I kid you not squirl. This shot was taken during "warm-up" with the pool full of swimmers. I believe the shutter was open for 6 seconds. Try it out, it's pretty fun.

Tomorrow I will post some new shots of the club's coach standing at the pool's edge looking into an empty pool but in actuality there will be 20 swimmers in the water.:-)

Well, Spy, the second picture is taken at 6s, f/8 and the first at 1/30s, f/2.8 so it is not surprising that the motion is completely blurred. I don't deny that it is an intriguing pair of pictures and I only responded because the trend of the thread seemed to be attributing magic properties to the use of a polariser. I think you would get the same effects by using the same apertures, shutter speeds and a neutral density filter.

I agree, arrow.

I often use the polarizer outdoors with the aim to darken the environment, like when I shot at cascaded which are somewhat brightened and i aim to further decrease light (thus pairing the polarizer with F8 aperture and eventually a tripod) to get 1/8 sec or longer times in order to show the motion of water, as here:

Narmer, stunning picture!

The pictures below are from this morning swim practice. Picture#1 shows 2 coaches teaching 14 swimmers total. Not all are shown in the shot because the pic wasn't wide enough.

Picture #2 is of one of the coaches looking into an empty pool but he is actually watching the 14 swimmers swimming lanes.

If you look to the right side of the coach, you can barely see the second coach walking away.
