For International Womans' Day 2012. "You strike a woman, you strike a rock."
The highlighted woman is Danielle, one of the Burundian students at the school where I work, performing on International Day our own little contribution to diversity and human rights.

This is a heart-warming and attractive photo expressing the joy of life. It is well composed and the background is also nice and interesting, just sufficiently blurred not to steal the attention from the Burundian woman.

this is a joyful and upbeat image.Danielle is perfectly placed in the frame, allowing to see her fellow students. Excellent dof and colours. A happy addition to International Women's Day.

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition, good focus and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see the spectacle in which the girl is making the joy by a dance. Her expression is very good. It's impressive in the spectator who is looking later, too. Good photograph!

I love the joy and exuberance reflected in this image, and the way it is isolated from the rest of the image by the sharp focus on the performer. Well done.

oH Iain !!! you are going to have a ball in Swaziland...... lots of colours and uncomplicated people.
This image combines very well the background with the foreground...... there is plenty to observe even though the girl dancing takes centre stage.

Warm colors and lovely. Good and happy resolution combined with a good portrait of a dancer.

Great capture taken on the spur of the moment ! You got the happiness of the main character just right, and I also like the expressions on the faces in the background ! Some are interested, some blasé... Makes you wonder what she was so happy about !
Thanks for sharing this everyday life image.
