I don't think this is what Chris Spedding had in mind in his song but the Cubans can always dream as we all do. Smile Another image from Havana.

Such a simple but effective composition and with the vibrant blues and greens sitting comfortably together against the more muted tones of the stonework and cobbles.

Had the song going in my head before I saw your link, Ann.
Very appropriate tone mapping treatment...works extremely well as you haven't tweaked it too much.

These pictures from Havana have the most wonderful colours and textures, Ann. Your eye is definitely key to the normal street scene becoming a fetching shot. This one is a prime example. I love the reflections of the wheels and the blue in the water too.

At first I thought I would've cropped a bit off the bottom so the pavement meets the corner in the bottom RH corner. But that would have removed some of the puddle reflection.

This is perfect, in my eyes.

Following viewing here and earlier uploads - I will warn Colin from our local camera club when he visits our house later this week - not to book any battles with your camera club unless they want a thrashing.

Here you used colour to good effect. Consistent uploads of top draw work and this one very much so.

your battered motorbike makes such a fine contrast against the (slightly topazed?) texture of the wall, the puddle and most of all the shutters. Love it.

It looks set up for more than Wallace & Gromit (Cuban style) action Ann, maybe old ex-army stock? I love what you've managed here the detail and the colours are beautifully crisp.
