    We know she is safe but she is not yet convinced. I always look at the timing of a photo and as well, the mood and emotion being conveyed in that brief moment captured. The young swimmer's expression says it all. It must also be said that this is just a technically wonderful shot. And your use of negative space works very well to convey the trepidation a young person might feel learning to swim in the deep end. Well done and great addition to this assignment.
