Belly Dancer

By

I went to a friend's birthday party yesterday and they hired a belly dancer to perform.  She was great!

now i'm  wondering if I should put Belly Dancer in the tag line?

Randy-

A few years ago I shot a wedding in Vegas at Mandalay Bay, the bride was Egyptian and during the reception they had a belly dancer. Very interesting, and it livened up a reception for a wedding photographer that though he had seen almost everything!

PS- Great use of Photoshop to greyscale the image all except her shawl!

Thanks for the comments (compliments:)

Ranae - all i did was isolate the color in PS which was easy becuase her outfit was black and white for the most part.  After I selected her shawl I inverted my selection and made the rest of the image black and white. Might be hard for you to understand - but its pretty easy to do in PS once you've worked with it for awhile.

@ Bryant - yes, that is traditional at this point, for dancers to appear at Egyptian weddings.  I believe that generally, one of the things they're supposed to do at such an event is dance with a lighted candelabrum on their head!
