MIX @ THEhotel

High atop THEhotel in Las Vegas is MIX a lounge and nightclub. It’s northern view takes your eye up and over the Strip and all the casinos and hotels concentrated and sprawled across Las Vegas Boulevard. I had an opportunity to bring the gear with me to the top and shoot from inside and out at sunset and shortly thereafter.  I’ll be posting a few shots of the Strip within the next few days, but this HDR shot was my last one I took before getting on the exterior elevator and heading back to “street level.”

5 frames bracketed at 1 EV a piece and in Post I had to correct for some distortion caused by shooting at 24mm.  To make the lights of the city really pop I added a Curves adjustment layer, pulling up the mid-tones to make the outside buildings a bit more pronounced. That was about it… I do like the reflections in the glass and the glowing light “things” by the windows.

Almost makes me wanna bust a move 🙂
