Default C&C please!

Just came back from work in Las Vegas...
I stayed in Flamingo and I had chance to walk through the garden in the morning! Wow, it surprised me!

The garden is full of waterfall! So I pick up one of the good looking waterfall with Flamingo logo on the side!
So far, this was my best on yesterday..any common are very welcome!

Beautiful colors and good capture of the water flow. As Kazuya said, the falmingo sign is a bit out of place...bubt interesting never the less!

How in hell did you do that? Do you have some kind of satanic pact?

I have a satanic pact with my cloning tool. Its not that hard really as long as you have enough area to clone without repeating the same thing over and over so it is obvious to the eye.

Bynx..it looks perfect!

I'm a bit surprise that everyone suggests to remove the flamingo sign.

My point of this photo is showing the garden of the flamingo hotel!

Sorry Anguslam. I realized what you were doing but Kayzula tossed me a challenge which I couldnt refuse. Your shot of the falls is a really good one. Great exposure for the surroundings considering you slowed it down to capture that beautiful silky water. Those rocks are obviously fake. They look like the same kind of rock seen all around Disneyland. Some sort of concrete. But the sign and the garbage bucket at top (which I didnt remove) all give the pic an unnatural look and really do spoil it for those who werent there. Keeping the memory of the Flamingo more to the forefront would for for those like yourself and others who actually saw the waterfall.

I have to admit that when I first saw the picture my thought was "oh, how VEGAS". The sign is rather jarring but that's Vegas.

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.
