The "Shisha Boy" [Photomatix HDR + LightRoom]

I DONT DO SHISHA AND I HATE ALL SORTS OF SMOKES. IT'S VERY BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH, WHICH IS A GIFT GRANTED TO YOU BY THE ALL MIGHTY, ALLAH, THAT WE SHALL BE ALL ASKED ON THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT: "HOW DID YOU SPEND IT?"

We were going back to Cairo from Alexandria after a wonderful weekend. Then we stopped by in "Wa7et Omar" (Omar Oasis) to have some drinks. We had our time and then paid the check and then suddenly my photographic eye spotted this scene.

 

I politely asked the guy to take the photo and he gladly replied "sure, etfadal ya basha" ;)

 

I was lucky enough to find a table perfectly placed. So it became my tripod. Took my 3XP's using AEB and stored as both RAW and JPG.

 

HDR-ed and tonemapped in Photomatix and then moved to Adobe Lightroom for further enhancements.

 

It reminds me of "Prince of Persia" game...what does it remind you of?

 

 

Hope you like it... and in case you really do, please fave it ;)
