Looks like a fine & fun event. Great captures of the expressions and action! You had some very difficult lighting to deal with, but handled it well. Maybe a bit too bright backgrounds on the B&W, but maybe that's just my taste...

Looks like a lot of fun going on, Hector.
Now, I'm curios as to why the guy dancing looks so much like your avatar?

@Mole Yes the lighting was really hard to work with. I did the blow out with the b&w just for the dramatic effect.. maybe too much?

@Sarah - Thank you so much for your comments, means a lot!

@GW - It might be the hair? LOL, but in reality the picture in set as my Avatar is me...so I don't know why we look a like...

Looks like great fun and an excellent subject !

Focus was a bit out on some and maybe using a much shorter DoF would have given you a better background since everything would then have been OOF. Definitely some blown highlights there too.
