From the Tango Guide of the Festival
One of the 400 couples ending their perfomance at the Qualifying Rounds
After a few kind words to the person in charge to allow access to the first row ( I show him the very bad photos I was taking), he allowed me to sit at the front

When I was a teenager, I had an Italian aunt (Adriana D'Amico) who was married to my uncle. She taught me the Tango, only as an Argentinian champion could have don, even though she was Italian. From the music to the movements I still love to listen and savor the dance. I am glad to see this photo, shot from almost floor level, of the two competitors. You've managed the light exceptionally well. Were you sitting next to the stage, as I was when I shot Olé!.
Warm regards, Maria, gave a good weekend.

a wonderful picture of the impressive finale in this couple's choreography. Very emotional too, it's like a passionate parting. You have framed the couple superbly and have captured the tension in their postures with great clarity. The light has been managed excellently and there's lots of atmosphere. I love the expression on the woman's face, the ripples on the man's costume and his hand's on his partner's waist. Congratulations and thank you! I hope you get more pictures from the festival and that the Greek couple (there's bound to be one) will do fine.
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

actitudes son espectaculares, la luz y los colores son hermosos contra la oscuridad. Este campeonato espectacular da una idea muy falsa de lo que es realmente el tango. El tango es un baile íntimo, incluso más interesante y difícil de bailar cuando elegimos una posición cerrada, en milonguero. Lo más importante es escuchar a la música y su interpretación, lo que podemos hacer físicamente, que viene después.
La imagen es excelente. Bravo.
josepmarin (57583) 2012-08-25 6:26
fue todo un éxito que te permitieran sentarte en la primera fila, porque esa posición te abrió la puerta a unas tomas fantásticas de las parejas en el campeonato de baile, como ésta que nos regalas aquí, en un movimiento muy gimnástico del tango.
El dinamismo y el sentimiento de la escena que captaste perfectamente dan una gran potencia a la foto, en la que has hecho una excelente gestión de la difícil luz interior.
Es una gran composición.
PD: seguimos a más de 30ºC, aunque parece que hoy va a suavizarse un poco este fuerte calor.

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the spectacle that two dancers are playing the Tango. It's so pasionate by their pose. And, it's good at light control.
guld (1042) 2012-08-25 8:20
Ah yes, tango! The expression of human passion in its best form. Hello Maria! I think you captured the essence of passion and the physical control perfetly in this photo. I also love the light control. Congrats.(This is going to my "favorites" file)

Intéressant jeu de lumières qui éclaire l'action des danseurs et intéressante diagonales au niveau du danseur et entre les deux tètes.
Un bon moment décisif bien capté

Hi dear Maria, how are you?
Great shot from Tango Festival! I like stage shot very much, as the light effect is so wonderful. Yes this image is also fantastic by getting marvelous light effect. And you captured the perfect moment. Her expression is so wonderful too. Thank you for your sharing and have a good Sunday!

Una foto magistral de estos dos bailarines, la imagen capta todo el dinamismo y la esencia de entrega de la pareja, con esos movimientos de autenticos gimnastas.
El negro del fondo, destaca las figuras casi con un efecto 3D, la iluminacion tambien es muy bonita y me gusta como destacan los pliegues del traje del chico, debido a esa postura tan extrema.
Perfecto trabajo amiga mia, muy buena nitidez e iluminacion, marco apropiado tambien para presentar la bonita escena.
adores (34736) 2012-08-26 18:02
A real shot from Argentina!
I like it! You captured a great pose and the exposure is very good. Well done! Seems you got a really good place:)!
jemaflor (81352) 2012-08-28 23:05
Très belle scène, les danseurs ont une attitude intéressante, on devine la musique et le mouvement, très belles teintes douces et bons reflets sur le sol, très réussie cette prise difficile.
abmdsudi (40174) 2012-08-29 1:23
Impressive timely shot with good hint of movements, full of dynamism, richness and vibrancy depicting their intense energy and the look of concentration as they fully immerse in the process. You excellently seize the right opportunity as they paused momentarily. The composition is spot on with the main interest strategically located filling much of the frame and the black background really emphasises the subjects, I also feel that this has given more detail under natural indoor artificial light but the warm glow is amazing while the detailed smart costumes make this even more elegant. This is wonderfully vivacious picture and a great decisive moment fulfilling your ideas with spectacular result. My compliments :))

Wow! What a superb scene here executed with such a good exposure and great sharpness. Love the poses of this couple presented amazing emotions. Very well done.

How beautiful can one express themselves without words, only with movements and expressions. When you see such a picture emotions are many and strong. Excellent tecnique and light.
thebest (4272) 2012-09-09 19:43
How wonderful it is to see a Tango being performed - I found it to be one of the most moving moments of my life - I became so emotional - that was a few years ago on a previous trip to your wonderful country - I love this image - the couple are poised beautifully - well captured.
annjackman (18153) 2012-09-10 1:39
A super picture of this couple dancing the tango. You have captured the passion of the dance in this moment. Beautiful light and a dark BG - excellent.
Kind Regards, Ann

An interesting theme and fine dynamics.
How graceful tango, so this is your photo.
Perfect photo paper.
ikeharel (53025) 2013-10-25 6:42
Always I wonder why tango dancers make a serious face-expression when performing. Sure it doe's add to a dramatic scene.
Beautiful yet another one of this series, excelent light on stage collected, and clear view of the stunning pose of the two.
Buen fin de semana,
sabermonajati (8959) 2013-10-29 20:51
excellent portrait with amazing style you captured.

I've learnt many things in Argentina about religions, and I'm not talking about catholicism (yet now that François has been elected ....)
i'm talking about Evita Peron, Diego Maradona (soon Lionel Messi !) and Carlos Gardel
I was at a milonga and was impressed by ordinary people coming with bags with tango shoes in them, put them on and start dancing with passion with the first to invite them. Impressive
have a nice WE, best regards
PS of course I forgot to mention Pachamama, Gaucho Gil and Difunta Correa !!

Hola Miss Nikkitta,
Hmmm, let's see...I know dance like I know art....nothing at all, I have two left feet! :) Even for someone like me who would be a bumbling stumbling fool on the dance floor, the Tango is undoubtedly recognizable...and boy oh boy, did you ever capture the perfect ending pose to represent it!
Dare I say, in conjunction with this gentlemans jacket, it's all so "silky smooth." :) An elegant stance, and a visual that evokes a sense of action and emotion. The artificial lighting has produced a red cast over the scene, which looks and feels just right to match the fervor and gusto! A very nice series of shots from this festival, now...dance!
Enjoy the rest of your evening, mi amiga Argentina.
