Romance, Las Vegas

Black and white picture of a couple watching the Bellagio fountains in front of the Eiffel Tower, Las Vegas

Romance, Las Vegas (October 2010)

A couple watches the dancing fountains of the Bellagio, while the Eiffel Tower glows in the background. Not a bad amount of romance for a place known as Sin City!

  1. Still oen of my favourite locations on the planet for excess and fun, when I want to blow off some steam and grab some street shots. This is a wonderful image that throws romance into sin city, and why not.

  2. Great shot! However, (small crit) I think I would like the bottom area to be darker as I find the lower left corner to be drawing my eye and then I see those two small silhouettes and I begin to wonder why they are there, etc. When I put my hand over them, my focus returns to the romantic couple. I also very much like the B&W processing…very elegant!

    • Thanks Tracy, and thanks for taking the time to leave crit – it;s much appreciated! I was wondering if anyone was going to remark on those two silhouettes – I deliberately left them in there, partly as a small nod to the fact that the scene was nowhere near as deserted as it seemed. But you may be right, they may just be a distraction from the main subject – I’ll have another play with this shot in the future.

      • Interesting thought. What do I know?? Some might say the two small silhouettes complete the composition triangle: the two small silhouettes -> to the two lights -> to the tower -> to the main couple – >back tot he two small silhouettes. Hmmmm…..does give one something to ponder, now doesn’t it?
