Cool Image Galleries images

A few nice image galleries images I found:

A color version of this image appears elsewhere in my photostream, and I regard it as perhaps my best dance photo of all time. A 5x7 print of it sits in a frame atop the credenza in my office, and another framed 5x7 print adorns the receptionist's desk at the Chandler Fred Astaire studio. That one is immediately visible to anyone entering the studio, and it has generated some good publicity for that establishment, as well as for the photographer. A week or so ago I dropped by for a brief visit, and a student I barely knew came up to me, pointed to it, and said, "That's an AMAZING picture!"

This morning I posted a link to that photo on my Facebook page, where it generated some very nice comments. A couple of my friends suggested that I do a version in black and white, which at first I was disinclined to do because I just didn't want to tamper with something that was already so close to being perfect. But then I thought, why not? Accordingly, after all of about two minutes of processing in PSE 3.0, here's the black-and-white version for all the world to see. This one will be linked on my Facebook page as well, so we'll see what kind of feedback it generates.

Incidentally, a third framed copy of the color version was given to Miss Gergana, and it now forms part of the decor of the apartment she shares with Mr. Kralev.
