Djemaa el Fna waiters

Marrakech……what a delightful and chaotic city and what a fascinating blend of Arabic, Berber, European and West-African influences. And it all comes together on the famous Djemaa el Fna (جامع الفناء) square. Especially at night things get really exciting there when it becomes a combination of a giant open air restaurant and a multiplex street theatre full of musicians, dancers, storytellers and snake charmers.

Displayed here are waiters and cooks - it’s the end of the afternoon and they had just set up their movable restaurants and were anticipating the dinner rush that soon would follow.

Some more info about the square is here: Djemaa el Fna
Next pic: the square at night.

The PCS3 work flow: I altered the saturation, contrast, curves and levels for the whole pic and some elements separately, using different layers, enhanced the edges, USM-ed, added a frame and resized and did a gentle USM (1,1px, 22%) again.
