Thanks to my ever patient daughter, I managed to get this one in just at the last moment. She was doing some incredible jumps, mostly because it was past her bedtime and she would do anything not to have to go to bed!
She was actually jumping really high in the air, but I decided to go with the look of her as a crazy dancer, which she IS!

Sadly my lighting and basic editing didn't give me room to make the background really white without blowing out some of the neck, which is a shame, but I'm happy with the pose and my own advanced version is looking good :-)

Awesome in basic, I love her form and how her face is hidden. Are you going to show us the advanced edit?

This is very interesting shot. I take it if it was any sharper it would show imperfections in the skin? Highlights in the hair really do this picture justice.

Very nice image, I think it suits the challenge perfectly. The only criticism I have is, on my monitor anyway, the models neck has blown out and completely disappeared.

Very free form showing great joy and fitness - a good demonstraction. The subject could be a little darker given the stark white background. The neck and chin of the dancer fade into the background - a subtle difference in background color would have enhanced this image to near perfect if a darker and more contrasty subject was used. A solid effort.

I love high-key stuff like this. Her hair is just fantastic, so much motion.

I think this is a good shot that could have been great with more contrast.
