the yellow sling is attached to a "beta placement"-a nut hidden out right of the climb behind a little flake

3 out of 5 stars second granite_grrl-could do with more sharpness and a little bit more saturation. but awesome scene and really nice compostion...

sport climbing-read the area: "draw BOULDER problems"-must be a grade IV wall....

apparently i didn't look very hard-cause when i first glanced at this photo it looked like the mountains in the background were in fact water....now that i've seen the mountains, i can't see the water...almost like the duck rabbit...blask http://www.uic.edu/com/eye/LearningAboutVision/EyeSite/OpticalIllustions/DuckRabbit.shtml

why does every one want to see a color copy of pretty much EVERY b&w shot on this site?

b&w is usually a deliberate artistic/creative choice from the "norm" of color photography.... maybe you should ask "what does b&w bring that color doesn't?" instead of "why isn't this color?" you might learn something or perceive something new, aesthetically, about a place, climb, mood, etc

3 out of 5 stars i really like the pic----blown out background is a bit distracting, though....

3 out of 5 stars cool shot, though it is a little overexposed and way too much negative space in this shot-----too much empty blue sky. if there were some rad clouds, a rainbow, sunset/rise, etc you might be able to get away with all that sky. but a washed out sky taking up more than 2/3 of the shot....

3 out of 5 stars good composition, but the climber is blurry and the color is pretty blah----try a diff time of day and make sure your subject is in focus

on the thumbnail, it totally looks like you're naked! and it'd be a good title if you were....FREE!!!

4 out of 5 stars this is definitely a great shot----i like the framing, the perspective, the moment. koodus on all that. but i have to say that it ain't perfect.....the highlights are a little blown out, and there is a fair amount of glare detracting from the overall aesthetics. overall though it is a great pic

The egg's location must be obfiscated and hidden from all but the most dedicated searcher. It, by NO means, is at Mt. Lemmon, in Southern Arizona, in the US. And that info is DEFINITELY not just above your comment next to the words "photo location"
