During a walk in Havana City. There are a lot of Jineteras ( young girls and boys who earn money by "selling their body") in the streets. Sometimes they are very young and even when it is not allowed by the police, you can see that it is a economy at its own. Especially at nighttime at the Malecon - the boulevard at the seaside- there is a real traffic. What i liked in this photo is not only to put this into the picture but also the typical gaze of the men ( international :DD) sorry men ;), and all the ingredients for Cuba : the old buildings without painting, the classic american cars and the cocotaxi - the small yellow egg-shape-taxi .

Scene very well seen : young girls in mini-skirts and waiting, unbusy men loooking them...or their skirts...and dreaming about, maybe ?
Good effect of light...and of shadows...
Just a little pitty you could not take entierly this beautiful, old red car and include it entierely in the scene.
Best wishes. Grazyna.

idd een leuke foto! Laat niet veel meer aan de verbeelding over want de foto spreekt voor zich. Dit samen met de typische cubaanse elementen geeft dit een meer gestyleerd karakter.
Groetjes en prettig wkd.

A very good street scene in Cuba, and a typical reflection of men....any nationality....who enjoy the view of pretty women. I like the image mainly because it shows the old buildings, old car and generally, the relaxed atmosphere of Havana....or what I could imagine in my mind, being Havana. A very good everyday scene.

The destiny of those young girls and boys is really tough, but unfortunately many people today have no chance to choose something better.
Nevertheless your shot is nicely captured and appears very realistic. The light is well balanced, and thus all the parts of the shot are well exposed.

Oui, c'est excellent ça !
Une scène superbe vivante avec les gars qui regardent les belles nanas passer dans la rue. La persective et la vieille voiture apportent un vrai plus à l'ensemble. Très bonne photo !

Under my point of view, one of your best picture.
Color and light are perfect. What can I say more? Bravissima!
Have a good night

Terifc shot Inn, full of atmosphere. You really cught that latino machismo perfect. I even like the way the frame loks hot and overexposed just past the car, it was THAT hot..

Excellent documentary, a precious decisive moment. I love the color.
Oh the charms of L'Habana! The wheel of time grinds slow here.

Hummm...! Sexy girls! Bad guys (also too many olden), this image is like a fragment of some movie, excellent indeed, compliments Inn, this is not a daily life picture this is a document, and I like it.
Have a nice week

in each country, the same scene : men looking at women : D
I think you captured well the atmosphere of the city here (even I never go there) and I hear some music in my head ("I like it like that"), a happy one.
Superb indeed! : )

Waouwww !!! That is a good photo
The girls, the men, the car
, the cuban ambiance..
Well done, that's a good work !!!
robiuk (10807) 2007-06-05 18:42
I like this one, Inn.
YOu were lucky to capture many basic
features of Havana in one frame and to
make it International at the same time.

interesting shot. very attractive. those men are looking at her butts... :)
richwm (1215) 2007-06-10 16:02
So many things going on in this photograph that typify that 'Cuban feeling'. The only thing missing from this Cuban shot is someone with a cigar!
The older men staring at the younger girls as they walk by is very well captured - none of them even notice you are taking their photo they are so hypnotised by these girls.
The classic car is perfectly positioned and helps to blocks out what would otherwise have been a very large area of overexposed road.
Wonderful buildings too and I like the smoke from the little yellow taxi. It's a pity this taxi isn't just a little further back so you can see all of it but it is a small criticism, everything else is excellent!

Hi Inn, that's a superb street scene, closed on the left with the car and on the right with the guys, and the action in the middle, great... Would have been so nice with a morning or end of afternoon light...

Inn Michiels in een van haar (vele) sterke fotografische momenten. Misschien een cliché wat Cuba betreft, maar alle elementen vallen prachtig samen in een beeld dat boekdelen spreekt. Je voelt de sfeer. En niet alléén doordat kleur en compositie geslaagd zijn...
TFS & groetjes,
