no housing, most olympics sized pools have viewing windows build into the side. Shot this through the glass.

Well I was going to remove all the colour apart from the swimmers eyes, blur everything and give it a sepia overlay, but I figured that would be pushing the current "wedding photo" trend to much.

What strokes do you swim, if you don't mind me asking?
Reply
:iconrianokami:
RianOkami Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2011
I don't really compete anymore, but I was quite the freestyle sprinter, and was pretty good at short distance butterfly. Okayish in backstroke, and god awful in breaststroke.

But don't compete anymore.... my community college doesn't have a team, and I'm quite out of practice to be with the University team.

What do you swim?

CrystalRedRoses Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
I'm still a competitive swimmer but I'm long distance, 200's to 500's freestyle and 100 Back. I can butterfly but not for long and breaststroke.. oh god I look like a drowning frog.

:iconrianokami:
RianOkami Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2011
I'm right with you on breaststroke. I've had to do a couple 200's and 500's in my day..... not fun. But hey, they sure made me appreciate my sprinting. ^ ^

:iconcrystalredroses:
CrystalRedRoses Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
haha yep, it takes a special swimmer to do those 500's, 200's I find relaxing but 500's... thats just an excessive amount of laps :D I would sprint but I'm not fast enough ^^

is it strange that the part I love from this picture most are the folded hands? They seem so peaceful in this whole action. As if they're praying. I love it
