    Default Dancer in Hatyai

    1. in what area is critique to be sought?
    I will have general feedback.

    composition, lighting etc... overall whether it's a gd picture or not

    2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?

    I hope that this picture will be able to let the person tht look at this be able to feel the passion and energy this dancer puts in to her performance.

    the viewer should also feel the atmosphere.

    3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
    in a disco at hatyai.

    low lights, loud music

    4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture

    i personally feel pretty satisfied with this shot as it seems rather stunning to me or maybe i'm jus easily pleased

    Perhaps it's just me, but because of the lack of lights (spot lights etc) included in the image, a viewer may not be able to tell why the skin tones are so pinkish. The sway of the hair alone may not be enough to portray the "energy".

    My 2 cents

    i think the shot was pretty good considering that the subject is "fastly" moving. as you've mentioned, the lighting is low and can see some noise; something that is better to have than having an image that is blurred. I doubt if flash is allowed during these performances
    I shoot with my A7II . I shoot with my Kalashnikov AEG. I just love shooting ;)

    Hmmm, I'm guessing this is a cropped image? So there's really nothing to talk about in terms of composition. Subject is in a "tight" frame.

    Lighting is obviously bad,in the photography context. Beyond your control, but if lighting is bad, I wouldn't bother taking it (unless the person/performance/location etc. is important to you!)

    Someone mentioned this is better than having a blurred image, but if you're trying to show passion and energy, sometimes a slower shutter speed might portray that.

    To be honest, I feel like the subject is striking a pose in a studio (albeit the lighting). No sense of 'striking' movement or energy other than the hair. Perhaps you could have caught her in another dance move that is more pronounced instead of one that is of her standing back, tilting her head back.

    Good effort!

    Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.

    good effort considering it's low light.

    but composition is too tight..can't get a sense of the atmosphere/mood. without the bg, can't really feel her passion/energy. mayb u could have captured some a sense of her dancing..currently it just looks like a pose.
