Quite many things must have been right for me in order to take this picture.
First, the Bellagio fountains usually start at night, which is too late, only on some special days
they start earlier. Also I really wanted a nice sunset which is almost impossible to get in Vegas.
I wanted a proper perspective, so the choice of the room was quite difficult too...
I got lucky on Thanksgiving Eve

I thought November was going to be a better month for me, but I turned out to be wrong again, so I guess it will probably be April or so before I can put up a decent shot in these threads. Still, I love the basic idea, so here is something random:

A big congrats to Bobu for a convincing win. And to everyone for maintaining such a high standard month on month - I have a "shortlist" of 10 browser tabs open now and am trying to pick just 3 to vote for...

Lightroom tells me i took a grand total of 3 "keepers" in November. One is in the WA for this week, this is one of the others. A bit of a change of style for me too:
