A masterful image that conveys such a huge amount in such a minimal way. It really taps into that shared western cultural history of romantic black and white films and also speaks to us of our fond memories of dancing with loved ones. A superbly simply yet affective image. 8

I would prefer if the lady was closer: her leading foot just a bit further between the gentleman's shoes and perhaps a higher tiptoe. It works overall though.

This is a great portrait without faces. The slight lift of the woman's heel tells the story of the image. Great choice in tones for the image.

Very good composition and a great choice for B&W.
Excellent contrast & tone. ((8))

I'd crop just a little off the top or make it a bit wider. This is verging on square which is an uncomfortable crop...

Great shot, would be perfect for "faceless" too. Nice Work!

a nice idea, seems a little unbalanced, the left side looks heavy, I think its cropped too close to the back of the man's legs

I've seen this before and I like it just has much now as I did then. Great perspective and is very effective with her heel raised. Well Done. Good Luck.

Funny and original. You can do all kinds of thing from that perspective and suggest what is happening out of frame. I'll wait for the sequels :) /8

Classic style. Bump up.

Nice perspective. I like how it makes you wonder what is happening. Wish there was a smidgen more room on the left by his heel.

You absolutely must make prints of this. Excellent contrast, composition!

IMO this shot is kind of boring, and her shoes are too big.
01/16/2005 03:35:30 AM
I think I have scene this idea before. But done before or not, this remains a really terrific perspective. Captures the romance of the occasion perfectly. Great lighting. 8.
