"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."

Love the composition of this, the silhouettes and the women with a disapproving expression looking at them, the more I look the more see.

Just a marvelous treatment and a whol lotta work on your part is what made this thing so doggone special >I love this from the bricks in the wall to the nasty gal sneering at them to the 'I don't give a rat's a** ,to heck with them, lets's dance" demeanor of the couple. BEAUTIFUL - denny

oriol from Sant Cugat del Vallès, Catalonia, Spain

Even in the worst moments we can dance and listen to our bodies...

This is a lovely picture, Mariana. I love the foreground full of silhouettes, and the background full of details and with a interesting texture in the walls. It may be seen as a combination of two different photos. Maybe these girls in the background don't like dancing?

22 Aug 2010 9:56pm

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

A cool scene with the dancers and the drinkers all getting all they want. The scene reminds of some energetic latin dance. A very lovely shot.
