  2. Man, those shots are awesome! Tack sharp. Great detail. And perfect timing to capture the facial expressions. Great work. I'm on a work computer, so I can't check the EXIF. What shutter speeds and ISO were you shooting at?

    #1 is perfect...
    I like #7 and #8, the detail in the water droplets.
    Outstanding...or in your case, ...the usual.

  13. Mike, as always some great stuff. As for Beijing, i bet it would be very interesting shooting in their swim facility. Have you seen it yet? You should take a look at Mark Rebilias' stuff Mark's work.. He's got some great stuff from there.
