22nd Annual Palo Alto Weekly Photo Contest
Second Place, Bay Area Images - Adult
By Peche Tuner
Second-place winner Peche Turner's image "Bliss Dance" is also a strong composition. I like how the off-center placement of the dancer gives her room to cavort. Notice, too, how the form of the dancer is isolated against the night sky and how only the body of the dancer is rendered in vibrant color (all the other color is muted). These simplifications enhance the power of the image.
