Finally like my Series of an inward 11/2!
I haven't edited or anything to these yet but I really wanted a nice series of my daughter's inward 11/2. I like how these turned out.
Happy I have her facial expression here!

This would be a great sequence to layer so you have a single picture with her going through the sequence. I tried a quick one and it doesn't line up right.

Glad you got what you're after. I might suggest taking a few more sequences. The tucks look good but the last 2 shots are early/late - it's very difficult to get that timed so it can take a few executions - but you want to try and get a shot at entry if you can. Also, when you do process the photos - straiten the last 2 as they're a tad crooked.

some other suggestions for next time:
Shoot at a lower ISO - you don't need 1/8000 shutter speeds so no need to use 1600
Check the background if you had shot the other way - that slide is a very distracting background - would the background have looked better if you had stood over there and shot the other way?

I actually have about 5 more in the series but didn't post them all here.
Back grounds will always be a problem or at least I have decided that. This was the best place to be when dealing with the sun.
Totally agree on the shutter speed....not sure how that happened....
This has been a long long learning curve and I am still learning! But hopefully I am headed in the right direction! Now of course indoor diving season starts....that has a whole new set of issues!
