Good to see you are starting to take more care with the background of these shots. Good poses by the dancers, very good, I love the way tthey have been caight here. One niggle (okay 2), I would llove to see you EXIF data cause I feel your shutter speed is not fast enough, I would love both dancers to be more in focus. However thats me, still an awesome shot :)

I have come an looked at this site about 5 times and have not commented until I sure how I felt about it. So here goes, The early works were strange and now technically proficient, something important was lacking and it was emotion. Honestly I did not like it very much, it brought to mind Mann Rays works. These last posts against the wall changed all that, there is energy, emotion, power, grace and humor here. What it did was seperate the dancer from the enviorment, which in my mind was important because enviorment is part of the process. The color is nice but was not necessary.
You really to it up a notch with these. I think slow shutter speeds to induce motion blurring would add a sense of time and motion. Also think about your lighting, but first of all keep shooting.

@Suby : exif data are on the right side of the picture.... 1/200...not enough light she was at 800 iso and the largest apperture.
@Ella : I agree with what was written. The background is way better on that series...too bad that there was not enough light. There is also the cutted feet... But eh, Still very good picture! I like it Ella! What you are trying is very difficult....I mean, that kiind of shot is usually done in studio with a lot of light. It is difficult to have really good light for that kind of outdoor shooting.
