[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A small group of us decided to wander the streets of Cuba and get of the beaten tourist path. We ended up in a regular neighborhood where people were living on the street. There were still a lot of houses damaged from the last hurricane, but it was also good to see that many were repaired or under repair.

This shot was taken with the sun almost straight in front of me. By using the CP I was able to reduce some glare which also gave the effect of limiting colors. I was standing on top of a hill so the perspective may looks strange.

Hi Niek,
Interesting linear presentation of this poor urban scene. Dont seem like much color an joy with the buildings in need of maintenance and the hanging electrical cables.
