If you have this dancer's e-mail address you could recommend Sure for Men which is fairly strong - even during the toughest routines - although the roll-on is quite ineffectual, especially if applied after a shower and the armpit is not fully dried.

The photo on the other hand is odourless, but has a fairly tight crop at the top, so a bit more space would be good. It does lack a bit of atmosphere or context which could have been assisted by some crowd or judges in the background. Otherwise a sound capture.

I'd like to see just a bit more space above his head. It almost looks like his arm is up to ward off the edge of the frame. Good capture otherwise, especially his expression of intensity. It shows clearly that it's certainly not as easy as they always make it look :)

I feel the image is too tight on top.. Otherwise, great capture!

It doesn't look like there was much light and you really pulled off a great shot
