Jeff- I laughed till I hurt. This is just so dang funny and better be in the running for the gold. The title could'nt be any better and for any of us who have visited a casino, this is so true for us. What a find and what a presentation with gorgeous colors, a beautiful setting, perfect lighting. If anyone can make a Shi#%er look beautiful, its you. What talent.
Have a great day my friend, thanks so much for the laugh.

LOL, even better (funnier) getting the wide angle from your pov view, which gives the illusion there is actually nothing behind the door.

I thought they were fake first, but that's probably just the wide angle, making them look like just fronts. That would be very bad luck otherwise, if you really need one. Nice colors and composition!
