Circus Dancers

Hi All
While in attendance of a local Circus School, I was faced with marvelous shooting material and the decision to leave it as I saw it. Then the it came to me I was not going to get the feeling and excitement that I felt there, to also move to a two denationalized plane of a photo. I simply had to to elucidate the cacophony of light, sound, and magic that was there. This school has some kind of relationship with Cirqe du Solie so their presentations are amazing when one realizes they are high school kids. My work on this image and others, is me being swept away by 2 1/2 hours of nonstop activity. Please enjoy!

The movement and action is definitely implied with your presentation. The vivid colors are appropriate for a circus atmosphere.The expression of the girl on the left is priceless, enhanced by the processing. Fascinating, I hope you'll share more from this series.
