Ballerinas in Motion, the Nutcracker by 

this was taken just for fun – during a performance of the Nutcracker. We were not allowed to use flashes of course, and I was very far in the back of the auditorium. I was quite pleased with the “fun” element of the shot – of the ballerina’s moving but I still got a fairly clear photo of that moment in a zoom shot. Then during intermission we ALL got yelled out for taking photos with our cameras even WITHOUT the flashes we were disturbing the dancers – so I put my camera down and sulked (smiles).

Just taken as I said for fun – there is a challenge on motion and I may or may not enter this one but loaded it due to that challenge.

    This is a great example of a hot shot in spite of itself. It’s a beauty!!

  • thanks Sheila! I think if I have time I will switch my entry in the motion challenge and put this one in.

    Outstanding, so very beautiful, I love it:)
    Keep going on my artist friend.
    Take care,

  • thank you Sunny – sorry I never noticed your comment here. I don’t get to the ballet very often and they actually were annoyed that people were taking photos, so not sure if I will have a chance like this again, but it was a fun try.
