Upon reflection I know the biggest impression that Las Vegas had on me was the architecture of the many hotels on the Vegas strip.
Here on the outside patio of the Venetian the columns standing together in the sunlight brought these patterns from the side viewpoint.

i'm so glad you went to Vegas, because it inspires new ideas in me for the next time i go!
great workmanship with this one, i didn't see this set-up when i was there, i guess i was thinking more wide angle shots.
this is creative, with the close up showing the small/finer details on the columns.
the lighting is great aswell, i know thats really important for you.

I like this composition with diagonal and good perspective, Paul! Fine Pov and clever crop. TFS!
Have a good time!

Fantastic, interesting viewpoint and the composition is excellent. Beautifully sharp, and very nicely lit. Shooting when the sun is side-on has really brought out the textures and the detail of the carving. The lighting in this is magical, showing off all the fine detail. Strong vertical lines balanced by the diagonal line and the warm light on the columns nicely contrast with the soft shadows areas. Excellent piece of photography, Congrats

Graphic and elegant shot very well developped. Perfect light!
PD: Sorry I've got no more points!

Excellent graphism in this architectural detail shot... The diagonal works well and so does the progressive blurring towards the right side of the picture.
Bright, sharp and clean work

Fine observation & composition. Great shadow contrasts.
Fine fakes from Vegas!)

Perfect graphical composition. Geometry of architecture (even it's just a kitschy copy). Well done, have a great weekend.

Your shot is a pice of art itself!
The columns seem to put them all in proportion as the Roman cohortes, ready to defend and to attack!
Very well done!

Excellent use of lighting, (I know lighting is key for you) giving the columns detail more drama. I like the way the rule of thirds shows up diagonally. Seems like you took quite a liking to the architect in Vegas. It is interesting design and scale down there.

Venetian columns in Las Vegas have been perfectly captured with the excellent framing and sharpness. Compression effect by your favorite lens has a strong visual punch. Superb work.
Have a nice weekend

C'est une belle composition, avec une belle diagonale qui crée une zone de lumière et une zone d'ombre. J'adore l'effet graphique de la répétition. Bravo.

Beautifully arranged shot - the geometric arrangement is very eye catching. Nice DOF and use of light and shadow.
