I asked security the night before if I could take pictures in the casino. He told me I could in this casino as long as I did not get up close to the slots as they were tumbling. It was earlier in the morning and security was watching me from everywhere. So the best thing I did was to go up and confront them by talking to them. It would have been nice to get the tripod out and take pictures of people but I think that would have been pushing it a bit.

Quite the game, I feel a wider angle could've done somethign for your composition.

A game lots of us would like to win. Photo is a little dark on my monitor. And where are all the people?
05/25/2002 08:42:00 PM
But I couldn't afford to insure/drive it unless I won ANOTHER jackpot!

Good exposure in a tough situation. Did you have to get permission to shoot there? Signpost detracts, but I don't guess there was much you could do about it.

Nice composition
05/23/2002 04:29:00 PM
Too much reflection on the top half of the photo.
05/23/2002 08:37:00 AM
i think i would have liked more of a focus on a specific slot machine than the car. also, the lighting isnt very good. it feels like a snapshot taken as you were leaving the casino.

Ahhh, reminds me of my wedding in Las Vegas!
05/22/2002 07:13:00 PM
mmm.. pretty car...
05/22/2002 05:04:00 PM
Oh ya, Give me the money! Nicely done. Great framing.
05/22/2002 02:36:00 PM
Monte Carlo?
05/22/2002 01:15:00 PM
Not many people gambling today huh? I was asked to leave last time i took a camera in a casino!

I'd love to win that car. There's no one trying though. Strange folks. A player at one of the stations would've added a little more interested to the shot IMO. But well captured.

Heh....and I thought *I* parked creatively! ;-)

the post blocking the car is a hassle. Light reflections on the car and ceiling are a bit distracting too. Would have loved to have seen some old woman with blue hair playing the 3rd machine from the right :)

I don't know what it is about this photo. Maybe a cropping of the bottom black, or better lighting.

really nice car!! although we dont have this in singapore.
05/21/2002 08:02:00 PM
How were you able to get this shot...nice effect
05/21/2002 03:22:00 PM
I like how this looks like a fish eye shot, because of the way the slot machines curve around, even though it isn't. I'm surprised they let you take a pic in the casino -- but I also seem to remember a forum thread about something like that -- so maybe they made you stop. The midtones here seem a little dark. I can just barely make out some of the features that I would think should be a little more visible (like the chairs at the machines).
05/21/2002 11:05:00 AM
Lot of reflections here, but nothing you could do about that probably, they don't take away from the photo though. Nice job, did you win the car?
05/20/2002 11:53:00 PM
How did you get this picture? I don't know of any casinos that allow cameras. I thought the slots would make a good picture. :o)
05/20/2002 05:25:00 PM
That is a shiny car! CAN I HAVE IT!
05/20/2002 01:39:00 PM
Hee, hee, that's a game alright. :) FUN shot, good work. Hope you win a new T-bird.
05/20/2002 12:28:00 PM
OK Now I have the Sizz'lin 7 fever ! This is great:)
05/20/2002 10:08:00 AM
Surprised they let you shoot here. I really like the concept. Giving you an extra point just for having the guts to try it.
05/20/2002 10:03:00 AM
Do they let you take pictures in the casino? What time did you take this.
05/20/2002 08:40:00 AM
I thought of going to a casino but a friend convinced me they didn't allow photographs there. I'd also be interested to know what time you went that there weren't people playing the slot machines. I wonder what it would have looked like with people though.
