This one works really well Moira, because of the amount of movement going on with the Dancers. And mono, of course, is a MUST!

'Great vintage Image mood in monochrome & artistic effect with the slow Shutter speed!'

I really like this One, Moira~ Smile

The long exposure and rear curtain flash has worked really well here. I was viewing some of your others like this yesterday and enjoyed viewing them immensely, as I have this one.

Ghostly figures indeed - that couple in the center, the man's face clear, yet ghostlike - the energy, all wonderful.
