    Very nice shots Randy though you should tell the boy in the first picture that it's all right to get your hair wet when doing the backstroke. :cool:  The 2nd shot takes away from your other very nice work unless it was your intention to show crisp sharp water droplets. The last one you may want to try w/o the kid in the foreground though I am not sure. If the swimmer in the foreground were the one in focus, I would definitely leave the 2nd guy. Just have to try it.
     
  7. From one swimming shooter to another..very nice indeed!

    Good stuff!
    I like #4 and #7 (green cap...swimming..and at the wall) Really good stuff. My daughter was on swim team years ago. That's when I learned what it felt like to be hot (98-100 degrees). I didn't do pics though...just watched and sweated!
