Gondola Ride on the Venetian Grand Canal, Las Vegas

Gondola Ride at the Venetian Grand Canal, Las Vegas
5DMKII+16-35mm, 1/8 at f/5.0, ISO 100.

I always post my photos on Flickr, Facebook, Camplus… but never on my blog, so I thought I’d start to share more of my shots here, for those of you that still use a feed reeder :P

Vegas is certainly an interesting place to shoot. There is no shortage of colourful venues… The Venetian is perhaps my favourite place to shoot… It’s so faux fabulous in such a deliciously tacky way, you can’t help but snap hundreds of picts.

The lighting was uber crappy and dark, so I actually set up a 3 exposure HDR shot, but there was too much movement with the two boats, so I ended up using the darkest shot and fake HDR’d it in PS. The image isn’t tack sharp… something I couldn’t see in frame when I shot it, but I can’t go back now, so I’ll have to live with it… curse my perfectionism :|

    Cool shot. I love HDR’s. Even the faux HDR’s as long as they’re done well and this on certainly is. Would love to know your PS recipe for this. Assuming you used a tripod for the original 3 shot?

    This is my first time visiting your blog. I like. Ticky, tacky sharp and all. I think perfectionism is a flawed concept.

    Thanks for sharing it here (I’m one of those still using a feed reader haha). At this size it looks sharp.

    So nice to see you posting on your blog again! I was starting to worry that with all your other new ventures the blog was in permanent hibernation.
