So think yes for this…
Vegas!!!!! (should not need much description!)
Giant pyramid with laser beams
Replica Cities, inside and out
Gondolas of LV or Macau’s Venetians
Dancing fountains of LV’s Bellagio and Macau’s Wynn
The golden lions of LV or Macau’s MGM Grand
Bally’s, Caesars, Stratosphere, Sahara, Circus Circus, Binions etc etc etc
Will also accept Atlantic City (CasinoHotels/Vegas-y parts only, Caesars, Taj Mahal, Ballys etc etc etc) No boardwalk shots unless it contains PREDOMINENTLY one of the casino hotels.
Will also accept the Cotai Strip in Macau, along with the MGM, Wynn (and Bellagio Style fountain thereof, Lisboa hotel would be OK but that’s as far off the Vegas topic as would be accepted. No streets/blocks etc of Macau/Buddha statue etc, this is just for the Vegas like parts.
This just gives people from various locations a better chance of having something acceptable. While I am lucky enough to have gone to all 3 places, I understand that there will be people who have been to “none of the above”. :-)
OK…. NO NO NO:
No desert/mountain shots, must focus on the manmade madness
Nowhere that does not show the excessive madness of the cities… random shots of people and streets and so on that have no relation to the challenge will be removed.
No illegal shots (zooming in on blackjack tables or other things that should have got you kicked out of the casino if not Vegas, anything depicting drugs or violence)
Random amusement arcade strips on beaches. Just because on, for example, Great Yarmouth beach, you can see Circus Circus, Flamingo and Golden Horseshoe next to each other along with a Subway sandwich shop and something else, does not mean it’s ANYTHING to do with Vegas. Anything like this will be removed immediately.
As close to straight out of the camera as possible please. No composites at all. No superimposed images. This is the photography challenge group NOT the photoshop challenge group. Thanks!
WORK THAT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A PHOTOGRAPH WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, even if it originally started as a photograph!!
Note: Please don’t be disheartened if your image is removed from the challenge, you can always ask us why that happened, but the usual answer starts with the challenge description – please read it :-)
Please vote for your favourite(s) that fit the theme, as many as they are. Every vote counts!!
August Voucher (so yes, we will be VERY strict in moderating!)
