Fabulous image, technically flawless- it defies category and asks more questions than it answers. In this I see, beyond the obvious subject, a really remarkable dialog between artist and model, maybe more the true subject on another plane. The poetry of motion and form is like Matisse in a photograph. The photo also suggests by its qualities that it is part of a larger body of work, and I can't help but wonder how this would function as a published work, like a small sketchbook, full only of photgraphs without text. Enchanting, enigmatic, sensual. A world complete unto itself. Chapeau!

Superb example of backlighting or transparent fabric to achieve a backlit affect. I wouldn't be surprised if the model was 5'2" but the pose is so long and flowing and graceful she appears much taller. Normally I don't like lined or patterned fabric for such shots but this is very effective--I'm surprised at how effective it is (you have me now thinking of places where I might get a similar fabric). I actually wish you'd been able to shoot this when the streets weren't so busy--the cars and people are a distraction compositionally. Or perhaps shooting with a narrower DoF to blur out some of that background clutter. The nature of the architecture/buildings works very well with the pose (which I associate with classical ballet). This is a lovely piece of work. Nice concept and very well executed.

the dance pose.  the feather light dress flowing around her athletic silhouette. 
that pose (bite index finger) and the old school buildings of Paris.  The architecture of Life.  Bravo. :-)
