Thanks Lara. With such a big fountain & so many statues, it would difficult what to focus on.

That is what I call art!I though I had seen it before - but it must have been the original.

Thank you for a nice comment!

Ahh, Vegas.

I love the way you compose this shot. Very artistic bokeh with good subject isolation!

So lovely!

Dana/Dot, Luckily for telephotos lens, I did not get wet. I don't know if I would go that far to suffer for my art. Thanks for asking.

Lara/Andrea/Annie, Thanks for your comment. This is a well photographed fountain in Vegas, I'm sure. Day or night, people are posing in front of it.

NYCIndividual, glad to oblige. I have a few other fountain pictures that I have yet to post. ;)

AVCR8TEUR said...

Oswegan, well said. Unfortunately, I know exactly what you mean.

AVCR8TEUR said...

Roentarre, thank you for the compliment. I figure the shot of the whole fountain was already overdone. Plus I need to practice on my isolation shots.

AVCR8TEUR said...

Web-OJ, thanks. Running the fountain in the desert is always a money losing proposition.

I have to admit to not noticing this when I was in Vegas....the water show at the Bialligio or however you spell it was awesome! This is lovely.
