01 De­ter­mined

NPhoto - - Photographer of the Year - By Robert Ojeda

This is both a great por­trait and a fan­tas­tic ac­tion shot. A tilted body of wa­ter usu­ally spoils pho­tos, as it in­di­cates the cam­era isn’t straight, but in the right con­text, as here, it can in­tro­duce a dy­namic feel. In this case you feel as though the pho­tog­ra­pher, as well as the swim­mer, is emerg­ing shak­ily from the wa­ter, ready to con­tinue rac­ing. The warm cast is un­usual in a sports im­age, and the ac­tive, sharp-edged swim­mer con­trasts with his warm, gen­tly toned back­ground.
