[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After 50 years of embargo, Cubans have had to turn to innovative ways just to survive. Cars are a good example. Except for the those used in public transportation and tourist trade, there are hardly any new cars in Cuba. The people have gone to an amazing length to keep the old ones running.

This one, a 1930's Ford was the one that we had for our tour of Santiago De Cuba.

Hi Sunil,
A nice display of these vintage cars with the FG model dominating and one can see every detail in it! Perfect back light management t obtain good exposure in the front of the car.
A beautiful sky matching the color of the second car.
Well done for this neat work.

Hi Sunil,

Lol at the title which appears to be very apt judging from both your images & some of Pierre's. Excellent sharpness, color, framing, saturation & pov. Tfs!

A nice capture from the old timers with amazing light and exposure, Sunil!
Good placement of the cars within a thin white-lined framed shot.
The colors are original and clarity is nice.
Well done!

Best regards,

Olá Sunil
Good sharpness and colors...I like this view of reality in Cuba. One of the things that came to my mine about Cuba are the cars and that´s why I like so much this photo...it is Cuba
