Dancers in fountain.

12:00 full on sun. Dancers were hot so wanted to get a shot in the fountain.
24mm full sun.
We had a lot of fun getting this shot.

Cool shot, but I dont like the background. Foreground is really nice though.

Re: Dancers in fountain.

Really nice work on the dancers. Good action, good composition, good technique.

For me, the points of color in the background are very distraction -- the umbrellas and the Wells sign. However these could be easily removed in the computer.

After 15 years of digital I still miss the gurgling sound of the print washer in the darkroom.

Re: Dancers in fountain.

Fantastic shot. Great lighting, colors, exposure, timing...

The only thing that bothers me is that it is slightly off-plumb, I can feel it. Rotate it right a couple of degrees and the stability will uptick the drama even more...

Re: Dancers in fountain.

Good shots indeed. Well timed - and the dancers are pretty competent. You certainly chose a shot composition that works considering the background problems

Camera used?

What camera did you use for this image (w/ 24mm lens)? The color accuracy, clarity, resolution and above all composition are all superb IMHO. ulfie

D3 with the 12-24.

I wish that fountain was really in that setting....the possibilities.....

Cool looking edit...pretty clean for the minimal amount of time you probably spent on it. I wish I could do selections that well :).

Errol, just as a point of note, adding fake frames and borders detracts from the photograph, in nearly all cases.

Even if you need to add your name/website/etc, it's better to do so as a watermark, in a less intrusive portion of the photo.

Re: Great Shot! Sorry just had to play.

I agree. Brightly-colored frames, especially draw the eye away from the subject.
