I like the tight framing that cut out the face of the left assistant and the right's body...Good use of limited DOF to focus the look on the subjects..there is a good mixture of hidden/revealed elements and body parts - well seen!

very nice timing, although intricate, the decomposition of the make up, dress up is very easy to read. Could be an illustartion for a "transvestite make up 101" or "tranvestites for dummies" explanation book.

The compostition is exquisite, the movement of the various players across the stage, colors, where they are looking, it's like a dance in time, Maciej. Superior work for sure,

Nice shot MAC.

Interesting scene with a lot of details and things to see.I like the time before performing because there is so much energy.

Nice complex compo that is somewhat geometricial with the shapes and lines of the hands interrsecting. I also like the tight crop you have here, bringing us close to the 'action'. Good details and colours. I'd probably prefer the face to be on sharp focus, as I find it the important element here. An enjoyable documentary pic.

This is a very good composition full of movement and colour. I like the different activities going on at that time. The photo’s DOF is very good as well. Well done.

quite an interesting photo of this event.. i like the fact that one can see its preparatives, but am somewhat dispappointed to see so little and so few faces...

Superbly taken, the color is out of this world, and the texture of their skin and the general composition are priceless.
