I had been wanting to take this picture of the Vegas strip for over three years.
I originally took this type of picture from the top of the Eiffel Tower at the Paris Casino with a point-n-shoot camera. The results were ok, but nothing great.

The final image is a stitched HDR panoramic photograph, all the shots taken handheld.
Equipment used for this photo:
Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM Lens
