I live in the desert and there's a Casino called the Mirage but...I don't recall seeing anything as cool as this. I gotta get a new desert! 10

Wow, I really love the colours in this one. And the calmness of the water. Great composition and excellent processing. One of my favourites.

Beautiful colors. My feelings are that this would be stronger if you cropped more of the water out and had more of a panoramic here. jmho though
