Leanne!! Gorgeous!! Must ask, did you achieve this translucent glow via camera or with Photoshop??? I just love this shot! I have been attempting to "transparentize" (?) a certain image and so far, I am not satisfied with the results so I thought I'd ask.... this is four-star!

Thankyou Nadya - this is an in camera technique, used to record movement. I use a slow camera speed, held the camera still, and shot the dancers movements. I was lucky in that there were banks of windows in front and back of me, that provided the wonderful light.

Excellent knowledge of photo technique is only partly explanation of this photo. To make it you should have the feeling for energy of movement. Bravo

You are right, Dragan - The spirit of the dance is the number one reason for taking the photo. This piece was a small portion of Swan lake, and I wanted to capture the feeling of flight and grace. Hopefully I have accomplish this.
