Las Vegas, Nevada – The Venetian Hotel (HDR)

From the super photogenic hotel…the Venetian in Las Vegas…this is the entry area.  Quite stunning!  I has posted other shots form here and for this one as well…had to people dodge for a while!   I have never stayed here…but hear it is wonderful!  I miss all the lights and people after leaving Vegas.  Each time I go, I see more and more potential photographs.   That means more visits!  Now Photoshop World in Vegas one year sounds like a plan!  =)  On a side note..I processed this with Photomatix.  I chose Photomatix over NIK’s HDR Efex Pro for the first time!  In my opinion, any photo with a high amount of golden tones may have to be put through Photomatix.  NIK’s version of this shot was not as good.  Of course your choice.  Once in a blue moon I may still use Photomatix.    Have fun!
