The El Cortez, a hotel and casino is a relatively small downtown Las Vegas gaming venue a block from the Fremont Street Experience and Las Vegas Boulevard. The official marketing slogan has been "Where locals come to play" since the El Cortez has traditionally attracted Las Vegas residents weary of large casinos geared towards tourists. Slots, table games and a race and sports book occupy one floor of the main pavilion. It is one of the oldest casino-hotel properties in Las Vegas having continuously operated at the same Fremont Street location since 1941. Primarily Spanish Colonial Revival in style, it reflects a 1952 remodel when the facade was modernized. On February 22, 2013, the structure was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

It is good to see a picture from the 'quieter' part of town. This lovely evening shot shows the bright neon lights balanced well by the car headlights. The clarity is excellent.
Kind Regards, Ann

The lights in dusk time enhanced the contrast to the surrounding's, Eleu.
It looks as a Casino for the more simple people, who do not need the lavish and extravagant of the bigger establishments.
Fine taken shot, moving car appears in good clarity.

This is a superb street-shot from the blue hour. The neon lights and palms brighten the darkening sky and the approaching car fills the foreground perfectly. The gambling may be the same here as in the huge downtown casinos, but this smaller-scale complex looks nicer.

blue hour and neons-perfect combination for an amazing shot!
Really love the strong contrast between still blue sky and artificial lights of neons.Itīs exactly what we associated Las Vegas with.
The scene is well composed,has superb quality and whatīs for me the most important it captures and conveys well the spirit and character of the city.
Have a nice day

Good density levels with punchy light contrasts, excellent sharpness, and nice warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue. Well composed with good breathing space around key components and with excellent shadow detail. Tfs!

This seems a quieter part of town indeed but the neon signs in this blue hour period are very much alive to lure in patrons. There is a good contrsat betwen the in the shadow and the still lit sky.
