i rather enjoyed both versions for different reasons. its a nice photograph.

originally it is a nice travel shot, detailing an interesting view from Vegas.

edited, it becomes a nice waterfall shot.

The photograph is very well done, looks good even on my lousy work monitor.

Do they still have all the birds in the garden? I loved walking around and taking pictures of some of their more unusual birds (like the African Crested Crane and the penguins) along with the prettier ducks (Wood Duck for one) and other water birds (Hooded Mergansers - don't know if they were permanent residents or drop-ins though as I've seen wild ones in California). It's been a few years since I've been there, so don't know if they still have them.
In my mind, most of the building in Vegas look "fake"! They may look good in the first sight but they're actually boring and dry. Do you think so?

Flamingo becomes a very affordable hotel ($35-$45 per night). They have about 20+ birds in the garden! The garden still looks clean with good maintenance.

Here is my other shots on the garden!

Thanks Walter. My eyes are dim, they cannot see, I did not bring my specks with me. I will put them on and check that out.

My-my, what a poetic, and almost shakespearian explanation about an old man's frail eyesight...!

Thanks for posting the link - I do like what you did with the reflection on the buildings - very cool. I don't think I've ever properly looked at the reflections properly, even though I have tried photograph them every so often. I always find it fascinating how someone else can take an interesting picture of something I may have looked at a million times and never seen.

I don't think the buildings are so much boring or dry, some of them have pretty ingenious exteriors. But they are all very fake and mostly over-the-top. For a long time the interiors were all the same (red and gold) but Wynn started a trend for uniqueness when he opened the Mirage and that's continued, making for some nice variety. But if left on my own in Vegas, I would head west or north - either to Red Rock or to the Valley of Fire. Those are more my type of places to visit (though I did get some half-way decent street shots once at Fremont St. Experience).
