Your Photo: Our Critique

Jenna Careen submitted this image taken with a Nikon D50, with an exposure of 1/160sec at f/2, ISO 800. Obviously taken at a performance, Jenna has made good use of the directional stage lights. The dancer leaping through the air makes this shot. As a black and white image, the graininess works but there is some pixelation of the spot that is distracting.

There are also a few random parts creeping into the edge of the frame on the right and left, either crop them out or clone them out in post processing.
