Bellagio is a luxury, AAA Five Diamond award winning hotel and casino located on the Las Vegas Strip in the Paradise area of unincorporated Clark County, Nevada, USA and a member of The Leading Hotels of the World. It is owned by MGM Resorts International and was built on the site of the demolished Dunes hotel and casino. The resort serves as the seat of the corporate headquarters for MGM Resorts International and is considered the main flagship resort of the gaming company.
Inspired by the Lake Como resort of Bellagio in Italy, Bellagio is famed for its elegance. One of its most notable features is an 8-acre (3.2 ha) lake between the building and the Strip, which houses the Fountains of Bellagio, a large dancing water fountain synchronized to music.

Hi Eleu,
Nice night shot, the ISO of 900 was a good choice to freeze the fountain without the flash but still keeping slightly blurred for a good effect. Nice PoV. Best wishes

Hello Eleu :)

I with emotion look at these fountains, because I remind me
my stay in LasVegas...miraculous remembrances!
Very pretty colours, you advised me with light perfectly.
Showy realization, it pleases me...congratulations!

With best wishes.

P. S.
I invite You to inspection from LasVegas my pictures :)

Hi Eleu,
This is a difficult shot when it comes to exposure. You have a bright light close to you and a lot of darkness around you. With the metering in your camera, the camera considers the entire composition to be dark and there for the lightsource will become over exposed. For this type of situation you need to trick the camera and overrule its decision. Try to find a average between the dark and light and use it for your camera settings. Except for that, the composition is pretty good, with the fountains leading the eye. I would have liked to see a little more room left of the Bellagio sign so it doesn't feel so confined.

Hi Eleu...I like the way you played with the light here...nicely constructed and balanced in the composition..nice work.
