SHOOT! The Spirit of Tango 2014
Canon EOS 6D
Photographer’s Comment:
I love the sensuality created between the dancers highlighted by intense colours of burgundy, ochre and yellow. The panning technique I have used here forms a mirror effect giving the image a dreamy look. Most importantly the signs of the furniture shop frame and backdrop this outdoor milonga, complementing the composition. ‘Createur’ (almost like English ‘creature’) and ‘Mi’o’ (almost like Spanish ‘my’) tell the story of possible tension between the couple, hinting at possessiveness and desire to belong. The dreaminess and the element of tension remind me of some Pre-Raphaelite paintings. The image itself and the happy luck of catching the couple in their communion makes it one of my favourite photographs.
Judges’s Comment:

Very nice use of blur. This image creates the feeling of the city rushing past, and yet it feels peaceful. The colours are balanced. The figures and words still recognisable. We like this image a lot.
