An internal view within the pyramid. Although I did not use a tripod, I did rest the camera on a counter, & gently squeezed the shutter, for this time exposure.
"The Luxor Las Vegas is a hotel and casino located on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. It was one of the city's first fully-themed megaresorts. Ground was broken for the Luxor in 1991, that same year construction began on the Treasure Island and the current MGM Grand. It has an Ancient Egyptian motif and contains a total of 4,407 rooms lining the interior walls of a hollow pyramid and contained within twin ziggurat towers that were built as later additions. The hotel is named after the city of Luxor (ancient Thebes) in Egypt, the site of the Valley of the Kings, Karnak and Luxor Temples, and scores of other pharaonic monuments — but no pyramids."

Good composition. Neon and concrete in this artificial paradise. Very good angle of capture, very good light.

WoW! Kitschy beautiul! And you have made great use of exposure and warm tones. The human figures definitely add to the sense of interior volume.

excellente ambiance lumineuse dans cette pyramide dont j'aurais bien admiré l'extérieur. Une photo nette malgré un temps de pose sans doute long.

used well a technique I often do in such situations, well done.
The indoor's view of the Pyramid is awesome, but impossible to collect a full view - though i had seen once a wider scope with special lens on thios hotel.
Picture has a nice effect of the outside (??) light.
