Into a pool

Recommended Posts

I like the concept but a little too messy for me, particularly on the right background. Also needs some balance in lighting, my eye keeps getting pulled to the top left of the photo. I do like the way you are playing with different more creative approaches, so I hope you don't mind when I say this one just does not quite work for me.

I completely agree with loftus ... i love what you are doing .. and you have some great shots .. but this one took me a good10

seconds to get my eyes to see what I was looking at.

 

once I saw it I quite liked it though .. A bit more light on the face and an eye would launch that last image to be a great one.

 

But apart from that .. well done very creative and imaginative.

#2 & 4 for me... Nice stuff... I did find the nose bubble amusing :wacko:

The first shot is very cool; great colours. My favorite so far. Looks like a nice mix of strobe and ambient, am I correct?

Very nice; I think one of the coolest parts of doing pool stuff is exploring the reflections.

What lens / EXIF data / one or two strobes?

The lighting on this shot you posted is superb!

 

I especially like the way the strobe reflected off the water onto the swimmer's cheek, chin and throat.

 

Also, the strobe froze everything nicely: No evidence of front or rear curtain sync.

I like the second one. It would be a great backdrop for an ad or something, or just a mural somewhere. The red in the swimsuit with the black and white gives it a great graphic quality

I agree - the blur on the second one is well done. I also like the first but don't like the crop through her eye and would like softer lighting.

 

Cheers
