Spectacular, emotive. Love it. But must admit to hating such desire in such a young child over something like sport.

I hope this guy won because I know from this shot if he didn't it sure wasn't for lack of trying. Great shot. 8.

get capture of a moment very photo journalistic in nature. well done

Great! You've captured the emotion and anxiety perfectly, especially with the fitting caption.

....and in that moment! Great timing and execution!

The water looks really nice in this as well as the subjects face but the out of focus background threw it off

Nice capture. More of a candid than a portrait, but an honest photograph of the subject doing his thing.
03/22/2008 08:54:27 AM
Very well done.

Not yet, but you might. Great colors and contrast, great facial expression.

The title really helps this. Nice clear portrait that in combination with the title tells a story well.

very good shot, though I had preferred to see him a bit more frontal. excellent focus and DOF, could be a tad brighter.

love this .... hope he won

great expressive face!

Well done. Were there any other swimmers in the pool? This is one of those times when a wider shot might OR might NOT be better. Hard to imagine what others in the frame would add.

it shouldnt matter if you won, as long as you swam your best times, the winning comes with time. Trust me, i swam, and I was fast, but I didnt always win, but I was happy

Great expression captured here. It really matches the caption!
