Oooooh, I like this a lot! The sidelighting (spotlight?) and reflection in the floor are very nice. Great moment you captured in her movement too.

I'm not sure what your ethics on this would be, but maybe considering getting rid of the light in the backgrounf and the big dust bunny in the front left?

I would definitely lose the stage light if it was me. It confused me at first. I was thinking "Was this shot in an alley?" and "The light on her isn't coming from that light is it?" Then I figured it out. If there was some hint of people in the wings or something, it might work, but without telling any more of a "backstage story", I think it distracts too much.

At this angle, I think the image is more about her expression than anything else. That would cause me to be tempted to take it to a more traditional 8x10 crop and unfortunately lose the floor reflection. The alternative would be to leave it as is or maybe even go for a more extreme 9x16 crop (to emphasize the vertical) and then print it really big.

For a print, I would do everything I could to retain some tonal variation in the highlights and shadows of her skin.

Nice image.

Thanks Eyeball...I guess. I try not to over think it. To me it is just a picture of a girl dancing. Nothing more, nothing less.

I like this, Michael. Nice shot! Shooting from the side like this provides for some dramatic lighting.

I'm torn about the light in the background. It gives the shot some depth but it unfortunately pulls the attention away from the dancer and as Eyeball mentioned, can be momentarily confusing. The only other thing is that her right hand is lost a bit because it's going right at you. But those are minor, it's a beautiful shot as it is. Great job!

Thanks Ron. This was not setup at all I was hired to shoot a dance competition and this one from the shoot. I try not to be a spray and pray shooter but for this I almost had to be. This was a sequence of about 4 shots this one being the best of the bunch. Thanks for the kind words

Nice shot - and I totally dig the light and chair in the background. Gives it environmental context.

I like this shot, too, including the light. The bright spot on the left foreground needs to go, as has been mentioned. The other thing I might suggest to you is to experiment with it, playing ever-so-slightly with a color filter to give the light some depth and interest. As it is, it's just plain white. Try warming it up a bit; then try cooling it down significantly. I bet you'll come up with something that's quite dramatic. It's got a lot going for it already.

Just my two cents...
