The Tower

Welcome back and thanks for your comments on the previous post. My stay here in Las Vegas is winding down and I will soon return home to regain my regular schedule. It has really been an awesome but busy time during the past several weeks, and I look forward to processing some of the many images I have to share with you. In this HDR photography post we have a look at the "Signature Tower" at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Designed with luxury and a non-gaming environment in mind, this is the very best of the good life.

The image below was taken while I was on the way to one of the pools on the MGM site. At the time, this stood out and shined through the trees one steamy hot morning, causing me to get out my camera.

This was a 3-shot bracket (-2 to +2) processed with HDR Efex Pro then pulled into Photoshop where the Topaz Adjust filter, "Dramatic" was applied. That filter is located in the Vibrant Collection and provides a consistently fine result.

Next, I decided to create a black & white version using Topaz's B&W Effects.

Well, from the city that never sleeps, that concludes this quick post. Until next time...
