This photo submitted by Anna Jackow has lots of energy. I think the subject of the musicians and dancers is quite nice. I would however prefer to see them shot closer up. Why shoot your subject from so far back? It would be nice to see more of the movements and people's faces. The energy that she captured and the bright colors are interesting. Good choice of a slow shutter speed to capture the movement. The exposure isn't quite right, the sky is too dark and the moon is overexposed. Next time try shooting from the side to avoid shooting straight into the bright moon, or set your exposure to the subject.
