    Stupid or lucky - I didn't even miss the feet! The background lines and the foreground legs are all I care for... and their arms positions are so cool. Especially that the dark haired girls' shoulders differ gives a special touch to it all.

    A simple case of more good than bad. I knew I would be torn apart over the feet, however I loved the lines of the dancers with the vertical lines of the background combined with the bright outfit and mysterious mask.
A big thanks to all who saw past the obvious and threw a vote my way!
( as always a big thanks to all who participate here at panachallenge! )

    Nice shot, but I don't like cut feet.

    Perfect for the theme and the parallelism is amazing.
Perfect moment that you caught there.

    Chainsawed the feet...... Some distractions in the background

    I like the composition a lot - but the upper body skin color looks wrong to me (I presume the figures must be wearing yellow-colored leg tights, but if not - then the coloring is even more wrong!). Also, the background is a bit of a distraction. I would not mind so much if the figures and colors stayed the same -- if it wasn't for that keyboard in the background! In this case, I think it would pay dividends to process this image further; perhaps mask the images and put a black (or complimentary colored) layer behind them - or a least clone the electric piano out; but then again, that's a lot of work. In spite of my criticisms, I still think the is one of the better images.

    I like foot loose better than footless. Almost as fatal a flaw as a chopped head, telephone pole growing out the ... well, you know.
But the framing is otherwise dead on, the look, unique, background nicely muted and the keyboard, well, a personal choice but I'd have cloned it out entirely. Besides, I'm not wild about that mic-stand almost hitting her crotch. But you still made my top 3. With no piano and some feet -maybe even without the feet), it would have probably been my number 1.
