I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: Standout image from this amazing POV. Great overall composition actually and the structure in her skirt adds much to it's texture. I also like the very subtle floor textures too and the interplay between the dancer and her shadow is most compelling.

Critical stuff: Nothing really

Overall: A lovely image that will do well.

The Ballerina


I make my body art.
I make my body lines
and fine French words.
I make my body lives
and terrible deaths.
I make my body not a body
but a story.

My body is not me.
My body speaks
but I am silent to you
and my heart
is in the dressing room.

I really like what you did with the shadow and the spread out dress.

Fantastic perspective.

This is not a soft looking image but it works. The intense detail in her dress brings out the petal-like shapes which I'm sure you took attention to. The shadow adds an almost haunting quality.

i think i'd like it better with out the shadow. just the overhead shot and dead space all around.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Lighting, composition, shadow all perfect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/13/2012 12:09:17 AM
nice composition..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/12/2012 07:24:52 PM
This makes me... "feel".


I'd have cropped the top off to make it more... intimate... but.. golly!

This is amazing.

the shadow makes the image to me - it balances the scene and gives greater depth and emphasis to the lines of "The Flower"

this is delightful

different perspective, I like how the folds in the dress line up with her hands, kind of give this motion, I think I would of cropped off the top and taken out the shadow, focusing more on just the ballerina, the shadow is cool and I get what you were going after, just seems like a stronger comp to me cropping the top so the black on top is about half the black on the bottom and keep her where she is on the right hand side, lovely either way

A real masterpiece: balance, lighting and this incredible use of the shadow.

Nicely executed. Her arms seem to emerge from the folds of the swirling fabric.
