Butterfly Nocturne
...Latin night festivity on Aruba beach under a poor lighting condition, enabled me to capture the motion of this beautifully costumed dancer, dancing like a butterfly...

How interesting... I just uploaded a photo I took using a similar effect (dancer and motion blur of skirt) about two months ago! This is a good one... dramatic blur and expression!

Nobi, comment is always necessary when an image is worthy of comment and this one certainly is. Just beautiful, wonderful color and the way you caught the motion of her costume.
