    I was quite busy and lacks motivation to shoot that's why i missed a lot of challenges since i joined this site. Hopefully i can create an entry for the next challenge. As i read through your different views and comments, it gives me encouragement and knowledge to create a better photo.

    I'm not sure why you waited so long between entries, but I hope you enter again soon!!! Congrats on a great photo and a great 2nd place finish.

    I think you captured the spirit of this occasion really well. I believe that concentrating on the two women and having the rest of the photo as a 'supporting cast' is an excellent approach. Good job with a difficult subject.

    Woah! i can't believe i've made it to the 2nd spot :) Thanks for giving your observations on my photo.. it is a lucky shot for me that i patiently waited for that moment where i stood. I'm really struggling with focus because i'ts my first time using a yongnuo lens for an event and low light photography. I still need to learn a lot especially in composition and practice more.

    I am impressed that you managed to catch some interesting faces in this low light gathering. In my favs.

    I like the way the central girl stands out in the crowd. High in my faves.

    This is a wonderful scene, with the flashes of light in the sky, and the exuberance of the dancers. Good choice to use b&w. The blurred face in the foreground is a little unfortunate, but the look on the central figure more than makes up for it.

    An interesting scene. Love the expression of the girl in the center. At first look it felt familiar to me, then I read the caption and it's in my country.

    A feel a great image here would require a tighter framing on a few selective faces....clearly the woman in the middle is where your eye goes but the out of focus head in the lower right is a major headache....if I was going to stay with this framing I'd clone in a new in-focus head if I had the choice.
Remarkable shot for a candid.
If you shot other frames, I wouldn't mind seeing your alternate choices in outtakes.

    Certainly fits the theme. What are the spots in the sky? They look too big to be stars. You certainly have captured the emotion of the children at this celebration. Reminds me of the Anthony Comyn style, which is a compliment.

    At first it seemed as if you staged this shot, but I am sure you didn't. The young lady, in the center of the pic, is staring directly at you and for that moment was literally a participant with you, as you captured the moment. Awesome job!

    Nice capture of the activity and costumes, but the image seems busy - needs a stronger focal point.

    Nice shot - perhaps a closer crop on the central face. Have more confidence, and see if you can catch more faces. my #1

    very well done... the back lit smoke in the background works well here... in TT

    I like the composition and subject matter, including the smokey background with barely visible people. Nice. I might have pushed the iso up so as to get a better shutter speed and eliminate the blurring of some of the dancers. As it is, blurring does not add a sense of motion here, just blurred.

    This is a nice shot, I like how you placed the one girl in the middle as a focal point. Looks like a pretty crazy festival! In my favorites.
