Wow! Simply amazing. It succeeds where lots of shots fail, which is illustrating the scale of things.
thanks. Glad you approve coldclimb ;)
Thank you on both counts irish_ice. everyone loves the bds :)
Yeah I wouldn't say the picture sucks but it does lack composition and scale. and those close zoom makes it hard to to tell how overhung it is.
After he showed me that pic at the gym I swore I'd never boulder ... but I guess it all comes with the territory. He's doing better and outclimbing most of our group even with a softball-sized ankle ...
I agree with james_climber - this shot would be so much better if you were doing the Tom Cruise MI:2 move :P
where's the high-res version??? hurry up ...
Yeah I'll definitely take you up on that offer to go do some naked climbing ;)
Congrats on the onsight dude! Can't belive you did that on trad gear ... pretty damn burly!
Sh**t, I didn't think you heard me say that. Well, you did a fine job on that route. That was a great weekend, I hope we will have more to come soon.
You're damn right, K ... we'll kick its ass next time (hopefully in 60s weather lol). --- Thanks for all your support guys! That was great weekend!
ask and you shall receive ...
amazing shot!! 10 all the way
wow that looks insanely hard. nice composition
love the focus on his face. great timing!
it's okay. climber aren't that good for hand models anyway ... sweet pic.
beautiful shot, you should re-upload that as super-size, the preferred size and compression don't do the shot justice.
nice movement & colors
i like the underexposure considering this was shot at sunset. it's a sweet pic but a bit too static to be called dyno though - I don't see the dyno in this picture.
i see a little bit of kevin bacon ... just a smidge. the cig and the scowl are priceless !
this is one is definitely the best of them. kick ass shot.
damn nice photo, I need to start setting my alarm clock
sweet pic dude!
Thanks J. It's a shame he didn't get past the 3rd clip to the real crimp-action part - that would have given me some nice opportunities.
I lead the route after he came down and by the time I was done my pants looked like I sat down in the pool of water under the falls. I don't think I ever worked my ass off that hard on any route before. -- next time I go I'll do this on Fragile Egos. It's a sweet technical route that's at least twice as long as this one. Should allow for some great shots. Thanks for the comments/votes :)
Great shot! Love the colors and the focus on his face. Nice perspective/scenery too.
i've been doing the Thurmond exit one most of the overhung routes at the gym ... fun times :)
wow. that is some sick exposure!
One thing I will never understand is how several people rated this a "2"
nice shot dude. You're getting better every day.
ditto as above - great timing and the colors are just unreal
wow, that for all the positive feedback and and the warm welcome guys. austin.timm: thanks, I hadn't thought about that until i read your comment but that is indeed pretty cool; climbsomething: no new back portraits — i have not gotten any requests since clausti got engaged :)
THE GOOD: exposure/contrast, timing, her eyes focused on the next hold and one hand on the move all adds movement to the shot and obviously plus points for her being easy on the eyes. THE BAD: the photo is oriented the wrong way; you could flip it 180° or 90° counter clockwise from how it is now and it will improve a ton. personally i think doing 90° ccw will give you the most dynamic-looking photo (180 makes it look less dramatic); there is too much clutter in the background bags, bottles, the green thing between her arm and the rock sticks out like a sore thumb. you could edit this out w/ photoshop if you're good or move it out of the way before you go for the shot. i'd also prefer the belayer not sitting down. hope these comments help. nice pic overall
