Very impressive series. Big vote
A very impressive gallery! thanks.
Enjoy your great portraits very much
Very expressive gallery! I think colour pictures are more pertinent here..
No one does this work better, Chris. You've really made it your own. I like the way your images in the dance galleries are quite formal, rigid even, but have that clarity and totally unpretentious. They are simply elegant.
Very enjoyable gallery, I like a lot the mix between b/w and colored images, this let the colored one really pop, the second one I love is the dramatic and movement you are able to show, congratulation and a big vote, I admire your art, Rosemarie :o)
Have a wonderful and prosperous New Year !

One I took from my portrait was Ralitsa. She's a Bulgarian exchange student doing part time work in the office.
Merry Christmas my good buddy...
Magnificent gallery! I love the movement, energy and excitement you've captured.
Solid work, Chris, well presented as a gallery, definitely more in ensemble, that as singular pictures. Very quality and stylish (sorry I repeated myself, but Style what is giving the strongest impression to me).
Excellent low light work.., Congrats
A very impressive galery Chris, a big V!
Fantastic work with great quality. V
You exhibit the essence of the dance beautifully on these series in a beautiful manner and did outstanding work remarking the great concentration of the dancers. Bravo you all!
This is a brilliant gallery. I also like the clever insertion of a few color images here and there in between the rest of the black-and-white pictures. V.
I love the theatrical here. The harshness of light and use of b&w with those spurts of color make it so dramatic. V
It is our favourite dance gallery!! V
Absolutely magnificent my friend. How they hell do you do this?
Superb use of directional lighting--these dancers just jump out at you. Voted
Well, I can't vote second time :-) But I would. Unexpected part two makes me do it again. The choice of B&W is perfect, the light is almost architectural creating wonderful emotions.
A wonderful gallery of extraordinary beauty,
inspiration and originality ! Excellent !
the lighting and form of the subjects are amazing. very pleasurable to view them. well done
A Visual feast!
What makes this gallery one of the most expressive viewing experiences on pbase, Chris, is its cumulative effect. Each image is evocative and emotional in its own way, but when we look at the thumbnails as a display in itself, or when we view it as a slide show, it is evident that the greatest strength of this presentation lies in its editing and display: its sequencing, pace, variety, and contrasts. It is the relationship of frame to frame, and sequence to sequence, that evokes the nature of dance itself -- symbolic movement. You give us a series of symbolic expressions, gestures, and body language, draped in costume and powerfully abstracting relationships of light and shadow, that make us hear music where there is none, and complete the movements you imply in our own imaginations. Dance photography must be more than dancers and poses. It must evoke the essence of the art, which is the expression of meaning by physical movement. And that is what you do here, Chris -- cumulatively and brilliantly.
Tremendous gallery. Shooting people on stage is extremely difficul (at least it was for me) and you did an amazing work here.
Excellent gallery with powerful captures!! ( V ) Anna

Kudos to you, Chris, for a gallery that captures the motion and emotion of the dance in dynamic compositions.

Bravo ... vos images sont très belles car elles montrent, en plus de la grâce du corps et de la gestuelle, quasiment à chaque fois des visages chargés d'expressions aussi fortes..., la qualité des images est présente même dans les mouvements : Bra"V"o aussi à l'équipe de dance !

Christine P. Newman
Chris, this is one of the finest PBase galleries I have ever seen. Your use of occasional color only makes the black and white more dramatic. When I look at this as a slideshow, I see them dance across my screen. Their intensity and single-minded focus comes through so well. And your compositions are unique. Bravo!!!
Great work. Very good use of the color photos mixed in with the black and white.
You are the best dance photographer !!
Very impressive, progressive and skillful gallery Chris, also a beautiful presentation.. ~Voted~
