Taken at the top of a hill overlooking Lake Hollywood in Los Angeles, CA. My first submission ever, and this is the photo that finally pushed me to submit one. Each time I've looked at it, I see a leaping or dancing figure.

Adjusted Saturation, Hue, Brightness and Contrast removed some noise and sharpened then used the soft focus for glowing edges. Finally cropped out a small shrub that was in the bottom right.

Love the creamy colors in the background and the sharp, dark silhouette in contrast. I'm not sure about the halo around the dark area though, I wish the silhouette stood more on it's own.

interesting abstract, I didn't see the dancer til I saw your title! seems to have a halo around the whole thing which is a little distracting but as an abstract it's very colourful and nice to look at

Indeed a ballerina! Very well seen, and quite nicely presented as well.

I really like the color and love the processing!9

OK, but too central for me

Interesting, and matches your title very well. I wonder if it would be possible to process so that the 'glow' around the stem and leaves could be lost?
