Good stuff. Very lifelike and they really draw you in. I think you could have done with another couple of under exposures to get those bright lights better. But overall, nice job.

Thanks!

Bynx- I actually have a few darker exposures. I think I might use one for the second image to get the blue color out of the three white lights.

I really like all of your pictures. And with the input and guidance of those like Bynx, I hope to do some amazing HDR's myself.

Thanks a lot. I may just take you up on that offer.

What an astounding place to shoot. And made for HDR. I just think the colors are too vibrant. Ive toned them back on the left half alongside your original. If you shot Raw file when you open them I think you should have a choice of WB. Try choosing Sunlight and see if that strong orange light will look more natural. Just a suggestion.

Beautiful. The lights near the roofline in the third picture really take it down for me, but they are all very nice and inviting.

Yes it was a great place to take some photos. I wish I could get more but i was only able to get about an hour in the first night we were there. The rest of the time was spent with the soccer team. This hotel had a very warm feeling. Many of the lights were Yellow with a mellow dramatic feeling. When I processed these I wanted to bring out the rich colors so I amped up the yellows and reds. I am very happy with the results and appreciate your edit and suggestion. I also took the time to work on composition and I think I did a good job (hopefully you folks will to)

I can see where those lights can be distracting. On the bright side of things at least they are on both sides of the frame so it has balance.

Thanks

Bynx- reworked a few of those photos. I think this is what you were getting at (correct me if I am wrong )
