a rather gothic couple performing a derwish dance in the underpass under the Bethesda terrace in central park in New York.
As they where swirling around, they where playing the violin at the same time. Lucky for you you don't have to hear their singing, which was more of a screetiching actually.
Bethesda Terrace is one of the most renew sites in central park.

I love the movement in your shot. I might have taken a step back to include the complete front dancer, but in cases like this with movement, you have to take your chance and there's not much time to think or react, really. TFS

Very strange to see the dancing derwishes in Central Park. And to play violin and singing at the same time! I have a headache just looking at it. Dynamical shot.

Whirling dervishes no less and the extra violins! Its very good the way you have the swirling movement vividly expressed. Excellent exposure, coloring and general contrast. Imho, for this type of shot lower pov at same eye level will render more impact. It's a fantastic photo no doubt, Congrats.

Great shot. You've captured the movement very well and your POV contributes to the photos general effect.

excellent capture. I do have in my TE gallery a photo of swirling derwishes from Turkey. It was so hard for me to photograph it. So I can really appreciate the amazing job which you have done here. Excellent capture of the movement with crispy sharp background.
Very well done,

Very dynamic shot with perfect exposure time. Long enough to convey the moment and short enough to show the shape of the subject.
Milej niedzieli! (have a nice Sunday). :)

Fantastic motion created with this artistic type of exposure. I'm glad you included the text, otherwise I would have guessed this to have been located in a dance hall. Wonderful capture of this outdoor moment, the colors and lighting are crisp and balanced. Nice presentation, well done!

Une photo plutôt originale et intéressante. Ça tourne et ça tourne, la musique qui sort des violons doit être étourdissante. Excellente exposition à1/3 de seconde qui donne un merveilleux effet des mouvements. Beau travail.
Félicitations!... et merci de ta visite,

You had an unusual idea to take a photo with a dancing couple, very creative. The result is great.
