This is a shot of the new Integrated Resort known as Marina Bay Sands IR.
This resort wil hold one of the two casinos in Singapore. The first casino has already opened in Sentosa (Resorts World Sentosa-RWS) in Feb 2010.

wow !! Thanks for the votes and the excellent score. Thoroughly delighted.
I guess there were a lot of voters who were trying to figure out if this was done with advanced editing.

Well it was done per the Basic rules. 4 important steps I did :
1. retrieved as much data when opening with Raw converter (shot in raw)
2. In CS3 , retreived details in the shadow areas using Shadow / Highlights
3. Used Topaz Adjust to adjust the overall exposure , details , contrast & saturation.
4. Finetuned again using Selective color focusing on the Black, Neutral, White channels

I would like to thank my wife for accompanying me, so far she has been my lucky star !!! Two outings with her has resulted in a Blue & 6th
