First...my standard intro to anyone "new" to me on this forum...
My comments or suggestions below are not a criticism of you, your model, your talent or skill. I offer them in a friendly tone of voice and with the sole intent to help you with a second POV and set of eyes. If you read sincere questions and simple suggestions as "criticism" of you, then you will miss how I am trying to help you.

Of course this may be your own "style" or your own "vision" and I suppose we can assume that the images look just like they do because that is exactly how you like them. That is OK too. It just shows that there are differences of "opinion" on what looks good. IF these are exactly what you want and like, then by all means continue making your images look like that and have fun doing it. I can only speak for myself and what I do or do not find appealing in the posted photos. As I always say: "Follow your own muse."

I see your photo post has had many views and no comments from viewers.

I know that can be disappointing and often discourages people from posting/participating in a forum like this.

So, I will post a comment or two and maybe that will get others to contribute their views too.

As with anything where a subjective view (opinion) is shared, there can be many views of the same issue or subject.

I like dance and enjoy seeing various forms of dance in photos.

In general I like this photo too.

I like the use of the powder to show motion.

I don't like the blast of flash by her foot. I think it detracts from the image. To see what I mean, cover that flash up with your thumb or do a variation in post with it eliminated and then look at the image again.

I hope these quick comments help you.

Good 'Steady' points already.

I'll add that I'd like to see more of her face, or see it more prominently.
