There is a lot of energy in this image, Suzy -- created by the explosion of light coming from behind the woman. The point of her mask echoes the point of the man's mask, and the negative space between the two points crackles with energy. You also abstract both subjects by shooting into the light source. You go beyond the descriptive level here to express what it felt like to be at this ball.
