Such beauty and grace. Perfectly exposed and composed. I also like the background with the greenish forms standing out of the dark.

What a great picture Maciej!
The black background and a perfect lighting jut out the dancer and every detail of her dress.

Superb shot, Maciej, with the colours of her beautiful costume, these passionate reds and regal golds against the pitch black, her graceful pose, the delicate paint on her palms, her impenetrable smile... really first-class shot! Did you show it to her afterwards? I am sure she would love a print.

Scena jest rewelacyjna, kadr również.
Podoba się jakość przy 800 ISO. Zastanawiałem się wcześniej jak spisuje się Tobie 17-40 z nowym 5D, czy jest użyteczny? Czy te 17mm to już naprawdę taki szeroki kąt jak w analogu.

Hello Maciej. Ecellent image, the colors are great and that pitch black background is perfect and good placement of the dancer in the frame. good work.

Perfect catch Maciej, I like her impressive solidified face expression. The subject is nicely hilighted by your flash.

very clean execution and the 5D is really noiseless at 800. Very good quality of the colors. You did catch an interesting stance here Maciej

Very good image.It appears she posed for you otherwise it is difficult to get dancer in still pose.Good colors and girl's expression.

I'm about to go for such dancing show ... in Paris from a school dance.
Lovely capture, everything is so well captured, the face, the hands, the attitude and many other wonderful details.
Thanks, Alain .

One of the best images of Bharatnatyam I've ever seen. This goes straight in to my list of favourites.
