A Holiday Visit to Casino Niagara

Carrie and I visited Casino Niagara in the middle of a road trip from New York City to Canada and the Adirondack mountains. It was Labor Day weekend, and I just wanted to play a little blackjack.

Unfortunately  the casino was understaffed and the only open tables were $50 minimum bet: so I just pulled a few one-armed bandits and went to check out Niagara Falls instead.

Photographing the Lobby of Casino Niagara

While you are not allowed to take photographs inside casinos, there were no rules about pointing my camera upwards in the domed lobby of Casino Niagara. Though the above photograph has been rotated 90 degrees, I do like the original version for completely different reasons.

So, my question is: which version do you like better?

Would you have rotated it? In my opinion, the rotated version gives the photograph a more abstract feel. Thoughts?
