Dancers

I had company last week and with them came the opportunity to watch some performers. Sadly, no flash allowed. But I managed to bump the ISO up to 800 and catch this shot.

Enjoy.

Re: Dancers

Great shot JP. Isn't it amazing what you can capture these days with high ISO and have it turn out this good? Well done.

#1 - I'm tinkering with the CS3 BW adjustment layer. Added a little grain on a separate layer while I was at it.

#2 - Based on AFrazier method.

Re: Dancers

Great conversion Danny. The BW adjustment layer in CS3 is simply wonderful. I'm glad you are enjoying and experimenting.

Flame Nymphs.

Used one of the stand-a-lone flames as a sample and used GIMP's Resynthesizer filter to create this rendering (for the most part).

Pans People - who are they?
But I bet you've been to see "Cats" though.

Re: Dancers

Sorry for not replying to the posts. I've been out of pocket for a few days and had lots of catch up to do once I got back home.

I really like that everyone follows his/her own path and all the individuality I see when I look at the work. I thought this was a pretty hard pic to work with. Yet again, I've been pleasantly surprised by all the talented, great interpretations.

Thanks again for having fun with this picture.

Here's mine.

Janet

Talking Re: Dancers

Nice orignal image, I always liked shooting state lighting. I had to photograph the members of "Stomp" once and what a treat sometimes to shoot something already lit for you. It can be real dark or blown out sometimes but the 70-200/2.8 makes it a breeze. I'd suggest that lens to anyone. Thanks for the image.
Everyone did a great job but Danny, Joeven and Peter. Kudos, nice schtufff!!

I love those bubbles and a great job rendering them. Reminds me of a movie "Photographing Fairies." If you guys have not seen that I'd suggest it, nice film.
