What a remarkable shot in terms of composition, considering the dynamism of the model. The minimal colours fit the mood perfectly, the clarity is exceptional, and the viewer is honoured with to be allowed to see the magnificent physique you've so expertly captured here. I love it!

But, despite the fearsome expression, I can't help but giggle when I look at this, as I think of the making of the shot: photographer and model must have had such a damn good time doing this.

Best regards,
Olga

Thank you Olga. It was a lot of fun and we were having us some good laughs in the process of getting these intense shots. Dale was flying over my head for many of them - thank goodness he didn't land on me!

ragingly primal is right; fierce and frightening; I would hate to be on his bad side

Something as ragingly primal and at the same time as utterly human as this could only have been yours. Your work always stands out in any group, and I've missed checking for it. Thanks.

Hey, nice to see you. And thanks for the generous praise! It was pretty amazing working with Dale - he has exceptional physical presence and strength. And as a pro dancer he sure knows how to use his body. All I had to do was sit on the ground and make sure I was ready to snap! Tons of fun.

The expression of emotions not only becomes readable in our facial expressions, but also the entire being in it's human form of skeleton and muscle mass demands attention. Life is beautiful in that way, and I am blessed to see it captured in action here.

Thank you. Dale was completely into his character and the extraordinary jumping and flying he was doing. In several of the shots he flew right over my head. It was wild lying there on the ground watching all of that going on over the top of me. :-)

I have to agree with Zhaanman, Tom. Or perhaps Dale is doing a storm dance.

I feel like the storm clouds that were rolling in over the mountains set the stage for this warrior like feeling that we were creating. Storm Dance would be a very fitting title for this piece.

Most Impressive Tom Wow talk about a dramatically Fierce look! The very tension of his muscular build shows this wasn't just him hoping up for shot!! This is a full all out balls to the wall (no pun intended) attacking leap!!!:wow:

Thanks! And he wasn't just hopping for sure - he had been flying through the air and was about to land. If you could see the bottom of the picture better you'd see that his foot isn't on the ground! Dale is a force of nature - a professional dancer who brings extraordinary physical skills to our work together. Amazing guy.
