hard to avoid the windows, Joe

I was wondering why you chose to include the strong white "cut-outs" of the windows along the top edge of the frame. I found that rather a discordant element that only seems to detract from the composition by dragging your eye off the top of the photograph...


I tried cutting off the mirror to the right, to make this less narrow, but I think it works better the way Irakly presented it

this already had a significant crop (unless stitched as a pano, which I doubt) & the light is what gives this photograph vitality to me along with the diversity of actions from each dancer

dancers make for grand photographic subjects, but often ply their art in challenging photographic circumstances

good to see Detroit thru your lens, Irakly
