I loved the feet in a classic pose, the colorful socks, and the skirt across the top of the image. However, the front of the stage and the darkness of the stage floor was distracting. So some cropping of the image, lightening of the floor, and increasing the contrast to bring out the shadow on the floor changed the image to this:
I could have gone further and removed the lines delineating sections of the floor, but you have to stop sometime.
