[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These dancers were standing near the stage watching another group finish dancing. One girl was tapping her foot to the music and she was so ready to get on stage and dance. It looks like she may have torn her dress while dancing in a previous set.

Darkened a tad, added contrast, resized and sharpened for upload.

Thank you for your comments, critiques, and workshops. I appreciate all of them. OPA! Lisa

OPA!! Nice legs here Lisa! Well seen. I like the focus right on the legs! Tis the season for good food, great music, festivals and Schnops!! Have fun! I like the idea here!

si una bella immagine di un momento di preparazione, credo , prima della danza
bello il riflesso della luce sulle strisce colorate, peccato ci sia un po' di sovraesposizione sulle calze bianche

Funny idea Lisa.. imaginative and very well captured
luv the composition..
Big compliment,

Hi Lisa:
Well seen & captured...I like the your sharpness & details with taking advantage of ambient light through correct exposues is superb:)

Hi Lisa
nice and original idea.
good focus and sharp colors.
well observed and captured.

Hi, Lisa -
Great eye to see and capture this wonderful image. Just a great idea to isolate on this waist-down view with the wonderful silky textures and deep colors of the skirts, which are nicely contrasted with the white tights and black shoes. Sharp details and great exposure. Excellent!

Bom dia Lisa,
Great idea to select only legs.
Great focus and composition. Good tiny framing.

OMG Lisa , this is worth more than a cursory look , hey the more legs the better , well who is saying that , just from a man's point of view , he he!
Lisa i like what you did here very much , this is the type of photography that makes me click , this is a terrific idea , you know i think oftentimes showing part of a whole is more guaranteed to get the wow's pouring in , not that the girls aren't cute and/or not seen here dancing , not that it is missing the whole point , i just say this is different and there is enough to make a viewer like me smile , to me it is a 'Wow ' shot !
Nothing much to argue about here, love the idea , your PP is just fine , good contrast of the dark dresses versus the nylon stockings , a minor niggle is the crop , well your frame might have included the far left girl's left leg to make it even ,he he, you may have had to to act swiftly, you did not have time to count !
A very fine capture Lisa,

Unusual POV Lisa which is why this is so effective.. The crop is ideal.
Good sharpness and the high contrast definitely a plus with this one - nice strong bands of colour too.

Hi Lisa,
Interesting view! I like the way you view the world around you.

Hi Lisa,

The last page (most recent postings) of your portfolio is a most interesting clicking/viewing experience as I see a theme and/or your current artistic vision is well conveyed in your compositions. You have a superb gift for isolating images and making them look engaging. That is how I view this photo. The slightly raised foot creates some tension but more importantly, it makes me imagine of the girls' facial expressions. Enjoy the rest of Sunday.


Hello Lisa,
Pending. Great photo. Super sharp.
