I may post more, in color, later. This woman plays a heroine in a classic Chinese opera tale:

Appreciate the comments, folks. Thanks.

Mitch - I had a local friend help me out by calling several places and asking if they allowed photography. I was told to come on by their rehearsel venue and to take as many shots as I felt like. I promised them some prints.

Nice shots.

I love WA and off center subject placement but both of these might improve with slight crops to the long side. Just a personal preference. Would also eliminate the vignetting shoiwn in #2.
