I went to the Venetian at 4:00 a.m. to get this shot without people, and it was surprising how many people were checking in and out, as if it was the middle of the day. Las Vegas truly is the city that doesn’t sleep. However, there was less traffic, so the security guards let me use my tripod. Usually they converge on you within a few minutes and tell you that no tripods are allowed. A tripod was vital for this image, because I took multiple different exposures then blended them together for a High Dynamic Range exposure.
