Captured in Santiago de Cuba, during my visit there in December 2012.

Classical pianist and composer Franz Liszt was quoted as saying “A good Cuban cigar closes the door to the vulgarities of the world”. A female literary giant of the Victorian era, George Sand, observed “The cigar is a perfect complement to an elegant lifestyle”.

Camera Nikon D600, f/10, 1/60 sec, ISO-280, focal lenght 300 mm, lens AF-S Nikkor 28-300 mm. Raw file edited in ViewNX 2, plus basic editing in PhotoShop: sharpening, blur, contrast with masking.
