Belly dancer Na'ilah Vaughn showed me her routine and I knew right away I had to incorporate her gorgeous hair in motion.

Greetings from the Critique club

An appealing portrait that contributes well to the open challenge

A great action shot, all credit to you for seeing the potential in her gorgeous red hair and for making it feature so effectively in this lovely portrait, the shape of her hair as it falls is adding a really dynamic element to the image. The lighting is good and uniform with good detail throughout but that small wisp of hair catching the light is forming a small highlight that draws the attention I think it would benefit from toning down to the same as the rest of the hair. The only other comment I have is that it feels just a little too tightly cropped, I would like her to have a little more space on both sides but its still a lovely image that deserved a higher score.

Apologies for the delayed critique, Sid

Few people have the skills to capture a great vibrant portrait such as this. Don't be disheartened by their 2's, 3's and 4's. Keep shooting. 7 from me.

Excellent capture, looks like her hair is getting a mind of its own and taking flight.

Well done, hats off to the composition. Very demanding to look at, and my guess is, that the views to this image will go off the charts. Great job.
