Hey Spy!

Love #3 - really great shot there. 2 is a nice fly!

The only one I dont care for is the last - the blown out windows are too much of a distraction.

But yep 3 is a real keeper.

Wow, 3 is a great capture and works wonderfully well in in b/w. I like the first shot as well as for the lighting.

As you have only given us one swimming shot I'm pleased to say it's a good capture, I've yet to try swimming but possibly one day.

Thanks guys! The b/w one is my favorite as it shows a different emotion I haven't captured yet.

As you can see, the bank of windows along this wall create the need to meter the shot before taking it. I was starting off by metering a dark spot of water in the middle of the pool and locking it on there then with center focus, locking the area just in front of the starting block where the swimmer has just dove off. After awhile of always having to meter the shot I just set the mode to TV and that took care of all that extra work.
