From my first shoot of the year. This is a new project I wanted to start for 2013 and hopefully the images will improve and diversify as I go along. I've had mixed feedback so far on these 3 images. There are more from different location but these were possibly my favourites and first to process.

1. I like the aspect of the people watching here. I was also really surprised when I turned around that over my shoulder were lots of people shooting with all different cameras. Was great fun to do for sure.

2. For this shot, I spotted the yellow dorr from far away and thought it would work well with the colours of the dress. Some folk have said the wreath is unforunate, some say it works. I think I kinda like it as it reminds me what time of year we shot it.

3. This was my favourite of the three for the solitude of the shot and the contrast of the dress/dancer against the building and columns. I also like the juxtaposition of subject and environment, but of course, this has been done often recently.

This is a really cool concept, I like it. I like the processing on #1, too.

Nice stuff and I like the concept. #1 is very nice. Great conversion and the onlookers add to the story of the image.
Im looking forward to more from you.

Very good work on both your parts. Great concept, and I also like pic 1's realistic, street feel, with the onlookers. Must be pretty cool to have others snapping away while doing a shoot!

Nice shots, really good idea!

I'm a breakdancer, but i doubt i would get the same effect from people staring compared to a ballet dancer, mainly because of the total opposite clothing of the poeple around and the dancer!

Wow.. phenomenal set. I really like the second photo the blue dress against the yellow door is just great. I do really like the third photo too. The movement between very structured, vertical pillars.. just great once again.

Thank you. You possibly wouldn't attract the same amount of attention perhaps, but it certainly would still be great to photograph!

Thank you very much. Not many people have commented on the one with the yellow door but I really liked the colours in it.
