Thanks abc for your thoughts and comments and useful information. Even if we do not really agree, it lead me to an even better way, to my eye, to present this, but I do thank you for the prod. I am not sure you would stil approve but I like it much better. RBorud
Thanks for responding. Please bear in mind that I see this first through my own photographic sensibility. When I began to get serious about photography in 1959, lenses were soft, films grainy, colors so so. Many, many photographers wanted to overcome that and, fortunately, technology progressed. For me, digital is a dream come true and how I first judge photographs. That being said, each and every photographer can and should developer his or her own ideas and not apologize for it. What they should apologize for is grasping on to the fad or preset of the day.
I am sure you have a few more interesting shots so post them. A close-up of the dancer's face might prove interesting.
