Re: NEX7 & Ballerina ( 1 B&W Image )

I do like the juxtaposition of her 'classic' style in an incongruous location, but I might have taken advantage of cropping in post to remove the buttress to the left of the arched groove & raise the base to exclude the concrete in the foreground.  I tried just that on your picture and was able to create a composition that emphasized the repeating arches, added the tension of looking to be 'over water' ... at the expense of losing centring for the dancer.  Just my humble opinion.

Not my image.  Reframing as a suggestion.
