At the lovely Galeria La Encantada in La Paz, a young couple tangos while a sculpture (by the great artist Lila Magallon) seems to watch...
Even with the ISO cranked up to 3200, this shot took 1/30 of a second, so I had to wait for a slower moment during the dance. Fortunately, the tango incorporates many slow and stopped moments in its steps!

You captured a wonderful scene here with a good timing.I like a lot the dancer`s facial expressions and poses, and this sculpture is a fine detail in your composition.

they are fully absorbed by the dance, and well lighted. The wooden sculpture at right is distracting.

a wonderful moment - I love the feeling of passion coming from the couple the lighting is great and the colours warm. I like the statue - I think it adds to the photo.
Although the colours are great, I wonder if you tried the photo in black and white?
