I loved the architecture of Las Vegas. The imigination!

I hope this shows up okay. I had to reduce the dimensions quite a lot in order to post it.

Good morning, Karen. Nice collage. I think you have reduced it too much. It needs to be a bit larger. We allow up to 800 pixels for the long dimension but I generally use 700. I think you have done a great job in blending the images together. Do you use special software to do that or did you do it manually?

I agree with Cal, the shot is a bit too small to see details which would probably make it even more attractive.

Aloha

Hi Cal,

I made vignettes in Photoshop Elements 5.0and combined them into an image.

I tried to make the photo 800 pixels but when I saved the picture for the web with a medium resolution at 800 pixels, it was still too large - probably because of all the various layers that went into the photo. I had the same problem with the Balsams collage. I flattened the layers into one layer and it was still too large. There may be something I could do but that's beyond my current knowledge.

The Bellagio isn't in the picture. It was one of my favorite hotels on the inside but other than the beautiful fountain out front, the design of the building wasn't as striking as the ones in the postcard. New York, the colorful buildings on the lower left, was my favorite although it is hard to choose.
