You do such beautiful work with people and bring out the best girl. I love the work you are doing and hope I can someday do shots like this. What an action shot. Love the action of the water, the concentration on the swimmers face, the gorgeous colors. Swimming and diving is among my favorite Olympic events to watch. What a fabulous capture this is dear friend. Be blessed, have a wonderful day. #10326790

I agree with all the BP'er's above! Gorgeous color and wonderful detail - the excellent stop-action of the water captured is amazing - I love the stream of water pouring from her 5 fingertips back into the water - one powerful swimmer and one fantastic capture, Nina! #10334347

Nina, this is a truly amazing stop-action shot! You already had superb composition and rich colors, but the waterfall from her hand is the cherry on the sundae.
Winner! #10403374
