: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!
