These were taken at Saturday's practice.

ISO 3200, approx 1/500, 70 - 200 2.8 non IS. Surfacing from a backstroke flip turn. The swimmer is to learnto exhale before surfacing. It is not as easy as it looks.

Love number 3, you have managed to get the face sharp while everything else is blurred, great work.

I like number 1 and have been trying to work out if there was a way of making it sharper but I guess shooting through water it is hard..... have you thought about seeing what happens if you play around with a polarising filter (might look good, might not, might not do anything)?

Number 2 is also cool although at first I did not think so but the more I have looked at it the more I like it.... it is very arty!!!

#1 is difficult to get everything sharp as to do so would require closing up the apperture a lot thus slowing the shutter down to much and of course with this shot at 2.8 only focuses several inches around what it locked on.

What sticks out the most for me in #2 is the tone and richness of the different colors and then as you said for # 3 is that the head is sharp and the rest shows motion. These types of pics are tricky but they are fun.

I agree, I love slow shutter work as most people can't do it well so it is a good skill to have.
