Default swim meet racing

I haven't posted here in awhile so I looked through some of our swim club's swim meets to see what I could post. These were from some of the best swim meets of the year.

20d, 70-200 2.8, ISO 1600

Great shots, Kevin. Numbers three and four for expression and all for color and composition!

Kevin,

I've never seen anything like it. Fantastic swimming photos. Outstanding. The reflection in the water and the "glasses?". Unbelievable. What if one saw pictures like that in a news sport appendix

Great to see you posting some swimming shots, it's been a long time and you have done yourself proud with these. I can't choose a fave, it is between 1, 3 and 4.

Sweet!!!

Torgny, I'm glad you like these. I do hope that one day someone from a sports magazine would see some of these from not only me but from others who post here and offer them a full time job. There are a lot a very talented photographers here on this site that post their photos and many of them are worthy the invite to shoot for major contracts.

Thanks Mark for putting the 'bug' in my ear. Stay tuned for more!
