    Thanks for the compliments. On this trip I shot with a Nikon D7000 (a wonderful camera that is replacing my D300) with the Tamron 17-50mm non vc f2.8, and a Sony HX9V (only for the shots inside of shows as to not attract attention.) I shoot all my Nikon shots in Raw mode and process with Capture NX 2. I assemble the the slide show using Adobe Photoshop Elements. I wish that I could get rid of the jumpiness of the pans and zooms. I discovered the music during the Absinthe preshow and found that the artist was Esquivel. I expanded my Esquivel collection with music of the same genre, namely music from the late 50's to early 60's when stereo was being heavily promoted by record companies. I use Audacity (freeware) to edit the music so that it better fits my pictures. An interesting note: I recorded some audio during an early morning walk from Wynn to MGM using my iPhone. Along the way I was propositioned several times by ladies who were ending their previous evening's business. This is where the "I'm ready for my picture" audio came from. I am glad you enjoyed the video.
