Ahhhh! Que foto tan hermosa! And they look "real" too, posed, yes, but like they really know what they're doing. Her expression in particular is excellent. The toning, if there, is very subtle (I seem to see a bit of it on her face, not sure). ~10

Energy/Range/Story: 9/8/8
Composition/perspective/manner: 8/7/8
Aesthetics/Technical: 9/9
Presentation: 8
Total: 8.2
Vote: 8

Remarks: The company of an image like this is as venerable as it is well occupied, which opens it for much "racy" competition, making it difficult to award 10s. Another consideration would be the fact that the photograph itself is an "hommage" to its subject - and an excellent one at that. What is interesting here, that all these aspects compliment one another seamlessly and without attracting any undue attention to anything but the sum of their parts - in what I would call a "great photograph and accomplishment".

Fantastic studio capture. Your models really convey the emotion well, and the steel-blue duotone is an excellent choice.

This is a wonderful studio shot and very professional looking. My only nitpick would be the dark spot on her left elbow. Maybe would have had her left had down on his shoulder just a bit more. In any case, this is WAY better than what I could do. :) If these really are dancers, I'll be they're really happy with it.
