stuart: ha, ha and ha!<P>when that zolle photo goes up - pending his permission, of course - can you close this thread, and we'll start a new one with the candidates to follow? <P>so people can 'vote' on just those ones, without having to load a thread that is slower than absolutely necessary....?<P>BTW, no-one has reported any problems with this, but i think it well may be happening, so: please speak up if that's YOU!?

It's interesting how this thread got a little quiet after Michael M went on a trip...

A slight change in plans... we have put up Pascal's beautiful photo of a flying Nicholas Le Riche.<P>We will put up the photo of Daniel Goldin in about a month's time after we get permission from Zolle.<P>Enjoy!

Just got back!<P>I think its great guys.<BR>We approve.<P>I find it a bit confusing though that when you click on the picture you go to the welsh ballet site??? (ps. there's no "H" in Nicolas)

How about Diana Vishneva (in a tastefully low~~comparatively~~attitude derriere)?<BR> <A HREF="http://www.kirov.com/photos/kba/k33.jpg" TARGET=_blank>http://www.kirov.com/photos/kba/k33.jpg</A> <P>Photo by Natasha Razina.<P>You would have to get permission from the Kirov Ballet, of course. Good luck with that. Do they have telephones in Russia Image?<P>------------------<BR>~Intuviel~

You should meet some of the Russians I know - they're out-Americaning the Americans!<p>[This message has been edited by Michael Montgomery (edited May 25, 2000).]

Done! I made the corrections to the front page.

Post subject:  Re: Front page photo

THAT's low?<P>well i know what you mean, Intuviel and it's pretty, and so is she...but i was hoping it was, you know, barely off the floor...those overhead extremes we've got used to seeing sort of beg for some extremes to appreciate at the OTHER end of the scale...(PLUS i can DO THEM!!! Image )<P>just to clarify, the current plan is to put up zolle's photograph when stuart gets permission. the other CD member 'approved' photo is marie claude pietragalla (in colour), which is also to go up when stuart has had some double tour coaching from the lady...(unless i've misunderstood)... Image -that may be before or after zolle's photo, whichever permission is obtained first.<P>then we will be looking for a new one after THAT - which will probably be for the start of july, i would say. probably the consensus would be that it's time for a different dance genre - OTHER than ballet or contemporary dance...<P>there are so many fabulous dance shots, if it wasn't for the rigamarole of getting the permissions, i'd be changing the photo every day! have fun searching!!

Grace, you should see where Vishneva's leg usually is...<P>If you want to see extreme...look at THIS!<BR> <A HREF="http://www.kirov.com/photos/kba/k31.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.kirov.com/photos/kba/k31.html</A> <P>------------------<BR>~Intuviel~<BR><A HREF="http://www.freetown.com/Uptown/HaightAshbury/1055/ballet.html" TARGET=_blank>Balletica</A><BR><p>[This message has been edited by Intuviel (edited June 01, 2000).]

thanks intuviel - i'd put your pic of andrei batalov on the board for the edification of others, but mid-air splits that go past the horizontal aren't aesthetically pleasing to me! Image

Just to make things easy on ourselves, we will be changing the front page photo about the first week of each month. We do have permission from Zolle, so his photo we'll go up in a few days!

Post subject:  Re: Front page photo

that's excellent news, azlan. both the permission to use that superb photo, and the plan to have a plan!<P>it's been getting a bit confusing lately, with all these good photo ideas floating around...(probably largely MY fault!). Image<P>so, just to clarify, i am in favour that we stick with doing zolles photo now/next/as soon as you do it - THEN marie-claude pietragalla's (seated/kneeling) colour photo for july. <P>so maybe in july we can re-activate the voting thread, for what should come AFTER that, for the month of august?<P>could you therefore delete the homepage Hot Topics reference to the photo thread at THIS point in time, please? thanks!

Post subject:  Re: Front page photo

a new thread will be begun in due course to select the front page photo for august. in the meantime, have you noticed that zolle's is up? thanks azlan! it looks great. Image<P>check it out! <A HREF="http://www.criticaldance.com/" TARGET=_blank>http://www.criticaldance.com/</A>
