Great perspective Laurie!
The swimmer looks really small compared to the rails in the pool.
Good job with this and good luck. #776058

Congrats Laurie - great shot!! #776967

Mette Vendelboe Allison 9/14/2004 9:04:07 AM

Is it taken with a fish-eye-lense or manipulated in PS? Great twist and perspective anyway! Congratulations! #778615

Laurie M. Elmer 9/14/2004 10:10:49 AM

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. #778934
