Check out these two high school athletes at a swim meet.  Both images were shot within 10 minutes of each other.  Two different emotions from the same subject!

When I shoot sports images, I never rapid fire shoot–hoping that I get a great image.  I observe and try to understand the motion, the light and timing to capture the height and drama of the action.  Not every image works.  But when the stars align-oh it’s a thing of beauty!

Which do you prefer?

Butterfly Stroke Intensity

Butterfly Swimmer

Both images were processed in Lightroom with some tweaking in Niks Viveza2.
