    This is true Zulu performing a traditional war dance.
    They are designed to stir up the warriors before battle and intimidate the enemy,and believe me,when you see these guys up close it works.
    Shot at 500mm,f/6.3,1/500thsec,ISO200.

    Without the explanation I would have thought something entirely different.

    not that the shot is bad, but it doesn't instill fear or convey attitude or even aggression.

    technically the shot is fine, but the pose that you caught the warrior in isn't flattering to the end of a war dance.

    I like this picture very much for several reasons.
    The technical aspects are terrific, great focus and color on the main subject and good composition. The expression-filled face in one corner and the OOF person in the back obviously responding to him are in terrific balance.
    I would have preferred a little more of the male dancer; if you had caught his neck and shoulders in the shot it would have been an award-winner.
