Judges Comments

  • The movement in this image is very nice. I like how there's a nice rim of light outlining her, separating her from the black background. Sharp contrast in places, yet soft and flowing in others. The spotlight and twirl of the dress remind me of an old Hollywood movie. Very nice image in a technically difficult situation.
