I admit, I took a whole slew of photos without thinking of this contest. Then I remembered it on the last day, so searched my photos for an entry. This one of a silk arial dancer really stood out as something I could enhance with some glowing softness. I really like the way this turned out, especially considering the light I had to work with.

Great photo opp... downside is she's too dark, except for her thigh. Nice background.

Timing is difficult in this picture. Two seconds swinging in either direction and you miss the light on her face.

This isn't a nursery rhyme or fairy tale.

I like the composition, but the lighting is keeping me from seeing the details I'd like to see.

Nice but a pity that the girls face is in the shade. 6

A sweet subject, although the light is (arguably) lighting the wrong place :-)

Love the composition but the shadow on the face and arms detracts.
