I've never shot swimming so I am reluctant to tell you how to do it.

I normally shoot indoor sports with a full manual setting as the light does not vary by much.

When ever I enter a new venue I take a few test shots to adjust the shutter speed, aperture and ISO. I look at both the histogram, the highlight alert and the image. I try to adjust the exposure for skin and most importantly the faces.

Looking at your images it looks like maybe you were using auto ISO. The water looks well exposed but the skin tones look a bit under exposed on my screen.

Again, thanks for sharing. We all learn from each other. I'm looking forward to hearing from some other folks with more experience shooting water sports.

Hi. Yes. I'm using autoISO with shutter ard 1/400 or 1/500 with manual f2.8. Most of them are after process abit becoz I like those pop color effect. I'll increase saturation and clarity. So I'm not sure is it the result of  under expose for skin tone.?
