Thank you Lisa. I would have liked to have seen that exhibit, too. This glss is in the lobby of the Bellagio in Las Vegas. It is on the ceiling, I just about strained my neck looking at it so long. It's absolutely beautiful.

Sherry --

Beautiful capture. We currently have the Chahuly exhibit here in Pittsburgh. It's outstanding -- and quite different during day and night viewings. Lighting is spectacular.

Thank you Susan and RC. I do feel that I cannot take full credit for the beauty and colors in this image. Dale Chahuly created this glass, I simply photographed it. I did add a small amount of the Fractalious filter, but the full credit goes to Dale Chahuly.

Congrats on your win! I live in Vegas and see this about every 3 months or so when they change the flower exhibit. Do people realize the glass is on the ceiling and not really a exhibit? :) Great use of the filter on this!

Tammy, I would love to see the different flower exhibits. I saw it in the fall. I could've spent all day there! I don't know how many people know that this glass is on the ceiling. It's absolutley incredible. I nearly got a crick in my neck for looking up so long! Thanks for the congrats!

Beautiful color with an abstract look. I went to the Bellagio when I was in Vegas, but just barely got there and looked at part of it and had to leave because I had reservations to attend a comedy show back at the MGM Grande. It's been quite awhile since I was there, so this may not have been there then. I didn't see it anyway (too bad!) Congrats on your win!

Thanks Carol. This glass is so beautiful. It's in the lobby. In the arboretum, they have more, but the display changes seasonally. It's a 'can't miss' site to see! I hope to go back soon.
