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:

Nice Shots as usual Mike.

As the others have said, #1 just left me amazed, that shot is incredible and the colors are gorgeous!

Thanks as always thanks for taking the time to look and comment. This one just jumped out at me, this girl has the most beautiful stroke which makes the picture. I printed this one 11X14 and it looks great

Thanks so much, the first one is a special one I was so pleased when going through Nikon View and this popped up

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:
