Your Choice 2009-05

Stanford University

From the start of the two day 38th Annual Powwow held at Stanford (more information at )
Native Americans in extraordinarily colorful dance costumes shared their traditional dance with us today and provided great entertainment.
Right place, right time, right lens, great light, and priceless dancer. This image is one from my Native Dancers Gallery and I love the seeming innocence of the dancer - like they're oblivious that anyone is watching. One I'd print.

other sizes: small medium large original auto

With the great colors and the concentration on the kids face, this is my May fav.
Ed Duverger28-Dec-2009 19:15
Also for the colors

I May have to go with this one simply b/c of the colors. . . .

Real concentration. Is that a mirror showing an upside-down reflection of spectators?

I love it! I really need to get to a powwow. I've always wanted to go to one. My grandfather was full blooded Crow Indian - he jumped the reservation at the age of 11.

Excellent image. So cute! The colors are wonderful, and clarity is great!

Excellent image, In this high contrast scene the wide latitude of the D3 comes through. And the long lens gives such great separation from the background. Good choices, good camera, good job.

This is beautiful, wonderful colour, total concentration by the dancer. The light for this is perfect.

Bright and colorful. I like the movement and the detail in the head dress. Great capture, Mark.

(It was shot in portrait - this is how I chose to crop it.)
DB Hans10-May-2009 05:32
A nice colorful image, great costume. Interesting that you chose to shoot this in landscape as opposed to portrait.
Paulette10-May-2009 05:28
You've captured this perfectly. What a beautiful costume.
