Wow what an awesome shot. I love the water droplets flying thru the air. The reflection, the colours and the pov. a great shot, full of the sense of action.
I hadn't thought about Canadians visiting Cuba. It has been so long since Americans can do that I'd almost forgotten about that possibility. I love the stop action you managed in this shot It is interesting that you caught him on the way up with his catch. Thanks for sharing such a nice photo.

Hola Mario, excelente imagen, has captado un buen momento con una excelente exposición y unos tonos blancos muy buenos.
El reflejo en el agua y las gotas le dan fuerza y mayor merito a la toma. Un saludo
