Hi Spy you know I love slow shutter work and these are fantastic, I really like 2 and 3 as you can see the subject and also have the feel of power and movement. Number 1 does not work quite as well as it is more difficult to see what is happening, however as an abstract it still works nicely.

Have a great Christmas!

These are very nice. I really like the effect created by the slow shutter speed. I especially like numbers 2 & 3.

Awesome pics! I've gotta find an indoor pool and try this out. Care to share any tips on how to achieve this effect?

Sure I will labrat99, I usually shoot ISO's at 3200 to achieve as fast a shutter as posible however when I want my pictures to depict motion as in these ones, I turned the ISO's down to 200 - 400 for a shutter speed of 1/25, 40 and 60 and panned the swimmer.

Glad you liked em.

You are the MAN! I love seeing what youre going to post next. Are you using a monopod to pan at that slow of a shutter speed?

Thanks DRGSin, no, I do use a monopod. Just freehand panning is all.The slow shutter shots seem to be a hit. I'll work on some more.
