Twitpic of the week
This week was another tough one.  Lots of great pics to choose from but the winner couldn’t be denied because it looks like a damn oil painting.  This week’s winner is @njphotog201 for taking the very common Cosmopolitan photo from a balcony of the fountains of Bellagio and north-mid strip and turned it into art.  I’ve no idea what filter is being used but the colors on this thing are fantastic.  Bright blues set against white, both in the fountains and the sky. Lush greenery surrounding the attraction and Cromwell’s exterior color really stand out as well as well.  Capped off by the newest larger-than-life addition to the landscape, the High Roller.  You really get a sense as to how well the high roller fits in with the Vegas skyline, if only because its something that is only in Vegas.  It takes exceptional skill to make this view look different from hundreds I’ve seen posted since the property opened.  Well done and thanks for sharing it.
