Beautiful and elegant silhouette combined with the colorful shadows and amazing patterns makes for a fantastic shot ,makes for a "Photo of the day " shot !! Congrats !
This is fantastic. I love the silhouette amidst the riot of color. Strong leading lines and framing. Very creative set up.
Lovely colors and the dancing shadow! Fabulous harmony of colors and shadow. The red of foot where the body and shadow meet is gorgeous
The second i saw the picture i knew where it was taken. In fact i did similar picture at the "Palais des Congrès" but i was alone and no ballerina was dancing around at the time. So my pics was interesting but not oustanding. Next time i will put the camera on the tripod and dance my self may be. My shadow might do the trick even if i'm not a dancer.
......And the green, and the pink,and the yellow, with the shadow on the oblong tiles form a picture that is different, to be looked at, and enjoyed a whole heap. The colors are exciting, as are her legs in the red tights. I don't know about dimensions etc; but I do know what a good picture is. j.e.s.
There are many appealing aspects about this photo. One is the juxtaposition between the orientation of the geometric shapes of the coloured glass and window frame shadows, and the different orientation of the long rectangles of the floor tiles. The ballerina's shadow is positioned so well in the composition, and the highlight of sunlight on her red leotards nicely balances the red light on the floor from the tinted window. The collaboration between photographer and subject to set up the image bespeaks a joyful experience, and the association with the fine art of dance is also appealing. The title has a poetic rhyme too.
Congratulations to you, Tanya, on having one of your photos selected for the Photo of the Day, and another chosen for the Daily Dozen, both on the same day!
