Carnival 2006 #19 : Dance to the music

This is the second shot I was talking about yesterday. I'm not too happy with it but I'll not mention why. I'll leave you to do the criticism.

Love it, love it did you use fill flash for this shot?

im looking at your carnival archive.it seems you prefer to take your subjects from a certain distance.Any particular reason why?
this picture is like most of your carnival pics.They have a certain ring to it
Jide Alakija: When you shoot 17mm on a fullframe camera you get a fish-eye effect and it looks like you're far away from the subject. If you're referring to close ups then yeah I did do some, I'm just not posting them in this series.
Awwwwwwwww this is lovely!!!!
I think it's an excellent shot ..
mmmh, I cannot understand what there is not to like about this shot; but hey this is the Kija Man»»»»High standards, very high standards smile. I'll return to see if any critique is posted
Jide Alakija: Okay I'll tell you what I don't like or rather don't feel very comfortable with in this shot. The first thing is with the balance of light. I feel that there's too much light on the right compared to the left. Distractions behind the queen are annoying me and finally I'm not too happy with the work I've done to the sky.
I liked this a lot. The effect provided by the wide angle lens is awesome.
Could you please share the processing technique you use?
top stuff..black bckground really puts the focus onto the central figure...
