art: Vegas Skyline

I’ve been back in Vegas nearly a week now. (There was a little trip to Colorado that I forgot to tell you about.) Anyhoo, what better way to celebrate my return than with a classic image of the Vegas skyline.

South <—                                                               North—>

Building Key: The Luxor is on the south side and hidden by a tree. That starburst on the north side of the strip is the Stratosphere.

Technical: I took the photo at dusk with my Canon Rebel XTI. I set the ASA to 100 for most clarity and then made the aperature as small as possible to get the highest depth of field using the aperature prioity setting. Finally, I found a nice solid lump of concrete to act as a tripod and set the thing off. The exposure was 30 seconds, which actually underexposed it. But I like the effect. Voila.
