Yup -- another in the ballerina series. The dresses were kind of a blue with a bit of pink overtone, so I saturated the blues a bit and tones the bricks. Didn't play with my lighting on this one, because there was nice natural lighting.

Here's another shot from the series:

Thanks for the wonderful comments -- I was afraid that it wasn't "bursting" enough. I tried bringing the bricks darker, but it just didn't look right, so I left it like this. Now that I look at it a week later, the blues are almost painfully blue! I think maybe they're a bit too saturated... :)

Thanks again!!

This is artistic and well composed. Just a smidge more at the top of the arch would have been good. Beautiful colours.Great Colour Temperature.

Simply lovely - the bright blue against the earth tone is a perfect match. A terrific composition - well done. Should be a top ten.
