Here's the second of my desert shots, and while this is not quite as dramatic as my previous image, I do like this one too: not least because it gives a much better sense of scale than the previous one. Oddly, for me at least, this one was processed almost entirely in Camera Raw (other than a bit of cloning and a mild vignette).
If you're interested, the original is here:
On a related matter: I had a great time at the Gulf Photo Plus Fotoweekend, not least because it was an opportunity to meet up with some old friends – Bobbi Lane, Chris Hurtt, and Robin Nichols (my fellow instructors); Mohamed Somji and Hala Salhi (the event organisers). I also met David Tejada: a first time instructor at GPP, and an all-round nice guy (if you're not familiar with his work, take a look at his website or blog). I'd also like to say a big thank you to all the people who attended my classes: it's always a pleasure to teach enthusiastic and talented students :)
