Great action shot. Love the expression of person in top left corner who seems to have got a faceful of water!!! The main two characters are nice and sharp and the ball is on the lower third.
The water looks very blue and is probably due to the bright sunshine you say there was. In PS I dropped the cyan down a little and raised the shadows on their faces and thought it looked a bit better?   Posted: 07/02/2021 10:26:07

Noël, sharp and great story. Love the water framing of the eye in the front swimmer. Intense. I do not know why the person is in the shot in upper left and I would crop that swimmer out of the shot, and really get into the front action. It should easily hold up to that tight of a crop. Colors handled well too, and a successful story and shot.   Posted: 07/08/2021 07:47:12

Great action shot of this match. I like the expressions on their faces. I like the bright colors…it says summer to me!   Posted: 07/09/2021 19:59:56

Well done. I prefer the brighter faces, but otherwise a great action image.   Posted: 07/29/2021 10:47:10
