    I wanted to share a few pictures I shot at the Peace Corps 50th Anniversary Celebration in Lesotho. Part of the event consisted of traditional Basotho dances. Here are a few shots, captured with an E-P1 in RAW, and converted to B&W in ACR.

    Reminds me of Swaziland. I agree with Jim, this photos should shine in color.
     
  4. Great images, nice work. As has been said, if you have a couple more in colour I'd love to see them as well.

    Hey guys, thanks for the compliments! Here are a few more from a different dance that are in color. I tried edits of the original pictures in both color and B&W, and found converting to B&W added a bit to the movement and drama of the shots. The color seemed almost distracting to me. If I get some time, I'll edit a few in color and let you guys be the judge. Critique is always welcome :)
