Tango - created by magicalfruittuts


Tango

Most people associate the image of a dancer with a rose between their teeth with the Tango. In reality Argentine or other tango dancers do not do this.
The idea might have started with Rudolf Valentino in the "Blood and Sand" movie. Or in "Some Like it Hot" with Jack Lemon as Daphne dancing the tango with the millionare. Usually, but not always the lady has the rose in her teeth. Historically the rose is a symbol of passion. (3 years and 364 days ago)

This is SO vintage Pulling back on the saturation might push it more into the "old film" era, but it's fine just the way it is. I was just thinking of the feel of the overall image, and the bright orange/reds are a bit harsh (not that that is a bad thing) it's your creation. I'm almost waiting for film lines and debris to show up.. hehehe.. great image

author says:

Thanks, I made a few changes, mainly de-saturated some and toned things down. Changed the "chatter" to film grain.

This is my opinion of course, but I would like to say that this gives it a much more "vintage" feel. The brightness of the previous image (and the harsh saturation of the red) really punched you in the face. Not a bad thing for a night club or a bar, but now it can go anywhere... IMHO of course

Thanks to WYSIWYG from pxleyes for the pic of the nun.

Thanks to Garry Wilmore from Flickr, for the pic of the tango dancer, and thanks to Dave Proffer also from Flickr, for the pic of the accordion man. (5 years and 1925 days ago)

Shadows would be sharper, judging from the existing shadows. Otherwise it's a good blend. GL author.

author says:

Thanks Bob, I will check the shadows....thanks for tip.

I think that's a nun, she's wearing a habit and not a hood but I'm not that sure fun job

author says:

I think it is nun too, but was not sure, ( name corrected ). Thanks for observation Driven...!

Nice composition - I thought you must have cut out some of the tango girl with your masking - but no, I checked the source, and she really is that thin! Tiny nitpick - the shadows of the legs of the stool look a bit too thick, otherwise great work

author says:

Thanks nicehotcupoftea. Comment appreciated, corrected the shadows underneath the stool.

The accordion man has no shadows on his face which is opposite the light source, so he doesn't blend well. The standing figure in the back also shows no shadows on her face.

author says:

Thanks MossyB.
