The face and positioning of the arms make this a great image. The trim of the dress, upper and lower, provides balance and symmetry. The left hand look a bit odd. Perhaps darkening it would help.   Posted: 11/23/2020 15:03:42

A fantastic image of the dancer. You have done a great job capturing this Ron. Beautifully sharp and the detail is fantastic.The black background accentuates the dancer. Whilst I agree with Alec that the left hand looks strange but, I think that's what flamenco dancers do... click the little cymbals or their fingers.   Posted: 11/28/2020 02:08:39

This shot makes me want to see this lady dance, the facial expression and the flow within her movements are intriguing. I do concur with the above comments the way the light is hitting the hand does make it look a little off.   Posted: 11/28/2020 10:39:48

Great portrait of a focused dance. I wish you had played a bit here an capture some movement with motion blur, I think that would really take this already well done photo to another level. Other than looking at the cropping on the bottom edge of the photo cutting off the edge of the dress I wouldn't change anything.   Posted: 11/28/2020 11:14:36

Great capture of a moment in her exciting dance. The bright purple against the black background adds to the beauty and drama of this shot.   Posted: 11/30/2020 22:18:25
