I just love action shoots with water spray, foam, etc. Great captures.

Somebody told me to try and focus on the eyes, is that what you do?

Love them. You managed to catch both the action and the persons in a perfect way!

Thanks all, mattyb, I use center focus point and focus on the body, it would be hard to focus on the eyes with such fast moving action. I topically shoot bursts of three shots when I see something I like in the action or expression. And use AIservo mode with back focus button depressed the whole time I am shooting.
