she looks a bit blurry

The focus is a little fuzzy.

The image needs to be rotated to the left, as she is tilted slightly.

Good title - fits the challenge as I understand it. For me, I wish it were just a bit crisper around her and maybe more of a blurred background.

Great match on the challenge. Very pretty ballerina.

The shot looks a little out of focus. I think it would have been good to have moved the model a little to her left to avoid the edge of the curtain. Perhaps her tutu(?) could have been pushed down so it didn't fill the space defined by her left arm. The curtail itself is very nice. From what I can see of the pattern, it leaves me with a Russian Ballet environment.

Very nice shot.

I like the lighting and the fact that she is looking at the camera ... not often seen in dancing shots. But it is a b1t soft.
