Moroccon tribal dance, an interesting subject to tackle but with low lighting and no flash it took me quite a few attempts! Bit brutal to get the focus right so to speak when the dancers were moving around so much but I did manage to get some of the feeling between the constant motion and the dim lighting. Slow enough shutter just to get the suggestion of movements, was what I was after.
Another image, scanned to Tif from the world of film photography, I love the feel of the less than sharp edges, adjusted the contrast a wee bit and superficially dust spot -not too much- as I want to retain the authenticity. The image is framed in the camera at the time of taking and no cropping whatsoever takes place.
There's nothing to brag about, hope you are not suffering motion sickness though....

Notwithstanding with this type lens and a very quick shutter time, would you have to make a very sharp picture.
Pleasant depth and perspective picture with custom colours.
Very well presentation.
Nice done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

J'aime beaucoup cette longue exposition. Le flou chez les participants à la fête est remarquable et préserve bien leur intimité.Une très belle gestion du mouvement.

Thank you for not using a flash here ;-). You have definitely captured the exotic atmosphere better through this exposure and the deliberate slight blur. The colours are very well maintained in the scanning process.

A moody photo with a lot of dynamic movements, it is good that you didn't use the flash, you achived an effect of a magical atmosphere

we may not get a clear impression of the dance movements but this feels like a glimpse into a mysterious, mystical world. The effect of the exposure shows the group as a compact body synchronized to the rythm. The glow given by the flash against a black backdrop has created a dramatic atmosphere but there's still naturalness in the colours. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,

I like the effect of the slow speed making the image somewhat eerie and mysterious. You did a wonderful in spite of all the obstacles and produced a very interesting photo. Love the colors. Well done, tfs.

I love this long exposure. Blur among participants in the festival is remarkable and well preserved their beautiful atmosphere.

Good idea with a slow shutter speed which creates some halo around the dancing men, giving the impression of mouvement!
my best regards

Hi dear Abmdsudi YTH
Wow so eye-catching and appealing image at all!
Slow shutter (maybe 1/10 or more slow) makes so fantatsic blurring, that causes the dynamism and very moody atmosphere. Great shot!
PS. Thank you for your comment to my posting every time, in English is better to undesrtand your intention, many thanks!
All the best and have a good day! Takero

Hello Abmdsudi! Amazing shot. Fantastic dancers. Marvelous effect. Magical atmosphere. Good cut and frame. Interesting info. Regards!

Excellent attempt by you taking such a type of image. Moving subjects are alwasy difficult to catch. You manage here very well. Infacto with this image we can feel to be there in the middle of the dance. The smoke is adding feeling of the atmosphere. The right side tourist is a bit disturbing.
Overall a very good picture.

Beautiful blur! Another great shot from the film era and a dynamic one too. No motion sickness here - it's a pleasure to look at.

J'aime l'effet flouté qui fait ressortir les mouvements, belle nocturne et ambiance bien rendue
adramad (49512) 2015-08-08 10:11
A curious picture in which we can get a sense of rhythm by movements of the figures and the soft blur, typical of figures in motion.
Very well done.
Have a good weekend.
mcmtanyel (29016) 2015-08-11 21:52
This is a captivating image. I love the motion blur and the colors. Is that dust or smoke I see in the right? Good scan job, congratulations & TFS!

Bonsoir, cher Abmdsudi,
Bel effet de mouvement et de rendre compte de ce moment si particulier.
J'aime quand l'on prend des risques.
La réussite est bien là.
