After 58 votes it reached 7.00

I hope it can stay here ;)

It's not only holding but it's constantly improving. Now at 7.16 (reached its highest at 7.19).

Now I'm seriously hoping to get another 7+, the first of the year :)

[Jan. 20th, 2013 03:37:44 AM]

Constantly but slowly going down.

At 102 votes 7.09

[Jan. 20th, 2013 04:58:21 PM]

7 hours before rollover the constant slow fall brought the image at 7.04 so the 7 barrier is very close...

Oh yeah! So glad this ribboned and got a 7+ score!

This is Ramona, first time a model for me. She's a real dancer and a friend of mine. She took 45 minutes driving to reach my place and I should really say: thank you!

It's a basically straight from camera shot. I've taken the photo in BW and in Photoshop I adjusted very slightly the exposure on her but without spot editing, except for the ground that I did't want too dark.

I can't believe I never commented on this. It is both graceful and charmingly accessible.

This is beautifully done, Alessandro. I agree with Lydia, a print for your model would thrill her.

Beautiful job on the lighting.

Very good portrait, excellent tones. Unfortunately, since she covers her shoe with the hand and there is no sign of motion in the image, it doesn't represent the art of dance too well.

01/15/2013 11:24:50 AM
I would hope to see this in the top ten.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2013 12:28:59 AM
Lovely PP, just wish she was maybe actually dancing instead of sitting, still sure it will do well for you!
