A charming oldie street scene full of character and unique only to Cuba. Excellent moment registered when the light and colour quality is at its premium. That gorgeous and mellowed chunk of classic Yank iron for me has more influence grabbing my eye than the out of place blue autos. A well thought out shot superbly capture. Congrats

A nice photo from a city looking very quiet. There's a good diagonal of parked cars, with at least the nearest one being of the kind we expect to find in Cuban streets. This diagonal, which also gives fine depth to the view, ends up in a very attractive white building, which at least from this distance seems very well maintained. I like the fine clarity and the vivid colors.

lovely composition with the old car in the left making a wonderful foreground. Interesting building behind with a unique architecture. The palm trees and pleasant clouds make a nice decoration too. Very well done!

Through your photo, you are allowing me to discover a place I haven't visited in Cuba, and considering your presentation, I would certainly like to go there. The architecture is outstanding, the more modest one on the side street, as much as the one featured in the background. You have cleverly placed the old car prominently in front, screaming Cuba at first sight. Well framed scene, with the palm trees balancing your composition.

Excellent shot, I can feel the light and the warm tropical air with humidity and the heat of the sun. Somehow you manage to get the shot without many people which give a peaceful mood thought the color and light suggest more liveliness. The old car, probably due to years of separation from the rest of the world, they seem to be stuck back in time, and therefore it feel like being taken back in time. Excellent photo with good quality, sharpness, clarity and good composition.
