Hi Karen. Excellent photo. Good colour and sharpness. Well composed with the second dancer behind to balance the shot and add depth. Nice work and thanks for sharing.
Have a good weekend, Paul.

Amazing dresses, even if I guess this has become a kind of touristic event. I like your composition and the as always very good colours and sharpness.

A fine composition with interesting juxtaposition between the two dancers. Good management of depth of field lifts the dancers from the crowd and adds depth. Very good colours.

Nice one, this is exactly what I was talking about with depth of field control, the bg is soft because the f-stop is small and this accentuates the dancer, well done.

Wonderful shot with brilliant colors and contrasts. The blurred background became excellent. Beautiful portrait. Best Regards, Consuelo

Wow, Karen! Nice shot!!!
wonderful color and detail. You kept it nice and sharp and the color is beautifully clear. Excellent DOF to isolate the front dancer and she is in a great spot in your composition. Outstanding job!! Many thanks and hope all is well,

Interesting costumes. The eagle features are much bigger & longer than I had imagined. My Blackfeet Indian friend from Montana gave me a hat and a blessed bald eagle feature which is tied with a leather holder with a loop. I was told that only native Americans were allowed to possess one. Yes, I still have the felt hat & the feather. Have a nice weekend. Best Regards. Latiff.

I've just looked at your 'Pow Wow' series which is very interesting! Here, I like the positioning of the two women, their beautiful costumes and your framing!

Another wondeful capture here! Love the dof setting! Great colors and sharpness too.
I think it may have been still better if we could get her eyes to face the camera because that will capture her true expression.

Lovelly one. You managed to capture an intense moment of the dance, the dancer face is so expressive and her costume so beautiful. The POV is perfect to get the second dancer, which creates a very interesting composition, as if the second is a mirror of the first dancer. Goood job with the vigneting in PP to shallow the background, it worked very well to isolat the mais subjects.
