Spring 2001, Havana vieja, Cuba (Old Havana)
Near dusk, a group of boys gather to play.
You can see background activity as part of everyday Havana. If you look in the background, on the right side of the street, you will also see some sheets hung there to dry.

Digital Dodging, Burning & Toning in PS6

for those of yer that keep complaining about the quality of the shot... this is NOT a digital camera, there is such a thing as grain, which when I developed the film, I pushed, in order to enhance such thing. The other reason why the grain is so apparent, is because photoshop's resampling algorithm has a hard time dealing with the grain pattern without "enhancing" it, which means that the grain looks larger in the resampled image than on the print itself...

Very nice. It represents so much Cuba. It's just the everyday things that makes the island and the people so special. Fav!
Hello :wave:
I have featured your *ArtistsForCharity print in my journal. Wanted to let you know :clap: it's a truly lovely photo.

i love the grain in this image, it enhances it!. i could tell before reading your explanation that it was film. i love film. it has a quality that digital doesn't. i don't care what people say, film has a certain look to it that is far better than digital.
