Xiutlan Folkloric Ballet company in Puerto Vallarta. Lots of action and colour but had to rely on the stage floodlights for lighting..

Like a cross between a Toulouse Lautrec and a Degas - effective motion blur and lighting - like she's a dancer on a candlelit stage. Beautiful - started at a 9, bumping to a 10.

Good capture. The colors are a bit dull though.

Glorious. This looks like a painted illustration from the Fifties. Ah, this happy face appearing from out of the chaos, a woman who thrives on it!

I like this one. Shows nice movement here. It's blurry enough to show movement, but not too blurry to hide nice expression here. Good luck.

Recognizable, but still severely blurry, though not too messy. I like it, though perhaps bumping up the contrast to brighten the skirt may have given it some more punch.

Beautiful use of blur. Love the action conveyed, and the colors are a nice touch, as is her expression.

I like the "peek-a-boo" look on her face, and the motion blur is used well
