Photographer's Note

Another shot from the finals of the world tango championships - this time the silver medalists in the show tango category (see previous photos for fuller notes on the festival and competition itself).

This was my favourite couple: their choreography really told a story, they worked together beautifully and in this shot, I think I managed to capture the erotic side of tango dancing: I was really pleased with the head positions especially. Just a shame about the plastic chairs in the background: the back part of the stage was set out for a tango band which played later on.

The title comes from one of the most famous tango songs by unarguably the most famous tango singer: Carlos Gardel.

Once again 200mm lens, a long way from the stage, so no flash, high ISO and taking advantage of the stage lighting.
