Las Vegas - a glamorous city in US. It is sometime called as "The Entertainment Capital of the World". The center of gambling in the US, Las Vegas is sometimes called Sin City due to the popularity of legalized gambling, availability of alcoholic beverages any time, various forms and degrees of adult entertainments. The city was founded in the first decade of the 20th century, and is a major vacation, shopping, and gambling destination. There are "Tunnel of Love Drive-Through Wedding Chapel" just for $45.
At the left you can see the Paris Las Vegas - is a hotel and casino on the Las Vegas Strip. This is a 1/2 scale replica of the Eiffel Tower and a neon sign in the shape of the Montgolfier balloon. More close up view of this hotel is here . There are several casino-hotels all through the street.

Hi Dipak - wonderful night shot of the chaotic colourful lights, the monumental tackiness of this city is nicely captured.

Excellent night shot. It is taken at the right moment when it has not yet become too dark and when it was a clear blue sky. Great conditions for a night shot. Very nice with the cars to the left. Superb job!

Dipak this is very nicely done. I love the detials nice and tight in the frame. Add to that the perspective lines of the roadway makes this a pleasure to see. Finally excellent details as well. A fine photo ...Good Work!

Hi Dipak. Yes I wish I had the opportunity to take a night shot like this when I was in Las Vegas. You've got good sharpness and low noise. The cars and headlights are both great adds. Well done Dipak!

Excellent perspective here as well as shooting time to show the night lights over a deep blue sky, I like tis debauchery of lights to be found in Vegas and the crazy mix of world and Disney architectures. I would clone the crane on top of the building to the right to further enhance the appeal of this nice photo.
Have a nice day,

There's only one Las Vegas! You have captured its spirit in this image Dipak. You don't give the exposure time but I'd guess it's relatively fast for a night shot because of the narrow DOF you used, and because there is no over-exposure of the lights. This allows us to see all the little details. A very well taken image.

I also like a lot to get photos of the cities by night, and this is really a very good one, with a good sharpness, full of details and light colours with a good composition and almost without noise, very difficult in these cases. Well done.

Nice evening shot of Vegas, lots going on, lots of colours, i could spent half an hour just looking at everything.
Vegas has SO many opportunities for photos, and you have an interesting one here.
