Las Vegas, Nevada – Luxor Hotel (HDR)

From my recent trip to Vegas…this shot was on my list. I arrived near sunset and thought the light rays might be shooting along with the sunset behind the hotel….got lucky! One cool design for a hotel. Never stayed there…not sure how the room are. If the Nile is your style…this is your kinda place! =)

I was trying to find some cool and different spots in Vegas to HDR after taking this shot. I had an idea for the MGM hotel. Woke up early on AM ant 4:45 AM and walked over…hoping that things would have quieted down. Geez!! Even at 4:45 AM…people were partying and gambling! I talked to security and my idea was shot down without proper approval. I tried! If anyone has any contacts at MGM…please let me know. If not, I will try to call in advance and get the shot set up! Hopefully one day! We can all dream! Have fun!
