A group of dancers will receive instructions from the dance teacher. The dancers are part of the audience and have spontaneously decided to dance.
Seen and photographed in 2012 in Kassel during the international art exhibition Documenta. Due to the strong backlight, the dancers were almost too silhouettes. The Levels of gray tones was made in the image post-processing.

hi wolf. with the play on grey tones, you have almost acquired an HDR result, no silhouettes at all. good array of dancing students and so many gestures and expressions make this one fun to investigate. the girl standing on the left looks funny with only one leg of trousers.

A lovely relaxed moment displayed. The various postures and expressions and the figures that fill the frame make an excellent composition. Thanks for sharing. Have a nice day!

Seeing the thumbnail these dancers made me think of a number of marionette dolls, pulled by strings from above. Considering the difficult light you have made an impressive job to retrieve such fine details of their faces and bodies. I notice that there is a lot of interaction through gestures and looks within the group. Nobody is left alone and all parts of the composition are tightly knit together..

I enjoy the way all the arms are positioned in this picture. Someone mentioned "marionette dolls" and I think that is a good description. There are movements and choreography in this picture!
