Viewers of Bellagio's dancing fountain. Taken at 22mm, F8, 1/15s, ISO 400 and converted to grayscale using PS. This composition was shot as a result of not having positioned myself early along the fountain's terraces to get a "good" spot. So I step back behind the other viewers and included them with the shot and this is what it turned out.

Thank you for your comment on my photo "Awesome". This composition was shot as a result of not having positioned myself early along the fountain's terraces to get a "good" spot. So I step back behind the other viewers and included them, and this is what it turned out. I'm happy of the result and am glad you like it too. Thanks again. #1459631

This is a wonderful shot. I love it. I think this looks better than it would have if you had gotten there earlier. The water show is beautiful and you've captured it so well. #1477445

'Awesome' is certainly the best way to describe your shot. Brings back memories from when I was in Vegas a few years back. The fountain at the Bellagio was our favorite place. #1575147
