Tango in Florida Avenue in Buenos Aires
Tango is a social dance form that originated in Buenos Aires and Montevideo. The musical styles that evolved together with the dance are also known as tango. Early tango was known as tango criollo or simply tango. Today, there are many tango dance styles including Argentine tango, ballroom tango (American and International styles), Finnish tango, Chinese tango, and vintage tangos. Argentine tango is often regarded as the "authentic" tango since it is closest to that originally danced in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Music and dance elements of tango are popular in activities related to dancing, such as figure skating, synchronized swimming, etc., because of its dramatic feeling and rich opportunities for improvisation on the eternal topic of love.

Yes,the Zoom effect works great in this shot,
A fine capture with good timing,-the pose of the dancers is very fine!

Nice shot Jaed;
I like the composition and the radial blur effect. But I think the photo had a bit more potential, so I've done a workshop on it... I hope it'll be of some use to you...

I love the look of concentration on their faces! Good blurring effect...it not only givs a sense of motion but serves to isolate the dancers from those watching.

Excellent shot but the guy dancer seem out of action and is inbalance with the lady dancer.

Beautiful improvements on the original shot. The blurred background puts the dancers in the forefront and isolates them --as if there are in a world of their own. Best of all, it captures the intimacy of the tango. Lovely.

Acho este tipo de foto, além de estar excelente, muito sensual, o tango é...
Existem algumas fotos desses casais dançando em BA, a sua é uma das boas...

Muito legal o efeito da foto, realçando o casal e dinamizando a imagem. Cores e luz igualmente bonitas. Tenho duas de tango também, mas totalmente diferentes, até porque tirei num show à noite. Parabéns!

Super dance demonstration, taken at the decisive moment, and good post processing (blurred background is well thought and done)
