I love the sense of movement in this piece and the slight obstruction of viewing her face, showing her concentration but also adding some mystery to her. Very nice B&W piece :)

My Word... I can study and stare at this shot for ages and beyond... seriously it's that captivating.

The concept of dance is captured just with the right note, time and clarity. The pose, that moment where the ornaments of her top are sharply "floating" in stasis, the introspective yet immersive expression... this really expresses the power and joy of dance in spades. Dakota herself really helps bring out such exuberance via elegant movment and healthy curves (very evident in the weighted body outline and smooth yet firm upper arm contours), just everything is full of life here. Also choice to go with monochrome for this shot is perfect in bringing out the best of light + shadow dualplay, colour would have distracted from the overall spirit and expression of forms here. :star::heart::star:
This is such an excellent piece full of story and vitality. Thank You So Much for this shot! :iconpolitebowplz:
