    i think for "drinking alone" it might look better if you made the guy the main focus of the picture like a close up portrait with the cigarette in his hand and minus the blur, otherwise i think it is too busy maybe? (i dont know, just my two cents)

    You work for the casinos? I thought they all had a 100% band on cameras being used on the gaming floor.

    How did you get them to let you take those photos inside the casino?

    Great pics btw, but I don't really like the focus on the persons face in the drinking alone shot.

    Thanks for comments. For "drinking alone", I did not put the man in the middle of the picture just because I did not want to point the lens to him. The exposure time was quite long and it seemed that he noticed me taking a picture for the bar.

    Oh no, I did not work for casino. Nor did I notice any signs saying that no photos can be taken in casinos. Actually in Casinos there are many beautiful scenes, such as the ceiling of Paris, and the bars in New York New York. Some casino staff did see me holding a camera and taking pictures. But nobody stopped me from doing that.

    mcwave, That is very odd.

    I had my camera over my shoulder just walking thru gaming floor at Stardust. There must have be a security person near me because I hear over a radio “Camera on floor”. I was fallow across the floor I saw the security personal watching me.

    Also had some friends who where at an Indian casino in Connecticut off of the gaming floor, they where told that taking photos was not allowed
