|Greetings from the Critique Club
Is that there is really a bit too much going on in the shot.
Technical (Comp, lighting, color, focus, Processing):
Your center framing works well for the composition on this but the background only distracts. This shot would be well served on a clean, black background. If possible I would suggest composing the shot so that the background was mostly empty space.
The lighting, aka the fire, gives off a bit of an odd color to the ground and background, perhaps a long shutter speed coupled with a rear curtain sync flash would help that. The image is a bit noisy and I think you could have dropped the iso down quite a bit since you were using such a long shutter speed.
I would suggest not as long of a shutter speed, 15 seconds is a really long time and 3 seconds would have been plenty and you could have gotten smoother light trails and the whole image would flow better (example here )
Meets the challenge but it doesn’t scream “dance”. If this wasn’t entered in a dance challenge I am not sure I would think this was a photo of dancing but regardless I like your take on the subject and it was interesting.
This has all the makings of a really artistic shot but for me some technical work takes away from that.
Not a bad finish at all for your third challenge and great job on a personal best. This shot scored very well for the challenge and you received some excellent comments during voting, all in all I would say it is a success.
