      Hi Marcie,

      My very first impression was that the framed poster is distracting, especially since your subject's hand intersects it. I haven't changed my mind about that thought but I did have a thought on incorporating that framed poster in a manner that wouldn't seem disruptive.

      My thought is that you could use the dancer as a foreground framing object. You would have to move to your left and select a higher vantage point. If you could have placed the poster above her arm and just to the right of her head with a shallow dof that rendered the dancer softly but still identifiable with the poster in fairly sharp relief it might have worked to tell a story of aspiration. In this scenario I see a crop that the bottom of the frame is somewhat below her outstretched arm. Further considertion suggests that you could reverse the focal point and have your dancer in sharp relief as long as the oof poster was still readable.

      I'd also opine that I think your dancer pictures would fare quite well in B&W. Color isn't your objective here (IMO) and removing that would help focus on form and story.

      I realize that the thoughts above don't offer suggestions for improving this shot but perhaps they'll spark an idea for a future image.

      Marcie,

      Darren is on the right track in his assessment. I think it would be better if her hand wasn't covering the poster. I also think this would be stronger in B&W.

      Idea for another shot, would be to shoot her at the barre doing some stretching.

      Marcie,
      I don't know anything about dance, but your model has a lovely, graceful look. Her downward glance gives this image a pensive, thoughtful mood. I also like the soft cool shades of the background that accentuate her fair coloring.

      Marcie,
      I have another suggestion. To avoid her hand in front of the poster you could have had her lean slightly to the left with her right foot pointed out to the side in "tondu." That is a dancer's point of view. :-) She would have to move a little to the left. I like your composition and your granddaughter always looks graceful.
