...floating in dream...

Uploaded: June 28, 2004


Took this photo under a very poor lighting condition at night on the beach in Aruba. She is a member of dancing group and was doing Tahitian and she was the last one to leave the stage... cloned out the platform she was on.

Nicole Boenig-McGrade August 14, 2004

Hi Nobi, firstly congratulations!!! Great shot!!! Would you mind sharing what settings you had for this shot? I am about to do some for a ballet company. Kind regards, Nicole #708728

Nobu Nagase August 15, 2004

Hi Nicole,
I would think that you would have much better lighting than I had to play with on the beach around 10:00pm in Aruba but, then some scenes in a ballet would be rather dark as well. And I assume any kind of flush would be restricted... I will try to get setting info today and email to you...

I just viewed your gallery and I thought it was interesting that while you are in Australia, you have many photos from Europe, I especially noticed of Paris, etc...
Images of train motion are very nice.

Nicole Boenig-McGrade August 15, 2004

Thank you very much for you comments Nobi. I'd really appreciate that! #712081

Nobu Nagase August 16, 2004

I emailed you the information you requested from Betterphoto "contact Nicole" option here...
If by any chance you did not receive it, please let me know... #715308
