Leon Neal's photographs from the 'Emerging Dancer 2013' competition final in London are ones that long exposure appreciators will especially enjoy.

Creating art through the audience's perspective, Neal not only captures moments of the powerful performances that he witnessed, but also portrays them in a serene and painting-like manner.

Capturing moments in real-time and working with them through unique angles is an admirable skill and artistry, which many photographers excel at doing. However, just like being crafty with a paint brush, being skillful with operating a camera and creating one's own interpretation of a particular moment serves to showcase an artist's identity and style.
