Even though these two ladies are actresses the emotions they show on their faces look amazingly authentic! I love this image!

Excellent, it was my highest scoring shot and would have probably bumped to a 10 if I had time to come back and check it again. Congrats!

Congratulations on your success.

Thanks all for the comments everybody gave me since 44 challenges, this helped me a lot to improve my photography, and finally get a blue.
This is not my best score, and this photo has some flaws , (mostly due to the difficult environment of the shooting session) , but i was lucky to capture the strong expressions of the artists.

Very nicely done. The story (message) jumps off the page and does not require a label to explain it. I like the way you captured their expressions, they are in clear focus, and the background is out of focus and does not get in the way. Well deserving of your top score.

excellent shot.. are they having a dance-off or what? I hear that's how people settled disputes back in the day.. or maybe I watched the west side story too much when I was younger.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/01/2004 08:01:29 PM
Very nice! Now, what are they fighting over? :)

Excellent colors, wonderful expressions, nice lighting and the cropping is close to perfect. A 9

Great color and exposure, fun shot! Nice zoom I assume. Very nicely done! Good title (less than thirteen fourteen words). My favorite shot thus far!! Good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/26/2004 10:44:29 PM
Assuming this isn't a posed shot, It's one of my favorites of the challenge. If it is posed, well, there's a lot more you could have done in terms of composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/26/2004 08:15:24 PM
excelent shot, they look gipsy? very nice color and the expressions are priceless :)

Lol - this has a lot of humour in it but it conveys the challenge within the content - something that only a few entries do for me this week.
