Truly spectacular. I would not change a thing. The sense of anticipation and peering in is incredible. Degas would love it.

Thanks for the comments on the lines and crows.

PS. Just added you to my favorites.

So lovely. I'm surprised I didn't comment during the challenge, but 276 is a daunting number.

Really beautiful and the hands of the ballerina in the center, really makes the shot for me. It epitomizes the elegance and poise of the dancer, not only with her legs and feet, but arms, hands and entire body. Congrats on top 10.

amazing photo whiting, 7 out of 277. The ballerina really stands out as the subject in the middle from that white light circling her. It really is low key. Once again, nice shot.

Mr. whiting you are the sh*t your pictures are owning a 6.6 and a 5.9 you are a pro. Dear God, you own. I am jealous my water picture is at a 5.1 which is good for me.

very cool.

Nice idea, nice color, composition, clean silhouettes. Might be better to crop out right edge, but I think that it is wonderful regardless.

Captivating image. Wondering if the blue background extended all the way to the right of the frame whether the effect might have been greater. Well done.

Really like the silhouette - works wonderfully. Wondering if maybe the left and right sides were cropped if it would be a more powerful image. 7 good luck in the challenge!
