this collection of pictures from my hometown in Cuba, Camaguey, was a happy recovery, I can say that more than ever I do recommend Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, I did recover this photos from the thumbnails that the software create, and with a 24″ monitor, you can work your magic, I do know I can’t print large copies, but at least 8×10, and I good with that.
I lost close to 300 RAW files when transferring last day from the laptop to my hard drive, I don’t know what really happened, but realized that all my Camaguey Collection wasn’t in my backup folder over my Lacie Rugged 500GB portable Hard Drive.
Well, finally some results, now I can proudly show to you guys the place I grew up, If you are from Camaguey and reading this, just drop a comment and I will give you the complete collection FOR FREE!!! how ’bout that!
No more to say, the pictures here:
Ok guys time to go, hope you enjoy,
wow, breathtaking pictures.. that is my city and i love it.
Ceasar thanks for sharing. Great photos. See you when we get back from Canada.
@Judith: if you want this shots let me know, I can send the complete set to you.
have a great night and thanks again for stopping by!
Great Pics, I will love to see the rest of the collection, and also what type of lens and camera did u used to take these photos?
i just going to put together the whole package to send it to you, camera used Nikon D300, several lenses, Sigma 10-20mm, Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8 and a telephoto Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8, if you wanna see the rest of the toolbox go to My Gear Box ( http://cesardphoto.com/blog/what-is-in-my-bag/ ) section in the blog.
I’m sure you don’t know that I have become fan (I’m no longer addict to anything, not even to the food) to Your Darkroom site and that I visit it at least once a week: Excellent site, excellent pictures and excellent photographer.
I would not offend you making suggestions on photography
(zapatero: a tu zapato!) but for sure you would appreciate the points of view of an old-guard frustrated photographer, one of those that still remember, for instance, what it is a color compensation filter and what they were used for! Rotflmfao!
I’m sending some comments “internally“, to your old yahoo address (do you use it already?)
Warm greetings with all the nostalgia these Camaguey shots have brought to me.
That’s the best images collection from my hometown I’ve found on the web. Way to go paisano!

Hola, César: Las fotos, todas buenísimas. Excelentes.

Espero ver pronto más fotos de Camagüey hechas por tí.
Que bueno que te gustan las fotografías, estare publicando como te dije pronto, mantente conectada al blog para los updates
Muy admirado Cesar, tengo mas de 40 años de no ver mi ciudad. Tus fotos no solamente las admiro desde el punto de vista profesional que tu le impones, sino desde el otro…. el de la ausencia. La nostalgia quizas.
Mucho te agradeceria si me proporcionas el set completo que tan gentilmente ofreces. Quiero a traves de tu trabajo hacer un viaje imaginario al lugar que tu, yo y muchos otros tenemos en nuestro corazon.
Gracias de nuevo por el regalo.
Check your email, just forwarded the URL with the ZIP file of photos.
