[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here I liked the parallel diagonal lines of the cocktail glass & the yellow boomerang, which also stood out well against the blue sky. I can attest that the blue sky in Vegas is real, & not photo-shopped. So all those jetplane shots that Eleu uploads, are 100% authentic!

Taken in The Fremont Street area north of the famous 'Strip' with my old film camera using Fuji film.

Hi Chris,

The buildings are helping to frame the artwork. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the cocktail glass and of the boomerang. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.


Ciao Chris, lovely composition with fantastic blue sky, splendid light and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Chris :)

These colourful, street decorations are so typical for this city.
Beautiful colours and light , very nice composition,

Perfect realization and very showy.

Smart capture showing the diagonal lines of glass & boomerang. Beautiful sharp colors and focus. I would have taken out the tree branches on the top left and on the right. TFS

Hi Chris,
Beautiful street commercial decorations against such a blue sky.
Good lighting although part of the street is in shadow.
Nice vertical frame which suits.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Nicely composed with the parallel lines as you detail. The colour and details are good.
