Uncropped (it was shot with a 200mm prime), and I was afraid to edit out the annoying white specks because i think they're water spots, and therefore part of the picture.

Almost an abstract. Maybe cropped too close. Not a lot here.

The focus wasn't great and there doesn't seem to be a main focal point.

looks like pattern for me, but overall to tight cropping for these object, prefer catch more water splash to give action power from swimmer into water.

Nice repetition and a cool moment, pehaps a slightly faster shutter would have given this a bit moe of a 'frozen moment' feel and a little extra crispness. 6

Great motion! I Love the repeating pattern here...the bodies, the red lines, the splashing. Only nitpick is the first swimmer's head being cut off. Nice job though.

Love how you captured the spray of water so interestingly!

could be just a bit sharper but love the action, angles and flow

Love this. Anytime I see swim pics, I have to comment. Great diagonal line. I wish the red lane markers were parallel with the horizon line though. Nice shot.

Good angle and eye. Clean-up some of the small white spots and it would be much better.

A bit soft on the focus (but whatcha gonna do - probably poor lighting) but I think this shot is also cropped a bit too tight. I feel like I want to see the front swimmers arms going into the water rather than just the splash coming up.
