The Gamelan dewa, Ubud, Bali

Nikon D200 ISO 400 1/13s f/4.5 c. 2007
The short musical told of a dewa or a demi-god who discovered the gamelan. The Balinese mime involved a lot of eye work, to convey the element of surprise. I did my best to capture that depiction of surprise although it was not bright enough, so that his eyes were blur at the edges. It would have made a wonderful shot had I been able to shoot faster with better lighting.
