Another photo of Festival Indonesia dancers, performing in the Federation Square in Melbourne last weekend. This has had about 25% cropped from all sides, and a little increase in saturation as well as a bit of selective lightening of the face of the girl on the right. The dancers were in extremely bright sunshine in front of a dim background. Their sinuous movements and the colours of their garments were spectacular and captivating.

Excellent composition, light and colours here, Andrew, I like how they form one continuous line, being turned to each other in symmetrical positions. You have captured a moment of great beauty here, really. The dancer on the right is a bit grainy, being in the shadow, but this is not your fault but I guess your camera's...

Hi , Andrew .
It's SO beautiful .
I am very fond of the colours and their beautiful costumes .
The yellow , the orange and the greyish-lilac colour go together so well .
The framing is excellent !!
The black part of the frame " feels like " velvet !
One of my favourite photos !

Eye-catching strong colours!
Your point of view is good, and resulting in a dynamic composition, and you capture the interaction between the dancers well...
Strong sunlight gives some problems, but I can live with that!

Your PP work really is excellent with this photo. You have enhnced a photo to bring to us the very scene that you saw..great. The colors are really well captured and enhanced. I really enjoy the mirror effect that your perspective creates with the two women. The details of their outfits are really well documented also. Another fine shot of this dance.
