Persistence. That was the theme of this shoot! I tried 5 times. The next to last I thought I'd figured it out, but that was the time I learned what not having a 100% viewfinder means... I had to shoot yet AGAIN and zoom in a bit tighter to not get the edge of the backdrop. I hope all the aerobics was worth it!!

Tried a few shots without the shadow, but it didn't have the same appeal to me. Purists might protest.

I like the pose and the setup, very nice.

Lovely job of it... The tension in the toes belies the apparent calm of the model, though... Love the composition and the hat! :) (not voting)

Very nice.. clean. Have to admit that shadow by her foot and I think that is one by her left hand on the dress are kind of distracting.. but overall very nice

Has all the identifying features of a 21_N.gif tanguera entry, which, in any case, is a compliment.

I like this ...well done. The only thing is that it at first glance it looks a little strange...like her head is facing the wrong way....if that makes sense ! I gave it a high score though !

Very nice; you not only met the challenge description but created an engaging photo. This is an excellent example of how composition should be done.

Nice idea but two things, the pose is a bit 'stiff' for the mood being depicted. Another idea is if you could make the feet 'dirty' to invoke irony.

facing away adds such a quirky feel to the image
