Meera Solanki and Sravani Sagireddy hold their final pose during Diwali Night at Hutchins Street Square on Oct. 27. (Camera: Nikon D700. Lens: Nikkor 70-200mm @ 102mm. Exposure: 1/250th sec. @ f/2.8. ISO: 4000)

Photographer’s note: This was the second annual Diwali Night I had photographed. This year’s event started with a performance by little children. Following the children, the emcees came out and made a few jokes. Two younger girls then came onto stage to perform a Bharatnatyam dance. I took a couple pictures during their dance and snapped one of their final pose. I jotted down some information from the program before I hurried back to the office to make deadline, not sure if my final picture was up to par yet. Back at the office, I quickly edited my pictures from earlier in the day, saving the dance for last. When I got to it, I knew that it would make the page editors happy. I submitted it and went home, eager to see if it made it into print the next day.
