Timing

Havana, Cuba

I love this photo, but I had to take it in a hurry if I wanted it to be natural. It illustrates the choice you have to make sometimes between timing and the desire to make a technically better photograph. If I had stopped to change the settings or composition they would’ve noticed me, but I wanted to take the picture as they were at that moment. Timing won out.
