This is a photo of my girlfriend Robyn while we waited for a cab outside a casino in Las Vegas.
I like the contrast between the the brightness in the foreground and the plain background.
The composition works because the elevated angle condenses the different elements well.
We'll see if Robyn comments on this photo.

Robyn looks as bored as I did when in Vegas waiting for my shuttle. Time goes by SO slowly in the airport.

I do like the vantage point. Her glowing skin is beautiful.

btw, I grew up in B'ham and went to AU.

Great angle, really like that and the color too! I hope Robyn likes it but so far she's a "no show", hey?

Tom- Thanks, I don't know if it was the fact that it was Vegas or just the position of the sun but that sunlight really was great.

Helen-I did talk to her about the post, she does like the photo so she is probably just lazy.

Thanks for the comments

I feel like a celebrity! ;) I'm glad you picked an interesting photo for my internet debut. I love the lighting - at that time right before sunset when the sun turns everything golden.

Thanks for the compliments.
I guess I should list what equipment I used.

For this one I used a 3.2 MP Canon Elph camera.

I've used a 20D with various lenses and a Nikon Coolpix 5400 also.

Nice magic hour light. As far as equipment goes, if you don't think it's important, than it's not.

Auf wiedersehen.

I like that description "magic hour", very true, a lot of my best shots happen then.

I think equipment is important to a point but that creativity and skill can overcome technical limitations.
