    There all amazing, but i particulary like the second one. The crops on on 1 and 2 are awesome

    I just went and looking at your smugmug gallery. The whole set is fantastic.

    It looks like you either compressed for web view or really cropped in on them because it says all of them are too small for even a 4x6 purchase?

    Thanks Lynnca- I shot with two cameras and two lenses:
    1) 20D
    2) 5D
    3) Canon 70-200 f/2.8
    4) Sigma 50-500

    Usually wide open to isolate the swimmed with minimal DOF and to increase my shutter speed while maintaining lowest possible ISO.

    Thanks (again) ...
    None of my photos are for sale ... (just easier to avoid being attacked by nuts). I do give the participants and the school a free CD of full sized images.

    Ahhh!
    At long last, there is THIS kind of sports photography showing on TPF for once. Swimming! Cool.

    I haven't taken any photos of anyone swimming for about 3 or even 4 years... before that, I used to TRY and take (good) photos of swimmers fairly often.

    But a 500mm lens..................... well, that has never been for me. Never. So I couldn't get THIS close, ever.

    Thanks LaFoto. Many were shot with the 200 also and most were cropped tight. The Sigma 50-500 is quite affordable.
