Photographer's Note

In my latest trip to Australia I was part of the Portuguese team competing in the Rescue2006, a competition for lifesavers from all around the world; you can find more info on this event by following this link.

My main job was to photograph the team competitors and aid in our candidacy to host the WWS2007 conference in Portugal (which, by the way, we won).

Afterwards I spent one more week, with a friend of mine (the owner of the camera) during which we traveled all the way from Melbourne to Adelaide and back. This photo and this other photo are just some of the ones I took during the trip.

In this post you can see one of our guys jumping right in to a first training session... you can also check this other posting of more pool action...

Post-processing consisted of tilting + unsharp mask + 5% to shadows + cropping + framing; colors are as they were in the original.

Hope you like it and take some time to comment it.
