Great dancer like image, how clever. I think you and I both know this should have placed much higher.

I'm surprised this didn't finish higher; it's such an appealing image.

What a lovely dancer! Yes, not all that seems dead is forever so. Coming from the light to whisper to us.

(Looks like one of Johanna's veils - a nice compliment)

Great title - "dance" was the first thing that came to mind for me on viewing. Voted earlier; back to comment.

plus points for thinking outside the box, love that it actually looks like a dancer

I like the title and can see why you selected it. The colors are pleasing, the raking light is nice, and the flower goes well with the background. If I have a criticism it is that parts of the bloom look like they have been over sharpened (something I am always doing, myself) while a couple of spots look to be out of focus. It seems like this might have been a bit soft in the original and you tried to correct it by sharpening in post processing. Having said that, the image and the idea have much to commend themselves.

OMG! This is the most beautiful ballerina I've ever seen! Or perhaps it's Isadora Duncan :) My fave of the challenge
