While wandering the streets of Havana, I passed by this woman who immediately caught my attention. Not wanting to draw too much attention, I did not put the camera to my face. Instead, I preselected my focus point and focal length, then held it at chest level and guessed at the focus point. I got pretty close but wish I had not cut her hand off. Other than that, I’m pretty happy with the image. The doors act as a natural frame, the clock in the background add a nice element and of course she is a wonderful subject.
I’ve included a b&w version below. Captured with my Fuji X-E1.
Hi John, I love the image and really prefer the black and white version.
Thanks Tom. Appreciate the feedback.
For the way you shot it, you did brilliantly to capture this.
Been switching back and forth between both pictures but in the end like the color version the best. Has a little more depth to it, for me. Thanks for sharing.
Both images are most excellent:)
