I am curious why are all your dancers outside. That is unusual I would think. It does not bother me its just that sometimes they have to compete with the background and that seems annoying. I like this one because you got close, I liked the last one because of the high angle, it kept Jasmine from competing againt the windows and lights of the back ground, all the while giving me a unique placement of subject. I am really starting to like this whole series of dancer's thier engery is coming thru.

I do like what you are trying to capture but to tell the truth in the last few days, the images are not getting any better. Not here to judge anyone or critic anyone for criticing sake but I just feel I have to say what I think here. (sorry no cool shot from me today).
Tell me something, why blur the image, is it intentional, what does it add to the image for you? What is the sessence of the image itself, maybe I am veiwing the shots in the wrong way, maybe you captured it this way intentional, if yes WHY?
Now for me if I was given these dancers to shoot what type of shots would I capture? (this is for me). Well you just have to wait till I get the opportunity and then I cross my fingers that I can pull the images off :)

In regards to your questions...Part of my shoots are all about trying out different techniques for the first time in lighting and weather conditions that are far from optimal.
Everything that I am posting of Jasmine & Ellis happened in TWO HOURS. In that time we played with different ideas, exposures, etc. The whole thing was pretty spontaneous.
I'm not using this site only to show my best shots but as a place to share my work in progress..as I grow as a photographer.
Thanks for your comments :)

great use of the blur, ella! Personally, I don't think bluriness is that bad in a picture especially if it's a moving creature. Humans are dynamic beings and I think by having bluriness it shows that essence. I definitely feel a sence of spontanaety in this shot...i also like the green grass and the green shirt. Lighting could probably be better, but like you said you were trying different things and this photo is just capturing what was happening in real life...which happened to be dark and rainy.
