Stage silhouettes

I was at my daughter’s dance recital this morning.  She had a lot of fun during her performance and we had even more watching her.  We were able to enjoy a number of enjoyable performances.  The image above, taken just before the stage lights came on, reminded me why I like photographing so many events with a 70-200mm zoom lens.  I saw the dancers getting into position and dialled in the exposure to create silhouettes.  The image below was the first shot where I wanted to catch the moment before the dance started.  Above, with the overall scene photographed, I tried to work into it and find a more compelling composition.  Within the frame as David duChemin and others have discussed eloquently on occasion.
