It seems you and Malgo were taking turns going to the same places, but not quite taking the same photos. It's always interesting to compare the different compositions various persons decide on. This one has great colors, a strong human presence and fine parallel curves (sort of). There doesn't seem to be a lot of activities going on, but maybe it wasn't exactly rush-hour. The indoor light is very nice anyway,

A very nice view of the well shaped volcano and a fine foreground. The road makes a very nice curve, and for some reason I always enjoy roads that disappear behind a bend. It's good to see some people on the road as well. The church is nicely placed and the red and yellow garlands are a fine detail. The light and colours of the photo are very good.

This is a graphically strong and dynamic photo. I sense trouble just climbing this road, although you may have made it look steeper than it actually is. Monochrome definitely suits old Victorian houses and dirty industries the best, so I fully agree with this treatment. It's an oriignal and impressive shot.

Ja, detta är verkligen en fantastisk utsikt. Jag undrar ofta om människor som lever så här njuter av naturen, eller om de är alltför vana vid den. Det röda huset och de gröna tonerna i förgrunden balanserar varandra mycket fint. Island ser alltid fantastiskt ut, men också väldigt kallt och vått och ensamt.

I think a lot of tourists, maybe most, will only visit places they have already seen on TV or the net. They wouldn't bother with looking for anything different. It is surprising, though, that a marvellous place like this seems to receive so relatively few visitors. Maybe the busloads had not yet arrived. The church and the residence of yes I know who look quite fantastic in this light and with your good exposure.
Everyday Havana by macjake (53850)

An old red car, laundry, faded colors of the walls, unhealthy-looking balconies. I agree that this photo seesm to sum up Havana quite well. If you had waited another few minutes there may have been a green car that would have matched the wall even better :-).
The WS shot is nice too, but this one is better.
PS I checked up an "unsharp" photo (not one of yours) and actually found a much sharper beta version when using Mozilla. In Safari and Google Chrome there was no difference at all. It's really weird.

It's a well timed shot, also considering the circumstances with superbly handled sharpness and light. The various expressions make me wonder if they are really enjoying this or would rather be somewhere else. I know for sure that I wouldn't like to be up there.
