Love the mood you captured here. Magical time of the day. The image showing the local scene of everyday life for the people in Cuba. The backdrop provide just enough essense of the location and focus on the fisherman depicting part of their life. Perhaps just for fun, or actually as a source for food. I don't know how life has changed there. Was it as bad as it use to be? I was considering a trip to Cuba. Is it worth it? As for the photo, technically all is fine and good composition. Thanks

As a baseball fan in America, I've always heard of stories of kids in Cuba playing baseball with makeshift equipment. But your series on Cuba really adds some vivid images to my head. And this photo just sums it all up. Very nicely done.

I didn't know you could chose between Peppermint or Strawberry flavored water polo... obviously this is the menthol league training.
I like the bike in the first plane, I think I would have composed the shot exactly like you did, leaning on the foreground frames (it kind of reminds me one of my cricket shots).
