Swimming
« on: July 15, 2012, 12:20:27 PM »
Hi there. Seems that there isn't a general thread for swimming yet, so I thought, I'll open one.

Recently I took some pictures at a swimming-event not far from where I live, using my 550D and the 24-70 and 70-200 2.8 II most of the time. Here are two of them, I would welcome any comments about them or about the full set at http://www.flickr.com/photos/80270150@N06/sets/72157630346283722/with/7456405328/ .

After this event, I got my 5DIII, and of course I had to try it out, all shots with the 70-200 - and I was really amazed by the number of keepers, more than 73% as compared to around 40% with the 550D. Unfortunately, this time it was not possible to get to the start-area, so no close-ups and no shots from the front  :(

The full set is here http://www.flickr.com/photos/80270150@N06/sets/72157630448907988/with/7514453640/ , and two samples from it:

The only post-processing I did, was to use the lens-profile in Lightroom and of course do some cropping.

Not that much interest for swimming?  :)

In that case, I'll chip in with a few recent ones.
