Hello MAlgo ,
What an excellent composition ! The big blue door is an important element , but the presence of the three men and the lonely girl non each side was a great opportunity .
Perfect framing .

Hello Malgo,
An excellent capture of these three men and one woman sitting on the small step in front of the large blue door, which, along with the lamp, makes a very nice background. A good capture from daily life.

Hello Malgo,
This is a typical "emka left-over" photo. I quote György from yesterday: "Nothing special refers to an officially non-existent category /---/. It doesn't refer to the quality, but to situation, which is an everyday scene". He expressed it well. I find this kind of photo so much more interesting than most churches, palaces and temples. Well, you know that already... ;-) But it doesn't just tell us something about daily life in Havana. It is also a very neatly composed and cropped photo with pleasant, well matching colours. I do wish you would search your achive more often. I have to add this to my favorites. ;-)
Kind regards,

Ciao cara Malgo, lovely composition with nice sitting people and fantastic door, wonderful brighi colors, splendid light and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Malgo,
A well framed daily life image, but also an interesting study in colour and texture. The girl busy with her smartphone, what else, is nicely juxtaposed by the three elderly men chatting. Thanks for sharing.

Ciao Malgo,

On dirait le texte d'une chanson très populaire dans mon enfance : les hommes d'un côté et les femmes de l'autre. Une simple porte pour les séparer.



Dear Malgo,

I really like this photo: its simple, basically it is dominated by a mere wall and the people seem very small compared to it and the great blue door. On the other hand, as a whole, it works really fine.
I added it to my fav list.
Best Wishes,

Ladna scenka z kubanskiej ulicy.
Swietnie wyeksponowane niebieskie drzwi - ciekawa kompozycja.
Te zielone drzwi w warsztacie juz nie sa tak imponujace, ale dobrze ze je tez pokazalas.

good evening to you malgo...this is a very pleasing shot to look at..composition is just right,and this big blue door adds to it! tfs dale

Hi dear Malgo, a great world traveler!

Wow this time you seem to transit in cuba on the back way from China. This is very impressive postcard, simple composition abut that is why so appealing full of much implications.

All the best and have a good day! Takero

Hello dear Malgorzata and
have a nice time
just simple but interesting
the blue color draws our immediate attention
but here there is a dynamic contrast between
the young lady and three men
clever timing

Witaj MAlgo,

Hi Malgorzata
Oh Cuba, mon rêve , qui pour l'instant restera ainsi......
Très belle composition, les hommes d'un côté et la fille a la tenue plus européenne, la grande porte bleu attire le regard, belle version en WS

Hello Malgo
This kind of minimalistic compositions of facades gain often a lot in charm with some people in the scene. The main picture is very special with the three old fashioned man on the right side and the modern girl on the left side of blue door.
Two excellent pictures. Great job, Groet Rob

Hi Malgo
Wonderful composition, which reminds me of a painting concept, everything so well located, the old door, the lamp, the three characters on the right, in lively conversation and the girl alone on the other side talking, I guess with the phone.
Colorful, sharp and bright are perfect.
Well done. I like it.
Have a good day.
Best regards.

P.S. The theater room was not open for visitors, only the hall and cafeteria.

Hi Malgo
ok Malgo, now your're going to make me want to post photos from Cuba!!!!!!! I still have many more to show :)
you shouldn't tempt me like this haha

such an effective crop. just right above the door and just around the people sitting. love the contrast in the people too. as well as the large oversized stones in the wall.
the blue door reminds me of classic Blue Doors we see in Tunisia. its a wow photo for me

Hi Malgo,

Excellent luminous blue door with iron gate!
The door is BIG compare to the people even if they stand up!

Very nice fine detail of the shot


Ciao Malgo
bella foto, ben composta e con bei colori.
Ottima la contrapposizione tra i personaggi di destra e la ragazza, lo sfondo è splendido, la porta blu e la lampada sono perfetti.
Buon we

Hi Malgo,

Missed this one. A nice contrast between the lonely woman at left on her mobile phone and the 3 m3n at right in conversation. The blue door makes a good divider. Tfs!

Hello Malgo,
Nice minimalistic composition showing a daily life scene with an elaborate grate over a splendidly blue door. I just wondered how it would look with everything but the door in B&W and uploaded my experiment to the workshop, I hope you don't mind.

Oi, Malgo!

O enquadramento é muito bom, assim como o chamativo azul da porta. Interessante o contraste da mulher, bem vestida e que parece estar ao celular com esses três homens mais simples.
Foto interessante!

Dear Małgorzata!
Piękne zdjęcie. Trzech miejscowych z lewej, a z prawej turystka, ta z Wenus, ci z Marsa. No i niebieskie drzwi. Świetna praca, naprawdę ma klimat. Efektowny kwadratowy format.
Well done!
PS. A o co chodzi z tym cytatem ze "Stawki większej niż życie"?
