The Hotel Casino Carrasco is a hotel and casino in Carrasco of Montevideo, Uruguay. Its construction started in 1912 and finished in 1921, after 9 years work. For decades it was a landmark of luxury for tourists visiting Montevideo. Because of eventual deterioration of the building, it was closed in the late 1990s. In 2007 started the bidding for a public contract for its restoration and operation. By the end of 2009, it was finally adjudicated to Carrasco Nobile SA, a consortium led by the Codere Group together with international investors Global Partners and AGG. They designated Sofitel of the French chain Accor as the hotel operator. The hotel re-opened its doors in March 2013 A video reconstruction (in Spanish) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9bLw6QN4D4

Your composition skills are too good so I assume there was something in the foreground that caused you to crop like this. A perfect process

I must have missed this one back then. I was in and out of the Hospital with my Father -in-Law suffering with Cancer. WOW! Beautiful processing and overall image. Looks like a Winner to me. Best of Luck.

@digicam I recommend watching the video of the restoration. I put a link back then. It is in Spanish, but on YouTube it can be translated.
