I've had a really great time in Dubai this year - working with a good client, teaching at Gulf Photo Plus with an amazing group of photographers, and meeting many new friends - but it's time to go home now as I miss my wife and kids. The good news is that I only have one more meeting to go to tomorrow then fly home on Thursday :)

I've got quite a few more shots to post over the next week or so - a couple of HDRs, quite a few portraits, and a couple of experimental shots - but as my thoughts are currently pointing towards home I thought this was the most relevant to post tonight - a shot of a young girl taken down at the mosque in Abu Dhabi. My shots of the mosque are a spectacular failure, despite it being a really cool place, but I'm pleased with how this one turned out.

As for the post production: it was converted to black and white using the Channel Mixer (as described in my Black and White: part one tutorial), then contrast-adjusted and toned with a Curve.

I may post another shot before I leave Dubai, but it's more likely that I'll put something up when I get back to the UK. In the meanwhile, let me know what you think of this one.
