Abel Ernesto’s stunningly beautiful "Ángulos" 
“A loving breath of fresh air…he seems to evoke the greats of the golden age of Mexican cinema with his dramatic cloud-filled skies in which light creates expressive signs, in keeping with scenes never before scene of a city that does not exhaust its polyhedral images marked by the passage of time, yet always with a reflection of hope in the face of so much history and life, which deserve to become future. With Ángulos, Abel Ernesto gives a renewed view of the city to eyes tired of the overwhelming daily routine, and discovers for us another city, other details. Beyond Abel Ernesto’s technical abilities…poetry is paramount…the ability to discover that which is unique in the well-known landscapes, visited and revisited, yet never exhausted.”
Octavio Borges

These pictures are stunningly; painfully beautiful, appearing like water colored landscapes from a master painter. In fact Abel recreates the colors of Havana through the painstaking combination of*many images all with slightly different exposures to create a completely different view of city. The effect is so rich, so sumptuous it leaves you hopelessly love struck, floating on one those fluffy white clouds sitting above the Capitolio building.
* This technique is known as the process for creating a high-dynamic-range (HDR) photograph.

In his own words (Abel Ernesto Rubio Estrada)
Havana, the city of time-peeled signs and gods. With its columns underpinning what the ancients left of old. Its mystified soot that is making history. Its development truncated. The beauty of its worried countenance, creased with traces of the vainness of earlier days. Still finding the courage to stand up and let life flow through its stones among the incredible profusion of textures. A city that went beyond its borders out of the urgency to grow and then lifted its eyes and flirted with the clouds, the ones that unhurriedly pass overhead, and Havana sees them move away from its height beside the sea. A strange melancholy shows in its eyes, and from the eternal dance of time, Havana awakes and life marches on.
