wow. excellent composition and follow-through. i like the fragility in this shot, with the flower petals on the ground and the lady performing what looks like intricate footwork with the dancing. like the DOF too. great shot!

Very very nice. I especially love the soft flowers and whites, (diffuse glow?) DOF works very well too. Great shot!

Wow, beautiful this really is an expression of elegance. I love the soft flowers on the ground. Did you use some soft filter? Beautiful expressive shot.

great angle and composition. a pity the camera metering was thrown off by the bright light on top and underexposed the feet. try to fix that with level. It bugs me that the subject is so dim. other than that, top notch.

@Kelvin Chan: Thanks for the comment Kelvin. yeah the feet are a little dim. my attempts at lightening them further resulted in them becoming really grainy so i decided to leave them like this.
