A cracking set with v6 my favorite

v6 for me too - great range of colours and detail throughout the whole picture. Well captured. The rest are fine too - some interesting compositions, particularly the symmetry in v1 and v3. v5 makes for an excellent post-card shot, and v2 is a "decisive moment" capture, well seen.

A fine eclectic set, and v3 is a clear stand out for me.

A fine series. I'd love to see some subtle HDR added to V1 to bring out the shadow detail.

I started off wondering why you had led with V1, which is at first sight the most austere, least personal image of the set. But then I looked further into it, and followed the little figures, all concentrating so intently on the moment.
V3 is my choice here, in that it's closest to how I see things. Glimpses into people's lives, on three different levels, within a satisfyingly correct set of verticals and horizontals.
One of my university tutors was Germaine Greer. Something she said around about 1969 has stayed with me all my life. 'We think of a 'slice of life' as something random, informal, unplanned. But a slice is a very precise geometric shape selected from the whole.
I do like that predatory shadow in V4 too. Light needs shadow.
Which is also why I wouldn't follow alansnap's advice immediately above this...

I would have to travel back 10 years in time and take a dozen more exposures Alan. I do have some HDRs of other Havana places I will upload.

Its so hot, - no air con in public spaces in Havana. They are everywhere, but only operate when allowed, and the power is on.

Beautiful set..I always love this place..but never managed to visit there. I watched a program about the Buena vista social club once and bought their CD in Beijing..Grin I wonder how they are doing now.
