:iconthe-photo-critics:

The line of bangles is very eye-catching - I can feel the rhythm straight off. Somewhere, someone must be beating a great big bass drum!

The colours leap out - the flash of sunshine saturates them really well, and also gives the image a focus point centre-left. The shadows on the arms in the mid-distance serve well to bring the eye back to that bright focus.
It would have been ideal if there was something a little more eye-catching in that spot - those shiny sewn-in bits of metal or something, would lift this from good to great. But I know that with real-world images, you can't control everything, but that's what makes for the really great ones.

The slight uneveness of the line of arms captures the sense of dance really well - people relaxed into it, and moving. The image almost seems to sway.

The tight cropping is good - this is not about the individuals here, but about the group, and their movement. I suspect that there is/ was a slightly better angle/ moment, that would make this a truly outstanding shot- either in terms of the framing/ cropping, or a slightly squarer angle. Maybe I would just like to see "the rest of the story" of the festival/ dance that is happening here.

This is a subject that is too easy to let drop into a 'tourist snapshot' mode, and you have really captured so much more here - a good piece of phiotojournalism - well done!

This is an amazing capture!

I feel you've captured it wonderfully well. The framing is brilliant, and the way you haven't included much of their features (in terms of the face and such) is brilliant... it makes us more focused on the colours, clothes, decoration, hands, etc.

I like the angle and how vibrant things are, as well. It's pretty interesting how you've captured a bit of motion, as well.

Very nice, overall. :nod:
