Shot with an Olympus E-1 with a 40-150 zoom.
I love this image and especially dig the fact that it looks 40 years old. I wonder how the composition would look if you cropped the first swimmer on the right (i.e., roughly 10% of the photo).
Thanks for the kind words. And especially on the suggestion about cropping the image. I think you may be onto something there. I think I will go back and re-crop it and see how it looks. Thanks once again.
Interesting colours here. It's a really effective shot... I keep scrolling up to look again :
I agree about the crop too. It seems better just but putting my hand over the swimmer in the right.
nice colors and cool picture. too bad you can only see the heads (except one), would have been nice with some more body silhouettes in it.
Thanks for the comments, Ernie.
I also had someone mention about cropping the guy on the far left, too. I might try both versions of a different crop and see what happens. Thanks for the comments.
Have you condsidered cropping from both left and right? making it look more like a medium format photograph?
I like the subject by the way, and the picture I could see along side surf potographs etc.
Love it. The different postures of the swimmers make the image interesting.
Yes, I posted this on a couple of forums, and people mentioned maybe cropping more from the left and right to make it more of a square format.
I think I will try that and see what happens.
Thanks for the comments.
I had one guy tell me that it looked like aliens taking a dip.
Here is more of a square crop- not exactly square- but close.
What do you guys think?
