In the evening the streets are empty. Behind the door of the houses people start playing music and dancing. Stranger are welcome but the way they dance ... fantastic ..

I love the atmosphere in this scene. The grain suits it well. Nice colours.

although the shot is too noisy, it has an atmosphere,

I like the atmosphere and mood. Excellent composition. I do find the grain distracting rather than helping the shot though.

Very moody picture and interesting note.
The picture noise is a plus adding a natural grungy feeling to it.

"Cuba is my love"---i was singing this during all my soviet childhood.

I can hear the drums and the enthusiasm of the dancers and the music. It brings memories... well done. This has captured the joy of all.

I like this Saudek colors, and the joix de vivre is so authentic. Very nice.


You sure have captured the mood.
I like this very much.


Hoi Frans,
Lekker swingend en nostalgies plaatje. De korrel samen met de sepia kleurtoon geeft het een 'oude' impressie. Zit veel gevoel en stemming in deze foto. Prachtig!

:) Later...

Nice effect, it looks like an authentic shot. You really catch the mood of this nice scenario… Viva Cuba. KR Ricardo.
