I don't have a title for this. I took it at the grand kids dance recital. Black and White with a sepia blend that I like in this one.

Very dramatic. It would be nice to have a few more details of the dancers. However, that is just a thought.

Lovely dramatic shot with the dancers laid in a pool of light. I feel sliding the right slider inwards in a levels layer would increase the drama even more. I would then erase the dark areas in the mask to take the levels back down again but leave the dancers with the added contrast.

Again, this is only how I see it, not how it should be done.

Oh man guys, thanks for the suggestion. I'm going to give it a try right now. BTW, anytime I post something here if you want to make edits yourself for instructional purposes I won't mind at all. After all, this is the site I learned my craft to begin with.

Well, looks like my PC needs looked at so when I get back up and running I'll re-post this shot with the suggestions that have been made. Thanks guys.

Can't wait to see it. I like it just how it is but I am anxious to see the new edit

As I said, just personal taste, but to me it's these subtle differences that personalise this very good image to my taste...

Thanks Kenny. The edit looks really good. Soon as the pc gets back I'm going to apply the levels adjustment.
