Candle Dance by yori1976 Candle Dance by yori1976
Hanukkah is a Jewish winter holiday of light.

During a communal celebration the "Candle Dance" has on leader on a stage, and everybody else in the darkened room repeats the leader's movements with the candles. This time she brought a few of her grandchildren to assist, and I managed to capture one...

The bright spot at the center looks unnatural, but it is part of the original image, due to a reflection (I can't say what of) - I decided to leave it, even though it is burned out.

Beautiful! Love the contemporary take on a very classical style.

It is a beautiful moment. Her rapt concentration seals it.

I think the highlight is a heart shaped sequin on her belt that just catches the light on that side, and not the other.

Thanks - I actually think its a flower-shaped plastic decoration (see other side), anyway - I left it as is...

You have the advantage of more time and closer zoom (as well as being there!)
Still a lovely image of a child in action.

Thanks!!! I love the minimal background detail...
Courtesy of my excellent toy - the D700. It is possible to capture on film, but the ability to switch ISO and modify exposure according to actual results is a great help...
