Souvenirs, Handcrafts anyone?

Still at the Resort ,the Paradisus Rio de Oro resort . The Club Cubano is the spot allocated for artists to sell there products to the guests. They are exposing Monday to Friday only. Each day different material is proposed. And prices are not higher than the products you find at the Touristi Market in the village.

Late afternoon light as I was shooting against the sun.
With Photoshop CS, Image cropped, Adjusted tones, contrasts, levels, luminosity. Added frame & Titel with Photofiltre.

Have a great Day!

Hi Rob,

Very artistic POV, my friend! It's really great looking at the exhibition through the palm trees! Very colourful with nice details!
Very well done!

I like the feel of shotting into the light. I've been playing with it recently, but I haven't been able to achieve your effect. There seems to be a bit of a "painting" feel to this shot, too. It may have to do with the palms at the top and flowers at the bottom, or maybe it just subliminal because of what they're selling. Whatever it is, it's a nice feel. But is there a bit of a CW rotation (I'm trying to use the lines and ceiling of of the hut as my reference points, but I think the crooked palm tress may be messing with my orientation)?

Hi Robert,
I love the colours, the composition and the frame of this picture. This is really superb.
I am afraid they couldn't see the beauty of this picture.

Lots of colors in the pic, I like the frame and compostion

A Paul Eugène-Henri Gauguin painting! Very nice.
Bye bye

Hi Robert

Great composition. Excellent colors, very nice pp. It's like a painting! :)

Les couleurs, la lumière sont fantastique. Belle toile!

Ca me rapelle "Cocktail" avec Tom Cruise. Après ce film, je me trouvais un job de Barman qui m'a payée mes études et fait vivre pendant 6 ans. Sans parler des histoires qui s'y rattachent.

Merci de m'avoir fait revivre ces moments loingtains.



Wonderful shot of a part of Cuba and excellent framing.
Lovely colors.
Well done.
