When exactly do you need a model release. I have a pic of my son swimming. You can not see his face, it is him mid-stroke with his swim cab and one arm out of the water. You can not see his name on the cap either.

Newbie question, sorry.

If someone can recognise themselves then you need a release, and even if you think its doubtful its best to get the release if possible to cover youself

Every shot I uploaded that had people in it has been rejected so far. I have one of a guy in Vietnam holding up sticks of incense in front of an alter. His raised arm completely covers his face but the shot was rejected because I didn't have a model release. They seem to be fairly strict about that here. (I'm still learning the ropes myself.)
