Casino Christmas Memories

Nikon D80 18-135mm @ 18mm ISO 1250 1/45 f/9.5 (-2.0 0.0 +2.0) Lr3 HDR Efex Pro

This is the registration lobby of the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, two days before Christmas.  “Leo The Lion” normally presides without the holiday glitz.  I had a tough time dealing with all the noise in the blacks, and was not able to eliminate it completely during post processing, but I liked the combination of color tones, and the overall tableau of the scene, so decided to share it.   Like most everything recently this was hand held.  If I had it to do over, I would use a tripod and set the ISO much lower, but then I don’t think the humans would cooperate and remain still long enough.
