This photo of Michael Phelps of the US coming off the blocks of his men's 100m butterfly swimming heat at the National Aquatics Center at the Beijing 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China on Thursday, August 14, 2008 was shot at 1000th sec. at f/3.5 @ 1600 ASA on a Canon Mark III with a 400mm lens. I like this shot because it is a different view of Phelps coming off the blocks with his big feet and hands that have helped propel him to his record 8 Gold medals.

This photo of diver Huo Liang of China has water streaming from his hair as he does a reverse 3-1/2 Somersault tuck dive during the Men's 10m Platform Diving semifinal in the National Aquatics Center at the Beijing 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China on Saturday, August 23, 2008. This photo was shot at 1600 ASA at 800th sec at f/4.0 n a Canon 1D Mark III at 280mm (a 70-200/2.8 lens with a 1.4 extender). I like this photo cause you never see this much water coming off a person doing a dive, and it has a lot of definition due to the dark background and how swiftly he is doing his turn during the dive.
