This photograph is taken at the swimming stadium of the National Athletic Meet currently held in Tokyo. I am engaged and had gone to Maihama on that day. While finishing tasks and going back my home, I remembered that the swimming competition of National Athletic Meet was performed at this day Tatsumi international swimming stadium. Although it had been past 2:00 p.m., I dropped in the stadium. Many policemen were standing near the stadium and on a place along the street. Seemingly, the Emperor is coming for observing this swimming event, if what is thought. Probably, the policemen were mobilized by the guard. Anyway, since the stadium was no vacancy, I waited for the outside for about 1 hour, and I cound come in. I moved to the seat where diving is performed, and observed the competition. Exactly, the final of an adult age woman's platform diving was held. The diving is a competition with the shortest time until a match decides, and it is a grading competition which performs advanced technique into only a little less than two seconds. A diving cmpetition obtains a score by the rotation and the twist under fall, a pause, etc. Additionally, the water landing which does not raise a spray is called as it is no-plush, and it becomes a high evaluating point.

a good summarise of the 2 seconds dive. Was your camera setting 5 frames/second to record this or did you press 3 times the trigger?

This compilation of three pictures is very nice.
Try in future to work with a panning technic Mikio, than can you get a very sharp image of the people.
Looks to my last post on TE.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
