I think this is a stunning image. I know it's inevitable in a situation like that that someone's head might just get cut off, but I actually don't think it matters too much in this case. Yes, there's a small bit of empty space bottom right; no, it's not a 'tidy' image ... but it is so effective. I love the implied motion of the dancers and the vibrancy of the predominant yellow colour. Oddly enough, without the bright highlight on the dark-haired dancer in the middle, it wouldn't be anywhere near as pleasing for me.

You could try different crops for a more 'tidy' composition (square, letterbox etc) but another part of me wants it to stay exactly as it is. It really reminds me of an Arther Rackham 'Fairy' illustration, and for that reason alone it gets a big thumbs up from me Smile

Thanks Tanya,

I fully understand what you mean re the cropping, I have several other shots of this and am continuing to work at getting the best image.

Exceptional, love the colours - the impressionist Edgar Degas comes to mind.
