Every corner is good for creating a playground in Havana . Unfortunately there are many risks if you play barefoot football. But it is only a small and regular moment of the game, while the boy looks at his foot, the other smiles ... In the background the classic, decadent but unique and colorful facades of the old city.

C'E' QUALCOSA SOTTO AL MIO PIEDE

Ogni angolo è buono per creare un campo da gioco all'Havana. Putroppo si corrono molti rischi, se si gioca a calcio a piedi nudi. Ma è solo un piccolo e regolare momento di gioco, mentre il ragazzo si guarda il piede, l'altro sorride... Sullo sfondo le classiche,decadenti ma uniche e colorate facciate della città vecchia.

Hello

The Cuban people have proven there resilience over the years. A wonderful image of making due with what you have. Awesome capture of life. TFS

Bonjour, cher Luciano,
L'image est très intéressante. Nous avons l'impression d'être transplantés dans un autre monde (un monde qui a cessé de vivre) ; heureusement que les jeunes sont là pour donner un peu de gaieté à l'ensemble.
Une image qui nous parle.
Amitiés.
Philippe

Dobar dan.
Lep pogled i trenutak, dobar tekst ...
Lepo pokazano mesto i stare zgrade, dobra kontrast i ostrina, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak sa mladima.
Lepe stare fasade i gvozdene ograde na terasama, lepo mesto za druzenje i igranje fudbala.
Zelim vam lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje.
Paja.


Good day.
Nice view and a moment, good text ...
Beautifully shown place and old buildings, good contrast and sharpness, nice colors, nice caught moment with young people.
Beautiful old facades and iron fences on the terraces, a nice place to socialize and play football.
I wish you a beautiful and successful day, all the best.

Hello Luciano, Nice scene from the football game in Havana. Beautiful although in dilapidated stet houses. Nice composition, superb sharpness and colours but for me a bit too much of HDR.

Salut Luciano,
Cela manque un peu de pelouse pour le foot ... bien vu ce cadrage avec ce terain de jeu et ces façades typiques de la ville, un grand besoin d'entretien et derénovation !

Hello,
What a background! As for the football, I've only played like this on the beach, never on the cement or street. Nice shot, great sunlight.

Daniel

ciao Luciano,
bella la composizione dello sfascio de L'Avana, forse un po' troppo nitida, sembra poco naturale. Prova anche ad aumentare la saturazione dei colori, dall'ombra sul terreno si vede che il sole in quel momento era leggermente velato, magari l'immagine, anche se risulta diversa, ne guadagna,
ciao, Giacomo

Ciao Luciano ,
Je sais bien que les habitants préfèreraient que leurs immeubles soient rénovés , mais quel charme fou que ces façades anciennes de la Havane. J'aime bien aussi ici le PP.

Looks like he might have stepped in some doggy doo or pigeon poo? The decaying splendour of the colonial era bg buildings is marvellous. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

Hi Luciano
oh man...this makes me want to hop onto a plane and re-visit Cuba right now! Lets go! I'll meet you there :)

what a beauty! love the decay, love the football game in the fg.
this is your BEST Cuba shot ever! cheers

Witaj Luciano!
A very curious scene from daily life.
Buildings make impression.
I like balconies.
Excellent frame, colors and light.
Well done.
Warm regards.
Krzysztof

Hello Luciano,
A very good combination of decayed Cuban buildings and human activity. "Nothing special" at its best. It's also a technically first class photo. Sharpness and clarity is perfect and the colours are wonderfully saturated. Every detail of this photo really stands out.
Kind regards,
Gert

Hello Luciano,
A delightful daily life composition from Havana. Better to be playing outdoors and taking the rough with the smooth than being glued to your smartphone. The background architecture though somewhat dilapidated still has the ability to charm. Excellent technical quality.

Bonjour Luciano,

Tu as bien capturé l'action des jeunes. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails des immeubles. La lumière embellit les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

it would be marvelous if these building were restored.once again they look like the old abandoned parts of salvador. nice flagrant of the daily life in this part of the town.

take care

jorge

Ciao Luciano,

Comme ne pas aimer cette photo. On voit très souvent cette situation dans les villes cubaines. Des jeunes qui jouent avec très peu et des maisons qui ne tiennent que par un petit fil mais qui offrent des textures spectaculaires.

Amicalement

Ciao Caro Luciano,

I always think that Cuba is like living history.
In the U.K. a lot of beautiful, old houses are now frequented by tourists who relive the past; in Cuba, the beautiful houses are still lived in as they always were ... though a little TLC might be needed!
You have captured an interesting scenario ... and I wonder what has been seen on the floor. This action all takes place against a very interesting, colourful backdrop.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Although main subject is football players here,
old and beautiful buildings r more attractive..
excellent shot..

Ciao Luciano, bella scena e apprezzoanche la nota, breve ma significativa, forse i cubani preferirebbero case meno decadenti e parchi giochi per i ragazzi, ma fotograficamente rende un gran bene, bravo, ciao Silvio

Hello Luciano,
This doesn't look like the best place to play barefoot indeed. I really like the combination of the playing children and the old façades in the background, they could really do with some maintenance, but there are many fine details to discover. Good lighting too.

Hello dear Luciano,
Wonderfull sceneery from Habana, perfect captured.
Those beautiful buildings at back are evidences of good old times. Unfortuanely left totally to their faith.
TFS and best regards

Hello Luciano,
I believe that nowhere else than in La Habana so many buildings do look that much weathered and dilapidated. So much that it has given the city a special charm.
In this excellent clear, sharp and colourful picture you present us some of these beautiful buildings. The football players make an attractive and interesting foreground.
BTW, has Cuba ever participated in the World Cup? I cannot remember.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Luciano,

Nice street candid, which shows e lot from the environment too.

Best Wishes,
Gy.

Ciao caro Luciano
bella e carateristica foto Cubana,
ottimi colori e bel scenario,
bella nitidezza ed ottimi particolari
cari saluti e buon mese con tanto fredo...
Costantino

Ciao Luciano
ma come? Un esperto di calcio come te non si rende conto che sta semplicemente controllando i tacchetti???
Una scena simpatica, ma che non sarebbe stata molto di più se non ci fossero stati quegli edifici sullo sfondo.
Bel colpo, mi sa che anche quel tocchetto di hdr ha fatto la differenza.
Saluti

Ciao Luciano,
nice the snapshot from the playing boys in this playground in Havana. Seeing someone all these beautiful old buildings on the backdrop,
all he feels someone is sorrow and frustration for this downfall.

Beautiful colour and detail in this photograph. The colour of the clothing and the life of the people and their activity contrasts well with the times gone by represented by the buildings.

Pas le top de jouer au foot a pieds nus, belle scène de vie, un bon travail du HDR qui permet d'apprécier les moindres détails des vielles façades, belle présentation
Belle soirée

Hello Luciano
An amazing picture with a remarkable beauty. Fascinating how these crumbling building can be so beautiful.
The playing kids in front complete this magnificent scene.
Excellent work
Have a nice day, groet Rob

luciano good evening to you..and hello.these old facades of these buildings are awesome,giving it real texture to this shot! love it..tfs dale

Hi Luciano.
A perfect image with these three buildings, which show a certain style of the first half of the last century, but at the moment they are a real ruin, their abandonment is total.
Sharpness, lighting, color, and the magnificent composition; they are all perfectly realized factors, in this perfect image.
Well done. I like it.
You have a good day.
Very best regards.
Luis.

Buongiorno Luciano,
The title is much different from the scene, a combination of a daily-life where those kids playing some were barefoot - and the old houses in what looks as a beautiful old style, but their grandeur days are over.
Have a nice friday,
Ike

Hello Luciano,

beautiful image of La Habana, the visual result is excellent, you did a great postprocessing work, I love the facades in the back, well done,

Have a good weekend,

Superb work.
Fantastic colours, fine saturation.
Amazing bright and light.

Interesting young men.
Very interesting old arcitecture.
Cuba libre!
Well done!

Ciao Luciano,

Fantastic shot! Colors and textures in BG are so atractive and the boys in FG in this large place did a great work in this beautiful image.

Warm regards

Oi, Luciano!

Foto bem legal desses garotos jogando futebol, apesar de o esporte não ser tão popular na América Central (mas vem crescendo muito). O conta=raste da foto está perfeito, deixando as fachadas bem mais interessantes. Luz e composição ótimas.
Muito bom!

Ciao Luciano,
This scene is so typically Cuban, and so beautiful. I like the gritty beauty of the old buildings, and the bright paint on parts of the facade. The children playing in the foreground is a great view of daily life. Very nice. :-)

Hi Luciano
Even in those poor conditions the façades offer a nice and colorful spectacle, due to the magnificent sunlight.
The right exposure and the best sharpness make a great picture.

Tfs & regards

Ciao Luciano,
very photogenic old stylish architecture, so characteristic for Havana I suppose.
Yes I think playing barefoot has its risks and I hope it is rather something left by a dog than something sharp...
The sport scene adds a lovely feeling of action in the foreground.
Great level of detail on the houses.
Beautiful reportage!!

Hello, Luciano!

Back to TE after a 10-day vacation without even approaching a computer, that's what I needed! The old aspect of these buildings make them such an interesting subject for the photo, they were captured with excellent light and sharpness! And the boys playing in front of it are great, adding much more life and interest to the scene! Wonderful image from Cuba!

Hello Luciano,
I like the sun-drenched scenery and the pockets of bright colors. The buildings may have been decadent at one time, but now they are dilapidated, which seems to be a common theme in Havana.
Regards,
MT
