    RovingMike Crucifixion's a doddle...

    His military green shirt with brown stains (plantain) and his weathered skin and hat makes me think of a peasant in town to sell his produce.
    Very nice shot!

    My thanks to R.Mike, Luis and Alan. Luis, I was told the man lost an eye in the fighting following the Bay of Pigs invasion. He was a very friendly chap but then so are the majority of Cuban citizens.

    Really like this. Some black and white portraits are a bit over cooked for my taste but this very nice indeed.

    Really great. What focal length was this at? I can't see the exif info...

    (My guess is at 50mm?)

    Great shot, portraits don't normally do much for me but this is a cracker. What an interesting looking chap, i bet he has lived a colorful life.

    My thanks to jon jones, George and Chris: Think the focal length would be around 50mm can't currently summon up the 'properties' on the file for some obscure reason.

    Probably knows whether Capa faked the Falling Soldier or not. ;)

    Great character portrait. The bw works well too but I bet colour would also be good.
    Nice work.
