One of the biggest problems I faced when shooting in Dubai was the almost constant haze – caused by the sand from the desert, construction work, and so on – and for most of the shots I've posted I've done my best to eliminate it. In this instance though, it wasn't a problem; i.e. the soft diffuse background works well. And you may remember that I also posted another football shot a while ago. That one was taken 12 minutes before this one.
On a totally different matter: this one was auto-posted as I'm currently on route to pick up Craig, after which we're heading down to Dover to catch the ferry to Calais: the first leg of our drive to Bulgaria. I'm going to schedule another shot to go up on Wednesday, and one more on Friday, but I should be back online by then.
In the meanwhile, if you want to know how Craig and I are getting on, I'm sure that Libby will be tweeting some updates as we drive down through Europe. Her twitter name is @libby_chromasia.
