I like the shallow DoF and the tight crop. One of the best in the challenge imo.

Boy, this is going to be a close challenge I think. Some great shots and yours should be in the top 10 if not the top 5. Great sharpness, no motion blur. Really good job!

Nice telephoto shot...looks like you were in the next lane it's so clear. I love the look of the water around her head and arm. 9

Great!

This is very hard shooting scenario, but you've done a great job with it. The color of the water and skin is right on, and the lighting is beautiful, and it freezes the motion. Well done!

WOW, I hope this wins. This is a really good shot. 10 all the way

One of my favorite images in this challenge. Everything in it works extremely well -- the motion, the colors, the composition.

Excellent photograph, could've used with a little bit more contrast but the water color is great. Love seeing the eye. 9
