This was taken during a trip to Adu Dhabi with my good friend Catalin Marin, just before the start of this year's GPP event. I didn't think about processing it until yesterday as while the scene was interesting – it's not often you come across a drive-through shisha in a car-pack – the light was terrible and the background was a mess. After playing around with it though, and dropping in a new background from the same trip, I think it works a lot better. It's not one of the best shots I've ever produced, but it was certainly interesting to work with.
