-----------------------------------------
Thanks to all for the "mostly" positive comments and interest in the shooting details. This was taken at Caesar's Palace Casino in Las Vegas. The image is on the back wall in the hall approaching The Beatles "Love"show by Cirque Du Soleil. The lighting behind the images of the players from the show is constantly and rapidly changing in a 60's psychedelic manner. The floor is off-white and extremely shiny. The ceiling is a series of dozens of oval reflective silver mirrors. This combination yielded the high quality of the reflection. The key here was patience. Only some of the lighting combination looked good. But this was a busy corridor, with people checking out the box office, the show store and the show art. Several shots were wrecked by the pedestrians and reflections of other flash bulbs from point and shoots and cell phones. It took almost an hour to get this--my favorite from about 40 shot. I will post some outtakes on my portfolio later. Thanks again.

Very 60's look. Were they laying down on something?

This is cool, but would have scored higher if you had brought your subject in closer.

I've no idea how you did this but it looks great :) Only criticism would be that it isnt completely centred with the black space on the left larger than that on the left
