In Cuba, brown and green are primary colors (Nature, Fidel\'s clothes, cigars, brown rum...). But in La Habana, primary colors are grey, blue, red, green, yellow, pink, orange... the Promised Land for the photographer!

->Home made photograph, with souvenirs from La Habana. I wanted to emphasize the texture of the tobacco leaves.
Post-processing: Raw conversion with color and contrast enhancement, little crop.

Love the cigars, I find that the money is a bit distracting. I think the 3 lined up would of been sweet, but its still a great shot. Awesome work.

Great composition, cropping & colours.

If I'm being anal I'd say I'm not entirely comfortable with the field of focus though, as the top cigar is OOF but the bottom one is in focus & the middle somewhere in between.

Did Kramer make these? I think the cigars without the money would have been good enough. I would have probably given the cigars an 8, but with the money I give it ia 6.

Had there been more of the cigars and less of the paper in the upper left, I would have scored this a point higher. I like the texture on the cigars.

would have been better without the warranty seal label, and the other lables as all the colours take your eyes away from the brown. pity as the focus is good. good luck

should've left the money out in my opinion.

don't think the warranty seal was needed here ... IMHO it takes away from the photo ...
