One of my favorites which I don't think I could capture again. My daughter breaking out for her butterfly leg of her 200 meter IM.

Excellent! She looks like she has dinosaur spines!

I've been itching to get out with my fairly new 100-400II and 7DII and shooting Special Olympics swimming in two weeks. I've been searching for some tips, not very familiar with pool shots (my son was a hockey-boy). Thanks for sharing your settings.

As for the preset, it looks like a lot of contrast, clarity and dehaze were used. Excellent results. Cudos.

I was at a long course meet this weekend and decided to play around with slower shutter speeds. Here are a few from the event.

Hey everyone.. Was at my sons swim meet last week and since he is only 6 years old, the shots of him are only special to us..ha!
But while I was waiting I did a couple practice shots.
Enjoy!

His breast stroke looks pretty good. That's my daughter's worst stroke.

I've played around with slower shutter speeds as well, works sometimes. I was trying for a sense of motion, but that can come across with fast shutter speeds as well (like the last one)
