Olga placed 13th at the World Ballroom Dancing Championships last year. Next month she is taking part at the World Championships in Florida.
I have never seen anyone dance so elegantly before. Watch for yourself, the championships will be televised :)

RIGID 1 a : deficient in or devoid of flexibility <rigid price controls> <a rigid bar of metal> b : appearing stiff and unyielding <his face rigid with pain>

hmmm..she does not look rigid. Look at her face. She is doing this with ease. No pain involved that I can see.

Congrats for the position... It is amazing how different points of view people can have: what for me it is an artificial, forced and rigid composition (that is why I do not see it elegant), for others it is meaningful.

I repeat my comments: colors combination is perfect... but I do not get the feeling of elegance from the picture; my fault :)

As Kiwiness said : do not take too much seriously my comments... not at all. Let's continue enjoying photographs.

The title says it all. Very nice picture.

My easy, clear choice for the blue ribbon; there's no contest. Flawlessly executed, perfectly lit, dazzlingly composed, and the list goes on. Congratulations!

Exceptional high-key portrait, graceful and charming. The "hint" of the right foot is a great touch. The white backgrund is perfect for the aqua blue dress. The thin line as a border works fine but I wonder if it is needed.

Wonderful image. Full of grace and life. I wish it will be a ribbon. Blue will become it very well. 10 from me

Very true to the title. A nice image, composition. The lighting makes the subject seem a bit flat, and the resolution seems low - not a lot of details when you look close.

Beautiful picture. The lighting and exposure are spot on. But it feels a tiny bit unsharp in the model's hair, face and hands particularly.

Something is up with the shadows underneath the dress though. The highlights seem to indicate the main light is to the right slightly, but the fake-looking soft shadows under the dress are strange. The dress is sitting in piles as if it were on the ground, but there is still a shadow visible undernear. Is it some weird illusion, or a bad Photoshop job of adding phony shadows? I like it a little less now that the shadows trouble me.

Nice. I like the way how theres no harsh shadows and the border matches with the clothing of the model nice.
