On a recent cruise we visited Croatia where, in Dubrovnik, we were treated to some folk music and dances. Beautifully costumed dancers giving spirited performances -- beginning in a circle.

And their skirts forming perfect circles.

Absolutely loved the second shot. It conveyed the motion of the dancers much more effectively that the first and obviously also met our challenge.

Reminded me very much of a similar shot I took quite some time ago in San Antonio.

I like #2
For me it's the phantasy you need to "see" the circles that the skirts make if you'd look from a birds view PLUS the circle the girls form itself.

It's not that you can see these circles on the first view ... but they ARE there.

The music, dancing and bright costumes transformed that dank old building (formerly a war-time hospital ward) into an atmosphere of joy and celebration of their rich heritage. One of the highlights of our cruise.
