The light and shade works well here Nezih. Although the lady on the left is in the light, my gaze is drawn to the lady in the background in semi shade.

Another in a lovely series, Nezih.
Haven't you finished for the summer yet? My son has his final engineering exam today in Bristol.
Best wishes,

Andrew

Thanks, Andrew! This is the last week, and Wednesday will be the end of my teaching in the department. After the finals and the make-ups, I'll ask for my retirement. However, I might continue teaching at the conservatory a couple of hours a week next year.
Regards,
Nezih

Attractive photo but (and I must include a but!) the arm on the right hand side in the light bothers me and it doesn't seem to belong to the person on the right, is it another dancers arm? Presumably it could be removed in Photoshop.
Sorry! - I still like the photo with or without the arm! John

Congratulations on the retirement news Nezih. I retired last year and work one day a week at the local Art centre.I really love it after full-time teaching. I can see another whole career as a full-time photographer opening up for you!

This is a fine portrait giving a good mix of resting energy and the feel of Degas's observations of the dancers' off stage lives. Modern dance in Konya? Good for them!
I went to a performance of 'Sultans of the Dance' in Ephesus theatre a long time ago. It was very professional and a memorable performance, great modern dance and wonderful lighting and effects in the fantastic old theatre and, of course, an appreciative and beautifully behaved local audience.

Best wishes,

David W

Thank you, David! I think it has already taken a great part of my time in response to the interest and encouragement of the pentaxusers. The performance at the university conservatory in Konya was at the same time shared by singers. I am going to upload their photos as well.
Regards,
Nezih

Lovely relaxed pose. I like the composition, especially that she looks out of the picture.
