    I have to agree with Frank.. I have to give taking pictures at a swim meet a try... Nice work.
     
  3. Hey Mike,

    They are all super once again, but #1 really does it for me, with all that "slick" water on the body, the reflection in the gogles, and the intense effort on that young lady's face. Thanks for sharing those: they are always appreciated! :lol:

    Have to agree - # 1
     
  5. Mike, these are just incredible! You always amaze me how you make your photos so life like, rather than photographs.

    Very interesting so what strokes and distances did you swim. I swam competilty till I was 20.... 7-18 at the local pool and the YMCA/Vespers in the winter and then for two years in college. I swam the IM Butterfly and Freestyle.

    Mainly freestyle,breast srtoke,a trainer from the navy who didn't stop shouting if you hadn't a "canal'to turn you nose in for air during the swim

    Don't remind the distances but it was long stopped when the girls were getting serious :wink: :wink:
