Taken during rehearsals. Horrid lighting conditions resulting in tons of noise. I have no idea how this is going to do. This is the best I could get it in Basic. I'll upload a more pp'd version after voting closes.

Despeckled, desaturated, contrast, cropped, added border.

Thank you pointandshoot! And thank YOU posthumous!! Yaaaaaay!

Congratulations on your first ribbon, Johanna. (Some believe it is the only ribbon worth competing for) A beautiful capture, fitting the challenge perfectly...

I'm sorry but I've been looking at this for 3 minutes and I don't see 'end'. It's very good though.

this is subtle and unpretentious, but perfectly fulfills the challenge. There's a sense that most people have cleared out. The scene, whatever it was, is over. The fact that she's sitting on the floor puts her in tension against that movement, as if she's not ready for it to be over. Visually, there is emptiness behind her, representing a sort of stasis she has achieved in the face of this ending, which she is on the fringe of. For a moment, SHE is the audience, and the chairs act out their little dance, pirhouetting through sunlight and waxed reflections.

Lovely black and white image with infinite depth,clarity and superb contrast and tonal values.I love the use of natural lighting here. The message of the "end" is powerfully brought across in the title and fits in perfectly with the challenge theme. The girls pose, the positioning of the chairs and their reflections in the polished floor adds an extra dimension to this wonderful composition.

great light. I like how the chairs are scattered all willy-nilly. And (challenge title aside) it feels a bit like both an end and a beginning.
