Very arty Kevin. What sort of PP are you doing to get these effects?

Glad you like them Matt and Mark.

I use techniques in cs3.

One way of enhancing color I like to use is Image>Mode>Lab Color then Image>Adjustments>Curves then adjusting color through tweeking both "a" and "b" channels. I will then use some slight contrast and adjust "white" and "black" levels via Image>Adjustments>Levels and depending on what I'm going after, I'll add noise to create the effect I'm wanting.

i know really nothing of, nor watch much swimming. even with that, i am really enjoying your swim shots.

#3 is a personal favorite here. i would almost like to see a b&w presentation of this photo, not sure if it would work, but just something that popped in my head when i saw it.

Hards80, as long as people like my work, I'll keep posting. Thank you for commenting.

I thought I'd redo that shot for you in b/w. It sure adds a different tone to it for sure.
