[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The last time, sorry...

I met him last year in Barcelona on the Rambla.
It was quite surprising because I never thought it's possible...
He was making a speech to the crowd trying to wake up the spirit of revolution.

..and I, passing by, felt that this moment have to be remembered ;-)

Ok, it sounds too good to be truth, it was only a street artist acting Che. I just made a shot of him. Changed few things in ps but not too much.

I'm waiting for Your opinion:)

PP: levels, curves, changed background but just a little bit.

I think it is a good photo the grain gives a retro look of the time of the Cuban revolution. I don;t know it was your plan...but a good overall photo Lukas.


Viva Che! A nice portrait of the man.
I would have increase the contrast a bit more for more effect but an otherwise very nice shot. Well done Lukas!

bardzo wymowne:) przecudne Łukaszu:) kawał dobrej roboty!

Nice shot, the grainy effect is very good and the composition very good.

I like this street portrait.
