Salford Quays Age Group Trialthon Swim. Taken from the bridge over the quay.

The hat is a little overexposed, but in basic editing I can't do much with that for now.

PS Work:

Boost yellow and green chanels saturation
Adjust the colour levels for blue (darken), red (for skin colour)
Smart sharpen twice
Adjust levels
Play around with curves on the colour channels to get the best out of the yellows and grreens in the water.

I love the motion blur in this - and the vertical orientation makes a common subject into something memorable. well done.

The long exposure totally works for this picture. Wonderful creative shot.

Great POV. The blurred movement of the face bothers me, but it works really well on the water. I guess you can't have it both ways!) Nice shot. 7

Just too much blur for me to score this one high. A viewer should have something to focus on and I just can't find that something that catches my attention.
