This is so much fun, Laurie! I just love it! Great perspective and great use of what I assume to be your wide-angle! Hope we see this one again! :-)

Great perspective Laurie!
The swimmer looks really small compared to the rails in the pool.
Good job with this and good luck.

Is it taken with a fish-eye-lense or manipulated in PS? Great twist and perspective anyway! Congratulations!

Thank you all for your kind comments. Mette, I wish I had a fish-eye-lens! This was shot F22, ISO 200 at 18mm with an 18-70mm lens mounted on my D70. Other than levels, no PS manipulation.
