Very dramatic. Nice vantage point.
Great lighting, focus, composition!
Great! The curved lines of the rock and the lighting all draw your eye to the climber.
tadam200, Thank you. I tought about that edge issue as I was posting this picture, and in all honesty I can't remember if that edge was taped or not. This was taken almost 10 years ago. I have to hope that when we rapped down the previous day we took care of the issue one way or another. Also, good eye to recognize the Kor Roof!
caughtinside, Thanks, I have a photo I call "Variation on the hated butt shot" which I posted in the Photographer's Critique Forum. In that pix I took out the climber and and his butt and just have the shadow!
Great capture. Nice colors on the model. You got her face, and in an atheletic pose. Good leading lines of the rope. Great composition too!
Great action shot! You can see the effort in his face. Love the colors too.
Thanks cologman, the shadow saves the hated butt shot!
Reminds me of me on many climbs! Great picture.
Excellent! Great exposure and composition.
Wow, good timing on this shot. Good lighting and expression (not to mention fashion sense!)
Nice! With the light/dark compostion and the climber in both sides it has a Ying/Yang feel.
Great composition, exposure and point of view!
Thanks Krosbakken! I did do a version of it that way and it does look pretty cool. It's here:
I had a feeling that was going to be asked! It's cause swallows used to nest in the one of the cracks on the climb!
Good point, but someone had to carry the wine!
Thanks booboy, yours looks way scarier!
Had the same thing happen to me but in an entirely different state. That SOB really gets around!
Fantastic composition, exposure, and scenery. Very well done!
Love the lighting and composition!
Nice leading lines in this capture.
Thanks! I know most people do not like indoor gym shots so I tried to create something interesting with the lighting. (It helps having a pretty subject also!)
Thanks all. I'll let Emilie know. Thanks getsomeethics I'll get in contact with moosejaw.
Wow, makes my palms sweat!
Wonderful action, exposure and depth of field.
and a great athelete!
Thanks all, my goal was to shoot an indoor shot that people could appreciate. Campus board training is so dynamic, there is a lot of opportunity for good action shots.
Wonderful shot. If they ever needed a photo to accompany an article about overcrowding in Yosemite, this would be the shot! Just like ants.
Love the expression and rock texture you've captured.
Like that spotlight! Nice way to vary the angle too.
A granite Astronaut!
Face climbing on beautiful sandstone.
Thanks all, the settings were 1/125 @f/8. It took three tries on different training days to get the angle, lighting and exposure worked out. I used auxillary lighting for this. Two flashes, one behind her and one lashed to the campus board above her. The are triggered by pocketWizards. I first tried to get some motion blur but couldn't get an amount that I was happy with so I ended up totally overpowering the ambient light to freeze the action and to make the background almost black.
Stephen, it is towards Stealth Wall. It's between Cannibal Gully and One Hand Clapping. It may actually be called Touch and Go, but I can't tell for sure from the topo.
I like the lighting, composition and expression.
Wow, this looks like something out of the Hobbit!
For my profile icon
Frog says the crux was the overhang, he says "Thank you Lord for my sticky feet and hands". He says it went at frogfourteen. I think that's a little overrated myself.
Wow, great timing!
