Spinning

During a private festival in Ogyen Choling, I finally captured an image I had been trying to capture for quite a while. These dancers spin around very quickly, but as with ballet, their heads are usually pointed in one direction to keep them from losing their balance and orientation. The goal was to capture a sharp face, but get the body in motion. I think this is about as good as it can get given the shutter speed that has to be used to capture the motion. I'm very happy with this image, and it brings a smile to my face each time I see it.
