Wow, that's a very nice photo and I'm not even into Ballet. Great catch!! #463636

beautiful Penny, I can hear the music! #2887432

Lavone Vannoy 6/12/2006 6:40:36 PM

AWESOME shot, Penny! Stage photography is quite difficult. I've shot with the same 1600 ISO for Ballets. It is wonderful when you get a good shot. Perfect moment and GREAT angle! The color is mesmerizing. BRAVO! #2887732

Sue L. Cullumber 6/12/2006 7:53:12 PM

Penny, Very nice. Great colors! Did you also use flash with the 1600 ISO or without? #2887994

Janine Russell 6/12/2006 7:59:14 PM

Penny, excellent colors, detail, clarity, lighting and DOF. #2888034

Kay E. Mahoney 6/12/2006 8:37:59 PM

Nice capture. Love the colors. #2888199

Penny l. Haviland 6/12/2006 9:32:36 PM

Wow! Thank you everyone for your kind words. Flash photography wasn't allowed for this event. These little ladies stood still just long enough as if to wait for me to take the shot. The Minolta 7D also has the non-jiggle feature. Wasn't necessary to bring a tripod. Great fun! #2888380

Susan L. Vasquez 7/5/2006 8:17:08 PM

What I'm amazed about is you were able to shoot at 1600ISO and get such a clean NOISE! WOW! I only wish my Nikon would do that well.
Now for the shot itself, composition is perfection and lovely colors too. Well done! #2990473
