Dervish Dream by doriano Dervish Dream by doriano
A concert/performance with a singer and Sufi whirling dervishes (El Sawy, Zamalek)

Here I've used white balance. The robe is white after all.
Although it looks good in golden warmth, too.

It's a tough choice, but for me this is probably the best of the series. Looks like it was an enjoyable concert :)

Thank you, and yes it was!
The first part with the dervishes was the best....
Glad to hear your opinion about this being the best.

So I spent sometimes enjoying them... and I really wish I'd seen that. But I'm sure it would not have been as beautiful as your images !

doriano Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2008
Oh! Merci! I'm not sure, it was more beautiful. In my images you can't hear the singing and the music! :-)

This one is my favorite. I think it is the dark in the background that makes the picture more spiritual. Was this in Egypt or Turkey?

doriano Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2008
Thank you!
It's in Egypt, in Cairo.
And you're right it's probably also my favorite of the series!

Thank you! It would be interesting to know what you see on your screen, they are all differently calibrated I guess.

You are most welcome :)

It looks really good on my screen though it is not properly calibrated. I use Adobe gamma loader for that and my prints are good too...

Your shot is a bit dark but it create this specific atmosphere to suggest movement. This is for me a beautiful one :)

doriano Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2008
Yes I think it's probably also my favorite.
And yes I also use Adobe Gamma because on my laptop there is no possiblity to regulate the brightness etc.
