason why I love this forum.......so helpful when others give feedback. :-)

Wow, you packed a big hunk of the strip into that shot! Plenty to study there. Kudos on not blowing out the neon signs. I think you caught it with just the right amount of natural light to balance with the glitzy signage. Well done.

Regards,
Mark

Very nice but I would like to see one maybe 15-20 mins later with more blue in the sky. Do you have one? Not that it would be better, just different. We were in Vegas last week so nice to reminisce!

Thanks Mike, I took this image right at the bottom of the blue hour which was at 6:15pm. I started shooting at 5:45 and ended at 6:30 but the shots at 6:30 were starting to get difficult to control the exposure of the bright lights. I still can play with the image in Photoshop and try to get the sky a bit darker blue.
