Default Las Vegas ... as seen by the E-PL2

Spring break ... is almost over. Me and my wife went to Vegas for a couple of days (no choice for the dates as she is a teacher). We really enjoyed it (stayed at the Paris), had good food, some nice shows (where can can't take any pictures ) ... and a lot of walking around !

Enjoy some of my shots

The spiders invasion (denoised with Topaz Denoise):



A view from the Matrix (funny diorama) :


Maybe it is safer inside (at least, cheaper!):


Poolside:


Up and Down:


and finally, Standing Up:

Excellent shots from one of my old stomping grounds. Well done and nice effects on your shots.

Lost Wages was your old stomping grounds eh? Never been there, one of these days I will. I am surprised they do not have Amtrak service into Las Vegas, many people do not like flying.

I see you're having fun with that Rokinon lens! I'd have centered the horizon a bit on the 1st and 3rd shots to minimize some of the fisheye effect. Nonetheless, nice shots.

On #3, I had a hard time being able to "push" the fisheye throught the small hole where you can take shots at the top of the Eiffel Tower. Even the 40-150 was barely fitting!

As for #1, I was trying the get the fisheye effect on the fountains when they are going high up. However, on that particular show, they never went very high
I am still happy with it !

I might post a couple more shots on the week-end ...

Some very fun shots. That second Diorama image is just too good!

I wonder how many of those people pool-side were having a "Hangover" type morning...

It as the first time that I had the "proper" place for a Diorama ... it is kind of a funny effect.

As for the pool side ... I will say probably a couple of them But not in this shot (those were trying to avoid the cold wind that day)...

The way I see, so many people were having breakfast very late on the morning (or even early afternoon) ... so I bet they went to bed way later that us old folks
