Great shot Ed. I really like the action that you've captured here. Best of all though, I love the rich colors .. the greens are absolutely lush, and the boys really stand out against the green.
Very well done;

Boa tarde Edward

Hi Edward
Excellent decisive moment capture, very sharp, with great vivid colours, a fantastic light, a delicious movement and, as usual, a perfect mood reminding the «magic fifties» and the atmosphere of the English college teams (that I know only by movies and books).
Best regards, mb

Hi Ed,
Hard to say better than Jose in his comment!
Yes, the mood renders a real fifties ambience.
You have surely help to compose the scene as a director of movie would have done.
I am impressed by the interaction of the swimmers, the beauty of the light, the vivid colors of the foliage, the reflection in water but above all, by your impeccable, creative and artistic signature on your work.

good concept for this photo!!

Hi Edward,
Great shot; very good warm colors, sharpness and presentation, but the best is the subject. This part of daily life move the spectator to past days when young take part more in sports and pleasures connected with nature than now.
Very, very nice.

Ed, A striking photo. Colours are fantastic.
