This is a shot of Hamoud, our driver during the GPP Faces and Places Photo Tour to Oman that I ran with Bobbi Lane earlier this year. As you can see, he was a great guy :)

This is also the image I've used for this week's Mini-PSD as while the processing wasn't complex (just six masked curves), it did take me a while to come up with a version I liked. As you'll see (if you're a subscriber to our tutorials and download this file), the key to this image was Curves 3, the curve I used to adjust the bottom half of the image.
