1st place
vanishing point by lsdsoft

Jimbobedsel: You must be a mountain climber. Are you going to attempt Everest? LOL. Fantastic shot.

verenabloo: I cannot begin to imagine where you must have been standing in order to take this photo! Pretty frightening to be so surrounded by snow and mountains this close. A great photo tho. Verena

3rd place
A Little Girl's Dream by dancer3660

DTwiegraphics: I like how there is a "deeper" meaning to this shot for you.

koca: Interesting idea, good shot.

purmusic: :o)

You're a dancer? Really?

Kidding, kidding.

Could tell by some of your earlier images by the positions/posturing you assumed. Of which, I forget now (might have been 'first position' that I am recalling in one of yours.)

That stuff aside ... I like the DOF you employed here.

And of course, me, my fingers and pea brain have a suggestion ... hope you don't mind. As I was just thinking about this myself.

Your lighting source.

The 'magical hours of light', could still be used.

I found that the combination of early morning light in my case, as the living room is the room that gets hit by it (easterly'ish orientation) and achieves a warm, lovely glow ... diffused by the curtains that I have hanging ... really kicks things up a notch or two inside.

A companion image to your photo here, perhaps?

As the light quality presented here resembles, to my eyes, that of stage lighting. It works, of course on that level and maybe as you intended.

The background figurine looks like Royal Doulton, but I am not familiar with that of the one taking center stage? (Just curious, that's all.)


Last words, don't underestimate passion. That is def something that does translate on stage. And ... to your audience.

Much like your image here. :o)
