Hello from the Critique Club. Thank you for entering the DPChallenge, Dreams.

Great capture!! A ballerina taking center stage, and dancing in to a dream. Very elegant and sophisticated composition. It almost looks like she is posing for you. The lighting and framing creates a great mood. The shadows and silhouettes also add depth to your total image.

The upper background in black is a great idea. It separates the top half from the bottom half. It gives it a perfect color tonal balance.
The fact that this a "dream" shot gives the subject a bit of mystery and intrigue. I am sure that most people don't dream with all the details or they don't remember them as well. You don't need to see the dancers face to appreciate the imagery.

Even though its a dreamy photo of a dream sequence, there is still enough highlights and details to see and explore more of the dancer and her movements.

The large white spot lighting on the floor, distracts the viewer, but only in minor way. Actually, the white spot lighting also gives the photo lost reference point. In other words, its like another point where the dream or photo is taking the viewer.

Very well done. I am sure that this photo will be very popular with our voters.

Good luck in your next DPChallenge. Zagman.

While the bright spot on the floor is a bit annoying I still like the concept and the way it is done. Especially the way the backlight gives her body profile.

I like the sense of movement here. the model's pose and clothing works well with the dream theme, and the imperfect shadow/lighting work is impressive to my eyes. 10

I love the color tones and the shadows. It's very dreamlike but stands on its own as a great photograph too! Good job.
