Pirouette by eagle79 Pirouette by eagle79
Impressions Dance Troupe - Winter 2007 Recital

Originally, I did a good deal of work to remove the unnecessary background elements and the strip of tape on the floor, but I finally decided that for this image, I wanted those elements... because those elements were actually there. (That and I don't like heavily editing the photos I put up here).

I did leave in one edit though... she was looking up at her hand, which made her pupils barely visible -- very freaky. So I "gave her" some pupils :D.

:clap: - leaving the background in doesn't take anything away from the shot IMO anyways.

Excellent timing too :D

Definitely not in B&W, though it was a bit distracting in color. Before cropping there was actually another person in the background too, which was really distracting...

I had to try very hard to get this shot. Had quite a lot of throwaways to go with it.
