#9 Dancers Three - Cheri

Really need some comments on this. I probably need to retake the picture cause it isn't as stubby as it looks.

Cheri, I think it's very interesting. Their movement is really well conveyed by the fabric and the stance of the women. I like the white shoes of the woman in the women in the background, especially the one on the left. It's an intriguing contrast. I also like the fact that the woman on the right is only partially shown. I don't know if that's how you painted it, or got cropped for this photo, but it works to bring additional mystery into the scene.

There's definitely a swing and a sway to this, Cheri. Love the way the woman in the foreground has her foot partially off the ground.

What troubles me is that there are two compositions here. The two ladies on the left, and the partial lady on the right. There's no connection between the two (for me). If the dresses touched/overlapped or the shadows overlapped more strongly, I might could go with it.

Hope this helps!

I think this is beautiful and I love the way the back of the dancer pops into the foreground and the light and contrast. I think one reason why it looks a little "stubby" is because she is bending away from the viewer but the twirling skirt kind of obscures that movement. Maybe actually just adding a couple of inches above her head might give her some space and make her seems taller too.

Thanks Kristin, No it's definitely the way I took the picture.
