Camera:
Canon 60D
Photographer’s Comment:
The Black contrast, he is like emerging from the background as a part of it. the clear position of the Hands, how he looks. Two great dancers! Elkin Guerra and Claudia Acquistapace
Judges’s Comment:
The image has an unusual quality of stillness, a very nice use of the blackout or black backdrop technique, as the dancers emerge from the inky canvas into the light like creatures from another world. The photographer has captured a moment of poignant, unchecked and uncomplicated emotion here that compels the observer to feel respect for the dancers’ intimacy. Neither can we dispute the composition which, from every angle, allows the eye to glide easily from one detail to the next in circular. These three elements in combination made us return to this image again and again. A beautiful portrayal of tango.
