Dance is a beautiful expression of human feelings and desires.

My first impression was the expressions on the faces -- almost as if the lifter is looking for a place to put her down. I like to see dancers perform on "River Dance" and can those are on U-Tube.

This is an excellent black and white photograph. I started out in black and white back in 1953 as color film was not yet out. So we used black and white in 35mm and 120x120 film. A good black and white, or color, for that matter, is as good as the individual snow crystals seen in the foreground. If you can't see the details then the photo could be improved. It looks like you got the details in this photo but I am curious what color the background was?

The dancers look a little 'cautious' - nice shot.
Re. your question on street photography in Italy. Not sure if there are any laws. Over here in the UK there is a big debate, and I think the law is that photography in public places is no problem. However, I did have a policeman outside the House of Parliament get a bit upset. He could see that my photos included the police and he said that was a 'security issue'. Sometimes they interpret the law how they want. The only thing I am careful of is children, I understand why people can get a bit upset about strange men taking their photos.

Have a good weekend.

Great shot for the day, Rune, as always! I was intrigued by their facial expressions, too. A little strained, maybe the one was heavier than they thought!! Enjoy your weekend!!

Sweet burden!The carrier seems to look for a place to put her down anyway.. :o)

Haddock said...

Wonderful picture and like that perfect balance.

The expression on the dancers faces made me giggle..Isn't it the guys that usually do the lifting?

She ain't heavy, she's my sister!

Mascha said...

A perfect photo of beautifil dancers!

paul said...

Looks a bit like hard work - great capture, though.

Jaz said...

Wow, this is fantastic. And look at the girl, she looks relax, no heavy burden! Awesome BW picture.

NatureFootstep said...

interesting image. Love how the cloth flows over the woman. Nicely captured.

Banjo52 said...

"The Burden" is a great title. So much for "He ain't heavy, he's my brother." The expression on the upright girl's face says it all. "This may be art, but it's damn hard work."

MyMaracas said...

Beautiful shot - the lighting is perfect, and the white against the black is so dramatic.

Oman said...

wish I could learn to shoot like that. what camera set-up did you use?

Laura said...

so beautiful!

LonettA said...

Brilliant photo in B&W!

Dragonstar said...

Fine photo! The girls look almost like a statue. Great portrait.

Barbara Martin said...

Very nicely done, RuneE. B&W catches the eye immediately.

Prairie Jill said...

Beautiful lighting! The white dresses stand out so well against the dark background. And the expressions are wonderful! Great shot.

EG CameraGirl said...

WOW!

James said...

Nice capture! The black and white is excellent and so is the lighting.

Mandy Southgate said...

What a fabulous capture! Just beautiful!

Irene said...

Godt sett, fanget og etterbehandlet. Et godt valg å velge sort/hvitt til dette bildet. Fint lys også, motivet kommer så fint frem med den mørke bakgrunnen. Skulle nesten tro du var i et studio!

God førjulsuke!

Monica said...

Pure art, leser jeg over, og kan ikke være mer enig!
Nydelig komponert, Rune, og liker veldig de flotte draperingene i kjolene,- lekkert!
