    I like the idea but the buildings leaning just doesn't seem right to me

    Thanks! It was a fun trip although I spent a little too much money. :confused:

    I didn't even notice that they were leaning! Thanks for pointing that out. I straightened it out a little with PS. What do you think?

    I tried to but I couldn't get the camera high enough to get the entire front end. It was the best crop I could do with what I had.

    Try the "perspective" tool (Edit > Transform > Perspective). Grab one of the top corners and pull out away from the center of the image. Once you get the buildings to where they look correct, hit enter. You may have to do some fine tuning with either "Skew" or "Distort". Play around with them.

    Really liking the straightened wide view of Las Vegas. The lean was what I was going to recommend fixing at first but looks like that's now been taken care of.

    The second picture seems to be a little overexposed or over-pp'd as those lights towards the top of the tower look really pasty.
