I'm back from a great Easter trip to Cuba. Here is the first picture I put on the net from the trip - but I'm not 100% sure about this one.

Baseball is very popular with the kids in Cuba and they are playing on every street corner with often very primitive tools, like old bread for the ball and plain wood stick for the bat. This picture is from a small park close to our hotel in Havana.

I really like this - placing a entirely out-of-focus subject is a great way of leading your eye into the detailed background. Was this a monochrome image originally?
Welcome back BTW and I'm glad you had a good trip...

Thank you tone.

No this was not monochrome image originally - I pulled down the saturation when converting from raw to jpg.
