The dancing-water show outside the Bellagio hotel is really the only one worth seeing. This photograph was taken at about 8 p.m, after sunset — Muscionico used the artificial lights of the fountains as his sole light source. To freeze the motion of the water, he set the shutter speed to 1/400 second, and used a wide aperture (F1.4) and a relatively high ISO (800). To keep everything in focus, he walked back about 50 feet from the other visitors and set his zoom to 35mm, to compress a wide scene into a narrow plane.
