I took several photos of a couple dancing at a local event a couple of years back. I've blended a few shots together to give a feel of the movement - it won't be everyone's cup of tea, but I like the frenzy it creates.
Thanks for looking

"Complete"- no way Barry - its an ongoing learning curve - and takes me hours to get the effect I am looking for, but its a great feeling when it comes together - this is all about the flow of movement, and I hope that comes across, and I'm glad you like it SmileSmile

Wonderful to see some alterative thinking, Helen, and the time spent was certainly worth while, you have achieved what you set out to, and in spades, I'd say. Excellent effect.
