I never realized that diving was so beautiful. Let’s put it in 3 categories: 1. Victory 2. Success 3. Belly-flop.
The difference between “Victory” and “Success” for a diver may rest in the scores of the judges. And “Belly-flop”, well, it just hurts (it is called belly flop..).
I’m guessing every good diver has experienced all of these. But what makes these good swimmer into a great divers?

Photography Equipment Used
I used a Fuji X-T1 with old film lenses and Fuji X100T but also added a Fujifilm XF 10-24mm f/4 R IOS lens (15-35mm FFe). This lens is surprisingly expensive (for me) at about $900. But what it does it does well. IOS stands for Optical Image Stabilization, which gives the camera in whole a 4-4.5 stop difference vs. without it. This means, basically, more options when working with speed and light.
