[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I captured several sessions of Native American dancers and was very moved by the experience. In my photo, I wanted to communicate a totality of the dance event including movement, emotion, mood and transformation.

I like how these photos turned out. Here is one of the first. I'd love your comments to see if my experiment worked.

Post processing included selecting the face and other sections of the photo, adding some motion blur, and fiddling with levels and saturation to achieve the desired effect.

Hi David,

definitely a photo not easy to understand, especially at first sight, but with a strong emotional appeal and the idea behind it is profound as much as the used PP is well conceived.An image expressing a way to see the world beyond the real to enter in the personal perspective.TL's aim in practice....
