So this is hopefully my first of many submissions here in the circle. This seems like a cool idea, and hopefully I'll be able to give decent critiques, while gleaning much info from the photo/Photoshop gurus. here we go...

They're gonna say it... they're gonna say it! :lol:

center-weighted!!!!!

;)

If this isn't a crop that you can restore to a more rule-of-thirdsy horizontal, try a vertical cropping. It is a nice shot. Nice lighting.

I like it. The only suggestions I can make would be to move the talent off-center. Either give us more rock or more trees. Some fill flash may have worked to bring out the talent's face some...... or it may not have.

My first thought is of course the centering of the talent. Beyond that, the angle is too close to the rock, as the features and bulges are obscuring the hands. If you could have moved another foot or two out from the rock, the picture would have been much the same, but the moves of the climber would be more visible. Just a thought. :)

Sweet. Thanks for all the responses. I'll see if I have/can get a shot with more of a rule of thirds going. I was hanging out in a tree, so my position was somewhat limited. There are other options for angles, so perhaps a re-shoot...in the meantime, I'm off to play in the Photoshop....

i would like to see more of the rock and less of the trees... especially cuz of the amount of glare in the background...

I go against the flow and say thay the centering is all good, I would prefer to see even exposure between background and foreground. Shooting it on a bright cloudy day light would even up the exposure.

Its more the rope that is distracting and the lack of space/height beneath the feet. Give the climber credit for the height he is at and zoom back a bit.
