Congratulations to You and your Grand Prize vision!!!

This image is strikingly gorgeous with all of colors, timing, etc. and yet when I look at this fine piece of imagery, I can imagine the "kick" of the dancers and hear their feet hit the floor to the rhythm of the music I hear through your photograph. That is an amazing capture!

And, inspirational for me, the new photographer to keep in mind.

Thank you for sharing.....and Congrats once again!
