This is from a really fun shoot I did with a dancer from my dance class and some baby powder. I wanted to do some ballet portraits but I wanted to do something different from the classic portraits you see of most dancers. I had originally bought the baby powder to spread in the air to create a hazy feel to the photos, but we quickly realized that the powder wouldn't stay in the air long enough so I had her experiment with throwing it. This was my favorite photo from the shoot and I help it does well.

This was underrated. It's one thing for DPC voters to overlook artistic images, but to skip a magazine quality image like this one... well... it looks really bad.

I really like this and easily would have give it a "10" if I had voted on it.

The lighting is excellent, just a beautiful image.

Excellent poise and drama. Magnificent lighting and conversion. Twenty times better than the outtake. I would have preferred the shot without the dancer looking directly at the camera - I think a greater appearance of concentration would give the impression of total immersion in her art and would significantly add to the drama of the image. Great work, I hope to see more like it!

Wonderful. Although I like this one better, I bet the outtake would have scored higher.

Absolutely beautiful. My granddaughter is a dancer and I have to try this set up with her. Anxious to see how it was done.

Spectacular lighting, and those puffs of dust she's casting out add the perfect creative touch. ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/5000-9999/9462/120/670651.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/5000-9999/9462/120/670651.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Alittle more lighting from the front would have increased the dramatic impact.

Oh, Wow. Another addition to my faves list.

I must confess my complete lack of knowledge on the topic of this shot, so I don't know if the chalk/cloud has any relevance to dance (im thinking in terms of grip/stability), but I think it adds so much to an already incredible shot. Your choice of side lighting works so well here, you certainly captured the perfect moment! Well done.
