Shot in my studio as part of a dancers portfolio.

I really like the soft feeling to this shot, feels like it would be great as a piece of art on a wall as well as in a Ballet Portfolio. I've got a 16"x20" print in my studio and it looks fantastic in print.

Hope it goes ok here, really want it to get above 6 and would love this to beat the 6.6 needed to get onto my profile front page as I prefer it to any of the shots on there! As it's a free study i'm not holding out too much hope of a score quite that high.

The dancers name is Carla Gentry and she's a student at Italia Conti (Italia Conti)

The color contrasts are beautiful and I love the complexity in all the reds.
I might have preferred a little more negative space to the left, but that's just a nit pick. Simply lovely.

There is something quite enchanting about this image. I love how the background compliments the tutu and the softness of the 'models' skin is wonderful. Very nicely composed with excellent lighting. I have voted on all photos and am now revisiting to leave comments and this is my favourite image in the FS :o)

Very lovely. The epitome of my visual concept of ballerinas.
