Picture of a belly dancer at the end of her performance. The lighting on this was a total fluke, my flash was acting up and didn't go off but while the shutter was open another photographer must have taken his shot producing the effect you see.

Dreadful decision on downvoting anybody's Image Richard....
Charming image but a little too tight a crop on the r/h side ?
Sorry I cant make it plus 1 but lets level the playing field and bring her back up to Zero and shoot the ignoramous who hit the Minus button!
Regards Rick

Yes you were lucky with the lighting but the image works well.I agree the r/h side needs a bit more space. If its not on you original you could increase the canvas size a little then clone the dark area into it.It shouldn't be difficult and will improve the shot. Rather than downvoting we should be giving advice on how to remedy any faults. Tony.

Thanks all for your comments.

To be honest the negative vote doesn't worry me too much, I've been on here long enough to realise that everybody is entitled to their own opinion, what did irritate was that they didn't add a comment so I don't know if the negative mark is a vote on my tecnique or choice of subject matter.

I see what you mean about the crop, to be honest I edited this for upload in a bit of a hurry last night, I may add a different edit as a variation.
