Ehh, not quite…they are French doors by definition, and would appear to have a Parisian view…but in all reality, this was taken in an American hotel which was designed around an Italian theme. Confused yet? :)
If you’re familiar with Las Vegas, you already know full well what it’s all about. Take away the over- the-top touristy side and gambling aspects, and you’ll actually find, albeit ‘kitschy,’ a fun little trip around the world all rolled into one famous stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard…better known as The Strip.
Walking around the Bellagio Hotel/Casino there are numerous doors such as this, each one offering up a fun view to the outside “pretend” world. This was one of my favorites during a quick stroll through the high priced shopping gallery. I would have been laughed out of the fancy boutiques by the exorbitant costs and pretentious staff, but taking pictures was absolutely free of charge…and so I snapped a few along the way.
À la prochaine. Ciao. See you later.
Thanks for stopping by.

Well done idea, Jason.
Managed super the backlight effect, and view through the decorating window reveals a nice backyard and the ,onumental Eiffel tower on far.
Like it a lot. have a nice day.

Original view through the door and window, exposure and contrast of light are well managed, tfs.

There are many nice views in Las Vegas but I found it all together horrible. Everywhere they destroy something to build something new and more expensive. And of course all the casinos, not elegant with roulettes like in movies but the kilometers of one hand bandits and the poor people addicted to gambling and loosing their money. It is the image that I have in memory anyway. But here very nice, perfect composition like in Paris, with the Eiffel Tower behind the window. I posted a photo from "Venice" and no one noticed it was not the real one. There is some fun too.

Paris in las Vegas, seen through the glass of the iron door.
Sharpness and clarity are perfect taken.
Excellent composition, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Cela pourrait être à s'y méprendre.Jusqu'à ce que l'on observe attentivement les maisons autour de la porte à l'architecture complètement différente de celle de Paris. Mais l'illusion est belle et intéressante.

This could only be yours eh? When I heard you were up in Vegas I did wonder what we were going to see on your return, but I thought you would have taken a shot of something whilst dangling over a craps table! Tee-Hee! Nearly got that totally wrong…….
Thought for a minute it was a view from your room, but perhaps the Bellagio is a bit down market for you.
Nevertheless I like this shot and I was fooled into thinking it was taken in Paris so it works perfectly.

c'est à s'y méprendre! une bonne idée et une très belle présentation. Bien vu et très bien réalisé.

nice the view of the French style door as we can see through it a copy of Eiffel tower.Really in all of the casinos in Las Vegas someone can see a lot of famous copies from monument all around the world.

this is a very interesting photo, framed with such a precise symmetry and rendered as graphic as it gets. I see the graphism here as an intriguing medium between reality and illusion:) and think you have used all the elements, patterns and light available in a superb way. I like very much the contrast between the dark, elegant but also rigid patterns of the door and the sweet, warm and detailed view outside. There's wonderful sharpness and sense of depth, the definition of the outside colours is excellent and I like very much the little but effective space you left to the shadows on the floor. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

sei proprio sicuro che fosse gratuito? Magari ti hanno prelevato dei soldi dalla carta di credito.....
Non sono mai stato a Las Vegas, ma ho visto dei bei documentari e conosco tutte le attrazioni principali, come quelle che vedo nella tua foto o il vulcano, la nave dei pirati e il ponte di Brooklyn.
Hai avuto una bella idea e hai fatto un'ottima realizzazione.

Salut mon ami du Nord
French frame ( door) and french subject , opsss in Las Vegas
Luckily you are not like an american friend that told me
Why to travel abroad? The more interesting buildings are in Las Vegas where the weather is good
Like your vertical compositin , taken with care, in a vertical capture to match the subjects
Bon weekend avec du sport et sans Coke

This one is really great Jason!
The door makes here excellent frame and at the same time it makes the graphical impact very strong and eye-catching.
And thr Eiffel Tower in the BG-really amazing!
PS.You´ve been to Paris and didn´t let me know???it´s only 400km from Cologne:)
Fantastic shot my friend

Aha, the wonders of Las Vegas: Paris next to Venice, next to New York, all within a few hundred meters of each other. However, I agree with you, one can have a blast in Vegas without spending a dime on gambling.

En effet à première vue on s'y croirait! Excellente capture avec une lumière bien gérée, ce qui n'est pas facile à travers une fenêtre. J'adorerais visiter Las Vegas, peut être un jour!
Bises de Marseille.

An excellent view through the door and window.
Nice the French style door.
Sharpness and clarity are perfect taken.

Excellent capture with a well run light, which is not easy through a window. I will be there next March again . take care.
