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. #5278097

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.

I love Chahuly, thank you for sharing, someday I hope to attend his exhibit, as I could never afford a piece of his work, but we can capture it with photography!

Sherry Karr Adkins level-deluxe March 28, 2008

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. #5712315

Tammy Espino April 11, 2008

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! #5776954

Sherry Karr Adkins level-deluxe April 11, 2008

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! #5777172

Carol Teal May 12, 2008

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! #5915477

Sherry Karr Adkins level-deluxe May 13, 2008

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. #5919306
