Thank you for the second spot, Maureen. Thanks for hosting/judging this week. I hope you get some good rest.
And congrats to OhLook and Sibil.
All nice shots this week. Definitely a little harder subject, at least for me.
I recalled a series of photos I took near the Public Market in Seattle several years ago.
Definitely an interesting scene. One not at all uncommon here. Seattle is a pretty free spirited city. :-)

Congrats to OhLook and Raven. It was definitely a difficult challenge.
I also thought JimAskew's shot was very clever.

A tough challenge, so congratulations to the winners for good shots all at least somehow related to dancing.

'Still" shots of dancing are tough. I've tried many times in the past to take photos of a friend's Scottish Country Dancing activities and none have been satisfactory, so I gave up and now only take video any type of dancing.

I am well, not sick... just going through a bout of insomnia so feel a bit drained. I have grandkids today-Thursday and a newborn coming tomorrow for a photo shoot. The good news is that I am taking the month of July basically off; I have one newborn due July 19 and we are going to make a 5 day run to Niagara Falls, then come back to visitors from the East Coast. Not exactly taking a month off but squeezing in a little time for some R&R.

I will not be here to participate July 4 & 11 but I am taking my Pro1 on our trip to hope to find some shots to use in upcoming challenges.


Life is hard...but I just take it one photograph at a time.

Congratulations to OhLook, Raven, and Sibil...excellent entries indeed! I will have to admit that I was stumped on this challenge so I came up with my "Dancing Shadows" photo while watching TV the other night...I glanced up and it hit me...the shadows from the ceiling fan were dancing across the ceiling :-) Thank you to OhLook and Sibil for recognizing my attempt.

As a wedding photographer I have 1000's of dance photos in my library but alas all made with my Pro gear. Here is a photo made with my 30D & 17-55 f/2.8 EF-S IS and my Speed Lite 580EX Flash that is one of my favorites :-) The expression on the Bride's face says it all!

Congratulations to the winners and to Maureen, the Host and Judge (A bit late, I know).
I thought I had the perfect photos for this challenge until I realized all were shot wit a DSLR :(

It was exactly two years ago: 29 June 2014, the Closing Gala of the Ballet Academy of my little granddaughter.
They presented, with the help of the National Ballet, a fully staged 'Sleeping Beauty' by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.
The youngest ladies were the Little Red Riding Hoods. Of course, there was a wolf, and the Wicked Fairy Godmother was there as Carabosse, but she looked like Maleficent, after the Disney characters.

The young teens looked and danced almost as professional 'ballerinas'. There were no male kids in the courses, they were chosen among the youngest professionals of the National Ballet.

It is not the Imperial Mariinsky Theatre, but it was a great performance.
I set the highest usable ISO (800) and used the stage lighting that was great.
Enjoy the thumbnails bellow. If you like, click the links for a slightly larger images in my online gallery, or click on each gallery image to see the next photo of the set.

All beautiful photos, Rafael, and if your camera had been eligible you would have surely walked away with the top spot this week.:-)

Thank you, teekay. Not my merit at all. I went there with the idea of shooting a few pictures of my little Red Riding Hood and enjoy. I was surprised by the quality of the presentation, far above the usual level of an academy course closure and decided to take as many pictures as possible. The drawback was that I saw the show mostly through the small viewfinder.

Great captures, and sometimes that is the point... to capture the moments.

Perhaps a sacrifice, to record, rather than enjoy. But it gives your grand-daughter a view, a perspective of herself, and an appreciation. All-in-all, an affirmation no doubt.

All the best,
Carlo
