Top 20 Photos of 2013 - #14


I took up a behind-the-stage stand point for photo #14. Shot in Taman Gelora, Kuantan during a zumba party, instructor Jun Loh leads the masses in a dance routine. In post-photo processing I cropped out unnecessary noise to make the instructor the central focus. I also experimented popping the bright yellow colour of her shirt. Unfortunately, similar colours on other people's clothes and some of the grass and trees also stood out, which prevented the photo from finishing higher up in the Top 20 list. However, I do like the photo a lot. The bright yellow top stands out excellently well against the monochrome background.


  1. I'm tired just looking at this one. Whew!

  2. Hi Duncan ....
    What a cool picture.
    I also like the yellow in tshirt.
    You get to come up with a lot of great pictures to come, as you have so well now.
    I missed from the beginning that it would save the best for last.
    I thought it was one of the 20 that would be selected.
    Have a real nice tisdag.Jag like this will post a picture a day so after this I think I will continue in the same spirit.

  3. This looks a bit more energetic than tai chi

  4. This photo make me want to stand up and do the Zumba. Such is the appeal of this shot. Great one.

  5. Yes, beautiful capture, nice dynamism!

  6. Agreed--it's a very cool pic. Too bad the post-processing didn't allow you to be more selective, but it's still a great shot. And the back-stage perspective really makes it pop.

  7. Hi Duncan,
    Beautiful picture of the group that is doing Zumba.
    I also like the yellow in t-shirt.
