Awesome image here, and so sweetly done. It look like they are flying..... The lighting is excellent.....

*Critique Club*

Hi there. The fist thing I notice is the negative space. I think it works very well here to enhance the visual appeal of the image. They are leaping into the photo...very nice. I do notice a couple light areas in the background/negative space, right in front of the dancers. Not sure if this was something in the background that was slightly illuminated, or what it is.
This is really a beautiful image, proven by the score and placing in the challenge.
I like the simplicity of it really. Very nice crisp focus helps us to get a lot of detail in the dancers, and that is great.
Also, the lighting works well too. I like how they are almost outlined by light. Nice black and white. I find that it works very well here.
Not much more to say, I think you hit the nail on the head with this shot. My only suggestion/complaint are those light areas of the background. They do appear odd. Not sure if some contrast/curves adjustments might help that...but outside the challenge, you could definately do some cloning on them.

Very nice! I really like the composition. The blown highlights on the side and arms of the dancers is my only quibble with this fine image. Congrats on the ribbon!

A new personal best, your first ribbon and your first 7. Now that is a hat-trick if ever I saw one.
Congratulations on a job well done, you deserved this ribbon and I hope there are many more to come.

This is a great photograph under what looks to be challenging lighting conditions. The only thing I would like better is to be closer to the subjects but still have them off center in the frame. The negative space to the left gives the dancers somewhere to travel and directs the eye to the subjects imediately. Well done.

I'm on a poorly calibrated monitor, so I go more for composition at the moment than other elements. Excellent composition, and good strong visual storytelling. As a side note, not sure if it's there for you, but I have some odd white ghosting to the left of the dancers. Not dinging for it. 9
