A street in the historic center of Trinidad, where there is a great amount of old colonial houses, with their typical iron grids, many of which are still inhabited by the descendants of old families.

Colorful and luminous view of this place in Cuba

Una composicion sensacional, con esta sucesion de bonitas fachadas, a las cuales lo que mas las adorna, son las bonita rejas en las grandes ventanas, magnifica ese corte diagonal que hacen las casas respecto al cielo, que tiene un bonito color azul.
Muy buena la calidad de la imagen, tambien la nitidez.
Muy buen trabajo.
Disfruta un feliz domingo.
Saludos muy cordiales.

What a fantastic long row of small but beautiful houses, all in different colours and all with the iron grids with artistic patterns!
Beautiful colours, excellent DOF and composition.
Best regards, Paul

Boa perspetiva, Alexandre.
Interessante ver os postes de iluminação na rua.
Ademais, parece ser um local agradável.
macjake (57432) 2013-09-29 16:05
yes, there certainly are other cities in Cuba than Havana!
this shows the colorful cultural side for sure.
well done with the photo given the fact the light was a little strong.
and its always best to have some locals in the photo, as you do here too.
nice shot indeed.

Charming old architecture. I like the way you've composed this image with straight lines of the street. Good work.

Cuba a country that 40 year has, stood still through the politic!
The old iron grids give these picture an extra value.
You chose a very well angle this cares for depth and perspective.
Colours and sharpness are pleasant to look at.
Very well done.

quest'isola di Cuba dall'aspetto tipicamente coloniale è ben rappresentato in questa fotografia che si fa notare per la bella prospettiva che rende piacevole la composizione, ma soprattutto per i colori pastello dalle tinte molto delicate.
Una buona luminosità ed una buona nitidezza permettono di ammirare i dettaglio tra i quali degni di nota sono gli arabeschi disegnati dalle inferriate.
Un ottimo lavoro
Ciao e buona giornata

These old buildings with their colourful façades are very attractive and it is good to hear they are still inhabited. Your chosen point of view makes for a wonderful long perspective along the sunny side of the street. No people to enliven the scene but that is not necessarily a bad thing. A very well presented image with good light, colours and sharpness.
mohammad_H (9532) 2013-09-30 9:44
Good point, and along the deep background, eye-catching and spectacular, unmatched clarity and good quality blue sky and clouds
Best wishes to you

very nice the creative perspective as the architectural style of the historic buildings of the capital with their typical iron grids to are the eye catching of the scene.I like the excellent light and colour management as the beauty of them.
pierrefonds (57973) 2013-09-30 16:40
The length of the street is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is allowing me to see the colonial architecture of the houses. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
abmdsudi (44308) 2013-09-30 21:32
Impressive shot cleverly observed and composed with a mystery fig, I love the perspective, depth and view point when the intersection of diagonal lines intersect at the lower third! This is a rather quiet deserted relaxed street scene with historic feel but the bright colors somehow drag the eyes in deep down the charming old time scene full of character and probably unique only to Cuba. An image full of colours and interest so well shot. Congrats and tfs

Unique old architectures, even I can't distinguish those are doors or windows on the wall, attractive colourful houses, nice street view under hot sunlight, distinct photo, good shoot.
josepmarin (57831) 2013-10-01 2:52
este tipo de arquitectura colonial siempre me ha fascinado, por su sencillez, su sobriedad y su funcionalidad.
En este eficaz encuadre podemos apreciar todos esos aspectos en una dinámica y profunda perspectiva diagonal, así como los bonitos colores de las fachadas de las casas.
Luz y sombras aumentan el interés estético de la composición.
tedesse (25133) 2013-10-01 10:35
Excellent POV and composition, fantastic perspective.
Wonderful colors and light, excellent sharpness.

What an amazing street.
I like that endless perspective of brightly colored houses.
You got a very good photograph with the good exposure for the sky and the houses.
That street seems so quit, it's afternoon I guess.
mjw364 (7512) 2013-10-01 13:35
Nice depth and perspective shot that makes good use of colour, light and shade. Well composed with a good POV.
nikkitta (14992) 2013-10-01 13:48
Hola y te felicito , Gervasio por esta capture de una original y muy linda arquitectura con rejas blancas , no muy comun
Me gusta tu idea de una larga perspectiva contraponiendo lado de sol o otro de sombra

very good contribution to TE shwing this typical houses from Cuba. Excellent colors and sharpness.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
SWEETFREEDOM (22898) 2013-10-02 11:47
interesting architecture, fine colors and nice contrast.
Royaldevon (30783) 2013-10-02 11:49
Now, I have really enjoyed perusing this shot, for it is somewhere that I have never seen posted before. It reminds me of local terraced houses, built to house the workforce, with a cobbled street between rows. However, your houses are brightly coloured with ornate door grills, making them more interesting.
You have controlled the light well, considering the strong contrasts.
I am so glad they are still inhabited; that makes it living history.
My warm regards,
mirosu (14984) 2013-10-02 19:20
Superb photo with very good light, nicely balanced colors, excellent clarity and perfect deep depth of field. I like the view through the narrow road and the excellent light and shadow play. Well done.

hi Alexandre, interesting street view of this historical town. Excellent composition. Nice depth and sharpness. Great light. A very good one. Tfs.

Très jolie présentation, excellente perspective, les façades colorées donne beaucoup de gaité, bon jeu ombre et de lumière parfaitement bien gérée, très jolie
jcpix (13704) 2013-10-03 18:44
This is a wonderful illustration in perspective, what an eye catching image! It would appear as if this street just goes on forever....which I guess would make for one long walk to find an address!? :) Smart idea to have included the woman in the foreground, that human presence adds just the right touch to the empty atmosphere. Beautiful soft pastel colors to enjoy all along this row, and the sunny, blue sky is an attractive compliment. A really great shot. Bravo! Have a pleasant day ahead.
All the best,
ChrisJ (100130) 2013-10-05 4:03
Good use of diminishing linear perspective and lead lines with the dual sides of the street and the warm cold color contrast between the blue sky and yellow and red facades of the buildings either side is superb. Nice sharpness and the person at left provides scale and animates the shot. Tfs!
jemaflor (86086) 2013-10-06 0:27
Un beautiful street as all streets in this lovely cuban town, I like the depth and these colors for the houses, well taken, tfs.
ourania (32825) 2013-10-09 13:51
your composition and your superb management of perspectives has rendered the observation of this colonial neighbourhood very interesting and enjoyable. The light and the colours are lovely, I like very much the alternation of warm and cool tones. All the details are interesting, both the elegant and the prosaic ones, as they sum up the reality of daily life in this place. Amazing how the discreet human presence in the shade manages to attract attention. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
tatadalou (6455) 2013-10-09 14:38
Bom dia Alexandre,
The harmony of these colonial facades and their wrought iron gates works on this beautiful perspective. The discreet presence of a few people bring a plus.
Hansaphotos (6915) 2013-10-10 12:40
A very attractive street shot. Love the long lines and the perspective. Splendid arcthitectural details. Great work! TFS.
Best regards, Erling
Angshu (56062) 2013-10-23 21:04
The perspective is excellent drawing our eyes to thedepth of the picture..the architecture is simple and nice with the fine grilled gates adding to the picture. Lovely shot!
jmdias (56625) 2013-10-25 16:40
as grades coloniais são bem parecidas com as que a gente pode ver no peru por exemplo. bem bacana esta vista da rua e das diagonais.
fabianoleite (9551) 2013-11-22 12:44
A rua de paralelepípedos com as casas coloridas ficou muito bem explorada, o ângulo foi bem escolhido. Aquela mulher ali faz charutos ou tem outra profissão?
Periko (2815) 2014-12-30 11:36
A Cuban street without an old American car? Really interesting and novel. I like the iron works on the windows.
