    Those flat, well-lit streets are just begging for rubber.

    I hope you don't mind*, but I had a fiddle with your boat picture, and came up with this:

    [​IMG]

    (I perhaps went a little overboard with the sky..)

    1. Auto Levels
    2. Increased saturation in all colours except red. (made boat stand out tooo much)
    3. Blue Photo filter with gradiant at top.
    4. Warming Photo filter with gradiant at bottom, inline with Sand..

    My (limited ...) photo knowledge suggests that the image got a little washed out because of the UV light from the bright sunlight.


    * Will remove if you want. I never know whether it's good to fiddle with another persons pictures or not :worried:

    The roads are mental.
    Very few road markings.
    all roads are straight, no junctions, just the ocasional turn off and uturn every mile or so.
    Crossings arnt operational
    signs are ignored.
    EVERYONE uses their horns to comunicate
    No speed limit from what i gather, no fast/slow lanes, its just weaving in and out of traffic like a game of burnout
    taxis are EVERYWHERE, most cars from the early 80's with windscreens an optional extra.

    if you give me your email adress i'll send over the full size image if you want a play about with it,

    You're in Dubai?
    Would love to have a look there as well, the amount of advertising for the place in egypt was mental.

    We have a VERY good PR company. Not to mention a lot of real estate investment in Egypt and the Levant.
