4 MarioP   (12/7/2004 6:18:48 AM)

very nice picture Laurel. I love the balance of all those colors. IMO one of your best in this series and I can hear the music..
6 Roger Ranney (Don't block the shot)   (12/7/2004 11:29:40 AM)
I love the lighting and subtle color..
7 David Lavash   (12/7/2004 11:38:30 AM)
IMO Best thing you've ever entered on this site, Laurel.

Small suggestion to make even better would be get rid of the girl on the far right that is half cut off and clone out the small bit of the extra girl on the far left.

A very pleasing capture from this show Laurel, you fraze the action well, I like the lighting and colors, the dancer in front really stands out nicely! I like Kris's ideas for cropping and cloning. I also have a second cropping suggestion even a bit tighter that removes both dancers on the right.
suggested crop >>
10 gdanger (George Dangerfield)   (12/7/2004 5:14:12 PM)
This one is similar to Kris's suggestion.
suggested crop >>
11 gdanger (George Dangerfield)   (12/7/2004 5:15:39 PM)
A third cropping idea.
suggested crop >>
12 joe bellantoni   (12/7/2004 5:28:32 PM)
all of the crops are nice Laurel...and this is the best one of the nutcracker that you produced...very nice
13 Laurel Austin   (12/7/2004 6:06:29 PM)
Just found out you can't crop and reload a contest entry. At least I have it for my own files...thank you everyone.
