About the Image(s)

While walking the streets of Havana, we came across these two puppies performing tricks and generally showing off and, of course their owner was happy to allow us to take pictures providing we paid a few pesos for the privilege. {And yes, despite the info we were given that they only were allowed to accept only pesos, he happily took US dollars.}

All dressed up for a little travel; turistas. Cute puppies with interesting gesture relating to each other, like they are having a conversation. Good timing on the capture.

I like the soft pastel colors in the image. I think you have cropped well, making your subjects front and center, removing all unnecessary information from the image.

You have carefully cropped to include the words Viaje Cachito in your image, I wonder why you din't include the translation to English in your title. For me that would make the image a little more coherent. Otherwise I would suggest cropping a little off the left to improve the balance; the visual weight looks to me to be a bit heaver on the left.

The lighting on the puppies looks a little flat to me, perhaps a tad of contrast in the darker tones would help. I think that the image could do without the red stroke, I don't think it is needed and for me is a little distracting.

A fun image to view; well done.   Posted: 11/11/2020 16:47:08

Cute puppies, good timing on the capture. The image makes me smile. I did have to look up the translation tho.   Posted: 11/15/2020 10:52:40

Cute puppets. I would probably crop in from the left for a better composition.   Posted: 11/17/2020 16:01:43

This might be my favorite of your Cuban images! The stage set by the dog's owner, I suppose, limits your composition options? I think your colors and clarity are pretty good. I am not bothered by having to Google "Viaje Cachito in english" to discover the meaning of the words.   Posted: 11/17/2020 19:36:46

In response to Victor... I didn't translate because Cachito in English has two meanings and I wasn't really sure which translation to use to be accurate.

Thank you all for your input.   Posted: 11/26/2020 12:38:04
