Oh, contest, let me guess, its uh Adam, and the Glass Onion ;)
Wow, the day I was there, they're were a million wasps all swarming, but not stinging
I've been calling this one Fitness also. My friends always poke fun of me when I utilize the no hands rest, via the head jam
Nice Photo. It just makes me want to take off all of my cloths and jump in :)
Instead of doing that heel hook, i throw a toe hook out left and bomb up for the jug above the loose mofo that her left hand is on. Theres a no hands rest in the crack you see too ! :)
Man that thing is a mofo, I hope to send it this year, I was so close last year, I am at full extension and just getting my finger tips on the pos pocket
What a beautiful shot, This was taken from diamond point I gather?
I'll def work that thing to death this season, I was so close last year. Even with a high step on the undercling, I am reaching the POS pocket at full extension. Expect to see this one on this years extension of the bouldering video.
It is not to bad to start doing it from bolt to bolt. There is one hard move at the bottom "kneebar" But I think that you can skip it if you grab the first fixed draw and get into the knee bar. The subsquent moves up until you get pretty high are mellow (juggy but pumpy)
hey, nice watch
Its better to lead it then set up a hanging belay from the trees and rap off over near little help
what route is it?
She looks up the build, she says "Hey, I'm thinking of jumping"
Yeah, she's on a top rope
There is a ladder, then a scramble, the a ladder, the route in the middle is a POS
I want to go out into the middle and bounce up and down, though hopefully I won't match the fundamental frequence :-/
Try doing it as a face climb, w/o stemming
I think the darkness adds to the quality of the photo
and to imagine....this is taking place in a dry county
15 feet, try 30 feet !! ;) You know, I learned the hard way that Anasazies don't float!!
There's some junk pockets out to his left. Its much better to do it static, however, I think I ended up throwing for it.
Its unnamed in Thomson's guide I am pretty sure. That route is a mofo, specially if your short, if you tall it may be 11b or whatever they call it.
great photo steph!
I just cannot get any good photos of this route from the ground, this is definitely a rapel or tree photo route. What a quality route this was, I gave the onsight to my partner, a must do, and easy for the grade.
course the in your face move is on the arete. You can do this as a sport route if you link up with "little help" to the left
there's a cool little variation if you go out left and traverse in, its fun.
i smear a foot out left, where you see someone chalked.
I got out left, its less physical and more technical. Every time I have done this routes, its been rainy and drippy, "it stays fairly dry i the rain, but still gets danky". Defintely would like to try it when its dry.
Nice colors, and defintely a hard onsight.
really cool photoshop effect!
I like this photo, good shot and colors.
Nice :). Im in pittsburgh til next semester, this rain has been killing me. Heading out to Colorado though for 9 days, hopefully it won't rain out there!
Nice photo :)
This is a good one to boulder also.
Nice action sequence in the photo, though posed, looks quite good.
Nice looking Photo!
In the New River Rock book, this area is considered upper endless, not Beauty. It there a break in endless wall before this section? There is a major break before you reach beauty.
Bring on the Cat photos dude ;)
I think its a great photo, a little fuzzy, was this taken digi or scanned? I think with a better scan and a color balance in photoshop and it'll be a great photo
Ro Shampo is 5.11+/5.12-. I've heard both
6 Days at the LAKE!!!! Should have hit up the New some...much better quality routes in my opinion "though probably no a majority opinion"
thwap! look out right for a decent foot, you can get the lip of your toe under it and keep your feet.
I am pretty sure that that is "Pioneer Hop". I have a scar on my palm from trying that problem too much.
I definitely like the way that the sun comes through the trees....really the photo is featuring the rock, not Adam's back ;)
All those spotters, The beauty of this route is that you really don't need any because the landing is just pefect!
its a little sketch on that big huuuuuge flake!! Definitely solid and a good route, be sure to do the extension "if this is indeed Look Who's Pulling"
The route, infact, takes gear in horizontals...sketchy, but manageable.
Yeah, its how I was hanging to get the shot :)
Apollo doesnt count, its a jug haul! :)
Whip out the wire brushes and super soakers filled with bleach! Here comes a new boulder problem~!
Very nice photo, Torrent is certainly one of my favorite climbing areas at the red.
definitely did it in photoshop, though I have recently gotten a new camera, so no more of that!
Red pointing is finally "doing" it, without falling, it doesnt matter which try. Flashing/Onsighting is first try, depending on whether you have information "flash" or no information "onsight". There is a very grey line between onsight and flash, however, a very controversial issue.
I don't think that V8 exists at Cooper's Rock....its nice to know that you sent both of them though
I love the spotter's Look!
I believe that it is christina who certainly deserves the label sexy and also, of course frickin awesome.
Its a Nikon D-70 with a 18-70mm f3.5-4.5G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom Nikkor
Yeah, Adam is the most "reckless" person I know when it comes to safety...Adam, aren't you going to finish your not? Adam: "eh, im not gonna fall anways, even though this route is so Ill"
I shrunk it down to the largest size that they would allow for RC.com
ouch....btw, adam didn't post his own photo.
yeah he's single! ill give you his email and digits if you want ;)
The quote of the 5 day trip at the red was "ADAM, DO IT FOR MOTHER SHEEP!!". Lots more photos of adam at RRG coming soon "shirtless and bandana ho!"
Wow, you are hot mother sheep, looking for a nice, climber dude in the east named danno? Adam uhh has gf...yeah, adam is taken....yeah....but I'm SINGLE...
Its Danno btw ;)
Its the way I do it...
Definitely a good photo !
It really is just a lot of body tension + there is a hidden pocket out left!
I have not tried the traverse yet, how is it?
Its just a beautiful crack that just EATS stoppers!
We TRed the route next to this "which uses the flake" it sure is HUGE and HOLLOW :)
I have no idea why I put it in the "sport" category
The photo was taken, hanging from the shuts from the top of the second pitch of the route itself. Infact, I had to do a commando retreat to get out of his way!
not that route, there's a route that goes straight up the left flake at 11d
i didn't sharpen it any, i only hit one photoshop button and that was autocontrast "i under expose one stop generally for climbing photos so i can shoot faster"
Wow Mac, someone gave you a One, it must be your horrible green shirt...
Oh, you know that us climber guys looks at the shoulders first
The black border looks really good
I was just hanging
Got em on ebay , yeah man!
Ive never had a photo warrant a topic on the forum, i guess there's first time for eveything. Well, not everything...
If you look at the tree, you can see some chalk on the tree, when I was up there on lead, i was freaking out, trying to grab the ledge, the last bolt is about 10-12 feet down, I ended up grabbing the "thank God" tree which christina casually avoided.
That is soooo funny, the orange bracelet just seems to be popping up everywhere!!!
Nice catch trenchdigger, the truth of the matter is that there is a red sling hanging from the tree for directional "My fixed line was hanging pretty far right", and the red sling was pretty distracting, so I did indeed do a sloppy job clonning out the red sling, infact, it was a 3 minute cloning job the following morning to email it out, and then I just got complacent because no one else noticed it, once again good eye dude :). I have printed this photo as a 10x15, I am curious if anyone will be able to pick out the reminants of the sling "I would not have noticed unless I already knew it was there." But she was leading it. I'll post another photo from the set so you can all see how distracting it is
And indeed, the new has many great trad climbs. Bridge Buttress and Junkyard are two, super short approach, destinations with high concentrations of high quality trad climbs ranging from 5.6 "easily flakey, new river gunks", to 5.11c "Marrionette" (harder stuff too), with a major pile up of 5.9s including Jaws, New Yosemite, Four Sheets to the Wind....the list just continues.
Its funny, being a sport wennie, i was hesistant to upload this photo, thinking that no one would like it, but imagine that, there's so many hardcore trad dudes and dudettes out there that just drool for full on cracks "no face holds on this one!". In my opinion, the route is rather stout for 5.8. Feels harder than any 5.11- face or slab that I've ever touched, and Tom just cruised it, it was awesome!
Check out this shot
He's gonna do the 5.15c second pitch
I meant to photoshop out the big stick clip "not even mine", but then I caught enough hell the last time i cloned something out.
Well, my friends putting up with me is the biggest obstacle, its not really a big deal, ascending is fast etc. Thanks :)
I wish I had RC.com stalkers.....Hey climber chics, I'm solid on 5.11 sport and I'm single!
Not a biggie, they're tape gloves, you just cut and reuse
I think that he was kidding ;)
A true sport climber at heart...
There's an iron band that resembles "Africa" at the base.
Who needs gear when you're in a perfect handcrack?
Slopers yeah right, they're jugs, polished, heck no, they're super good friciton too.....its the red...its a jug haul, handing on is the crux
Its actually a real flash, not just the on-camera flash...but like I said, I just got it and am new to this whole picture taking thing...
Its really dark under the cave, i had no choice but to flash...I just started using a flash, do you think that I should flashed with less intensity?
its a natural formation
It felt harder than 5.9 to me, but then, im a sport wennie
I would guess that unless he was shooting with a filter, the red's were brought out, since the skin is curiously red and the same tone as the rock, but then again, who doesnt photoshop their photos? If he doesn't then he's the man, if he does, he's still the man.
what the heck are you talking about??????? flash doesnt have anything to do with toproping...
And I really think the other shot from the set is MUCH better!
Sorry, I forget that "filters" is something that is associate with photoshop also, what i meant is what I am sure you are doing with (real) filters, (I am doing) in photoshop
Unfortunately, the photo is underexposed, try in photoshop, correcting the levels to brighten up the photo, this will blast out the backgroud, but it will look better
In this photo, the focus (i think) is on the face, not the hand. Note to self, focus on hand when shooting with fast glass
A great action shot, perhaps if you cropped the image to focus more on the climber? Even though the problem does look good, I think it would look better closer in on the climber, perhaps 80 percent of the frame the climber?
You spelled nemesis wrong ;), im a really bad speller, i had to look it up on dictionary.com
Green Block Test Piece infact, V6
man, if i was her dad, id kill you guys.....so crude
the name on the photo detracts from the image
The text in the shot is just horribly distracting, I voted 7 on an otherwise 9 shot because of it
Thanks...I wonder that about a lot of photos, but I was guessing, because of the two climbers in the background and + you can only see half his face, shrug...Though his last piece of gear is about 10 feet below him
What camera, lens?
Jeez guys, 6.2 whats so bad about this photo?
ouch! definitely not fake, thats cheating, 50mm F1.4
heck yeah dudette
He's about 35-40, which is more than safe for a water jump! Everyone should try this, its great!
Only the first time
I never lie
OH yeah, SPLASH!
She's a hottie (and single I think too!)
rubber friction is actually great, I smear just like I smear with dry shoes, though the sloshing is never pleasant
what the heck are you talking about!!! we don't sandbag, its just everyone else...yah thats it
i think thats just the color of his shoe
"Golden Path" it seems is the name of the problem.
Nice One Dude
Down the hill from the Good Block right?
That's death block for sure
"Roof of Death" good problem, though its pretty safe assuming you're long enough to do it static (I'm 5'8.5" with 6' of arms and can)
This is Anti-Elvis Area
"Cooperchaun" I believe its called, you people and your low balls!
"Roundhouse" - V5 (though soft for V5?)
This problem is called "humpy", itll probably go in the guide at V4, sound about right?
Is this at Tilted Tree?
"Long Roof" V5 and pretty hard at that!
Nothing like a bolted crack...
oh, i could see it getting a low rating because its just so easy to get the "wow the sky is moving" effect, shrug, cool shot though :)
if it were to come uncliipped, it'd be at least a 40 + footer
What lens?, 20, 28mm??
Man, I love those things, best climbing pants ever!
V1 = 10c/d at least thats what it used to be cough
I used a 81a skin tones filter, though I still had trouble with the contrasts in this set, the skin tones and the rock were so similar. Also, I've been trying to learn "White Balance" which is throwing my colors off I think
Now now, Christina, are you cheating on me and letting other take photos of you??? Nice one :)
No straight lines, I cropped it a little too, there was the spotter in the background who was hardcore distorted.
Does that mean "Knee-Bar" or something like "BONZAI!"
sWEET, I'll def have to learn that, thanks!
Man, you guys are hilarious, I'm sure adam is loving it just as much as I am! :)
Its actually 12d/13a, I was trying to be humble
I just did this edit, email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions.
just a suggestion, in photoshop, edit your levels (ctr-L) to brighten up the foreground (shade), then use the history brush to bring back the colors in the background
I never said 12a, I said 12 ;)
nice shot, glad to see you're still kicking butt at the red
maybe 12a, A0 :)
I dont think there's any way to get to the top of the coliseum under 12d? (what is the 12a variation?) :)
it is infact a fisheye
list the camera/lens? im curious
I love slab, nice shot dude!
Man, that looks hard for 11a
I've always wanted to get a shot similar to this; though my vision is a little higher, with a climber performing the perfect set-up "Hero-Hang" shot. Who wants to be my climber? I'll take the picture!
PS I'm moving down to the new starting mid-august for the rest of my life, woo woo!
Man, i never heard of anyone getting jacked on Under the Milky Way, which bolt? Going to two?
Thanks for the white balance info, ive since been using the manual white balance, its pretty tight!
I have a remote cord for the flash, otherwise it would have bounced off the rock in front of the camera.
I just want to jump in!
His body is actually blocking two bolts, its very "NOT" runout at all.
In photoshop, hit control-l to auto levels, it'll go from dark to perfect (Be sure to remove the black border first!) Its good to under expose and then bring out the contrast in PS
Nice guys! I cannot wait to move to the new. What're you shooting?
Well....I guess if thats all you got to climb down there... :)
I love seeing people boulder with tape gloves :)
It looks like your white balance was off, consider color balancing in photoshop?
Yah, I know I biffed it, but its the best of the series, thanks for the info, ill have to look into that!
Nice shot, i suggest a faster lens (aperature), say a 50mm F1.4. The climber would be in focus, but the background would be blurry and less distracting. Way to be hardcore, I remember climbing with you at the red and taking photos of you as well.
ouch! Thats pretty rough man
The last piece Mac had was the whiteish runner below Mike's feet (in picture), he was one move above the "pinch" which you can see in the photo. It was pretty close to the ground!
Thanks guys :)
Good shot with the water, what camera are you using? I'm totally impressed that the climbers and boulders are balanced properly with the water being (not overexposed) as well.
im suprised every likes this photo (well at least some of you). I had a lot of trouble with the color balance, him being bald (no offense dude, I think you bic it?), but there was a lot of reflection. I opted to blow out the "reds" instead of white.
The Caption is what I was saying to her while she was climbing it :)
Hey Claire, I miss you!
No wait, I think that's my long long last cousin, Claire?
Yah, they all were in the same sequence
id got into photo shop and adjust your levels to balance the face and just allow the trees and rock to be blown out a little
The perspective is a little off, its not that long of a move...pretty much just a throw, the other in the sequece is him sticking it.
btw kudus dude...i've never seen anyone just freeking go for it like you! Especially on a trad route! Man, I really had to wail to get that nut out!
Oh get off it guys, who cares.....you complain about someone to your buddies, not on a public forum....Don't you care that Eric is going to read that? Come on, quit being so condescending.....its like I'm admonishing a little kid here....
I'd go in PS and get rid of the shadow on the shirt, though the rest of the shadows from the trees makes for a good effect.
What pin ;)...haha....I havent lead it since the pin bombed.....
why shoot at f2.8? The depth of field is so narrow anyways, why not try and bump it down to f1.4 and focus on the face or hand for clarity? Cool shadows
Oh and who cares how good of a climber you are, its about having fun....I'm a crappy climber; I'll never be good, but I have fun doing it, its retards like you that detract from the sport. I hope you fail miserably soon and quit like so many others I've seen come and go in the sport
"he struggles up s--- in the gym" - Not that I'm one to really takes sides on things, but I see the problem now, the doche bag must be a gym rat....Yah, I suck in the gym too, but then the gym is gay and who cares right? Because its the gym and it sucks (unless you have security issues and need to try and impress some babes)....Lets see you hope on a trad climb thats way over your head? Now that is ballzy.
in photoshot, adjust the levels and you'll have a great shot!
I'm wondering if he ever got his cam back too :)
What camera/lens are you using?
what the pins gone? Lets turn it into a sport climb! (Oh wait, its not already? It takes such good gear :))
definitely a photoshop job, i went overboard with the levels.
So my secret goal is to have put all my friends on the front page of RC.com...man Jay, you're the fastest ever....first photoshoot and bam!
Fisheye? or is that just the shape, it looks funko distorted
Looks like it should be a trad route? Thats what I thought when I saw the sweet shot, and I open to Vote 10 and see the age old argument about bolting routes that could go gear.....Hey man, you drill em, I Clip em! BTW Fisheye Lens? Looks sweet
Its funny...for most of the sequence, I was way off to the left (see the other photo). Then I caught the wild look in Jay's eyes....its like he was seeing a girl for the first time...so I swung over and rolled off a few before I swung back. Oh I was shooting 35mm F2.0 (on digital) btw.
I just posted the topo (Whale Boulder). We called them all V4. its problem 6 on the topo.
I think we called it V3 for the guide, i'd have to look. I heard that it was not V4 because of a hold break, but I went down and did it and its probably still V3..maybe we went soft and called it V4..shrug, what do you guys think?
And she's sure got a nice rack, J_ung, are those your nuts?
Man, thats a sweet shot, I think I've met her before.
What problem? Nice shot dude, I bet its great that is so bright there, you can really shoot fast!
nice fish eye
ugh, jay, that doesn't look like you?
Man, I bet that sucks....i'd def have a breast reduction if I had boobs and well...was a woman...That's gotta shut you down in a "big" way.
Then it'd look like he was laying on a sidewalk? :)
Yah, it is steep there isn't it? :)
Course the roof is about 20 feet vertical, you don't really wanna fall until you're into the roof
Its like...super super deep...like wayyyyyy super deep :)
Why is it called "S" Crack :)
I'm sure you can use PS2 to straighten things out (its one of the fitlers, I'm not sure which)
interesting lens distortion
I really wish I knew how to spell siloutte
I took the shot knowing that I was going to silloutte it, I adjusted the levels accordingly and poof! Green! Only one photoshop button use (levels). Glad you like it :)
come on guys, vote it down!
you guys can't vote my "profile" shot way up, someone give it a 6!
well, of course, I rapelled when I was taking photos :)
When I'm taking a shot like this, I'll spot meter off either the climber or the sky
you have one of two options with this shot. 1, Sihouette it, 2, blow out the back ground some to brighten the climber, both would look good!
The point of that one is to bat hang and then dive in :). its not about "making it to the top", its more about making it to a bush, or a specific hold, or just hanging upside-down like an idiot and jumping! Its great, no pressure, no grades, no worries (except bees and hitting wrong and drowning)
Did you use any filters for this shot?
I used an ENGR scale to measure the height (assuming my height to be 5') and comfirmed with x = 0.5at^2, about 65 feet from where I jumped. It wasn't really bad either.
I think I ended up sticking a 0.5 in there (yellow TCU), and then moving up another stance past where you are for my next piece.
I really had to do some finangling, I underexposed a good bit. How does the contrast look? I'm still figuring out the nuances of my new monitor.
Takes decent gear...
I actually left that in on purpose, I'm suprised someone noticed it. :)
Uh, this thing's been done....like years ago
that sunshine actually
wow........uhhh nice photo ;) the setting doesn't lend itself to quality though!
And I though that I was CRAZY!
its not totally rusting through, looks good to me!
I think it got upgraded after I posted the photo...
That's a bolt, when they drain the lake, you can actually climb the route. I climbed it out of the boat to rig the photo-gear.
maybe a 10 min exposure?
its across from whipperwill, theres also a sport climb to the left
I definitely would have shot this one vertical, why horizontal>????
Hey, look, I'm in balance!
And you know...Jay just got THAT much cooler, he just bought a Mac...once you go MAC, you don't go BACK!
Yah, we belayed from the ground. What, you don't just lean across and clip it??? :). It was actually already stick clipped from when I climbed it (I had to get to the top right! :) )
man, I dunno if its just my LCD monitor at home/work, but I'm just not getting the contrasts/colors...what do you guys think, a little more red?
woop my bad on the name
thats super cool :)
I'm not holding a draw!
West Virgina..the only Salt Water we have comes out of the tap.
looks like you over expose yellow, I'm assuming you didn't use any (real) filters?
Man, that looks like a GREAT sport climb!
Well, I didn't vote, but the lighting is bad, and the color is a little off. The perspective is ok..can't really see anything behind the boulder of interest (yay logs) and the boulders blurry in the foreground are detracting from the focus.
oh and upload it as a 400x600 so it doesn't look so blurry.
Well, if you look at the draw, its pointing mostly down (hanging on her)
Man, I'd totally PS out those people at the base too
What camera are you using? I found that the D200 does a really good job with shadows (at least for digital)
Tough lighting, way to make it work out! I love obvious reference to the shot of Elissa as well :)
Nah, its totally safe.
I always had a tough time getting a good angle of this route...honestly, you'd think it'd have many of them, but I could never get it to work. Looks good vern.
Though Lighting, you should try to not take photos into the sun (notice how its waaaay blow out).
One trick though is to expose based on the background, then adjust the image to be balance for the climber, then use the "History" brush to bring back the proper contrast of the sky. (Assuming you have photoshop) :)
I've never liked photos from behind, yah the rock looks cool, but how about from above the climber? or from the side?
I've always had that one on the hit list, though I've never even seen it til now.
I'd change the climber's shirt to blue of the sky, that'd be neat
Whenever I'm gettting setup for a shot, I'll have everyone move all their crap out of the shot, not a bad idea for sure...definitely goes from a shot thats worth showing your friends to a shot worth sending to the mags. Nice photo dude.
Uhhhh bolted crack :)
I like the framing; how is Pebble Beach anyways? I have it tabbed in my guide, but have never been there.
So in the new guidebook, it says "Sooo...you want to climb 5.12, here's a list of them that are easy for the grade". I get spanked on this thing every time.
I like it. I wish I could see more of the route, but the colors are just great
Nice Shot man, though tough lighting with the sun on the rock! I'd have exposed based on the rock, then photoshopped the dark portion to match that. Its always tough getting a shot with sun/shade.
I really like the blue color in the sky, quite nice, wish I was there. I hope you were belaying with a GriGri (while taking photos :-) )
Cool shot, can you upload a larger image? The pixel fuzzies really ruin a great shot.
Man, its a great route :)
Cool shot, what lens/Aperture was this shot?
with the new RC.com, upload it at 1333x2000 so we can see the full size!
Yah, I just photo tagged it, the rating comes from the tag info, not my end. I was thinking 11a myself, but saw that you set it at 11b in the online portion.
Well...you do what you can when you're hanging...the lighting is actually terrible, I made due with what I had.
too bad you weren't hanging on the other side, good one though
cool profile shot...your a boulderer right ? :)
I love your usertag "heightsdontscareme" Its like saying "Imnotafraidofelevators" which I really am....
Man, thats a lot of (extrodinarily) nice drawing for four routes :)
I'd so love to be your abused boyfriend :)
Oh and cool shot :)
One thing that I learned, with posting photos, is to only post one (choose the best) instead of several....just a thought.
Great Shot Man
Bloody knuckles and still looking for more, fabulous!
Yah, that long reach is a heartbreaker isn't it :)
Is there any logical order to the ordering of these posts? :)
its almost vertical......pretty stteeeeep to be calling slab :)
Jay, Upload them at 1333x2000 x 300 DPI since its the new max size for photos here (yah!)
Bummer, I figured that thing had been done, too obvious of a line.
how do you get down? :)
Nice shot man.
Nice photo, lets see some of you out on the rocks using those guns!
Was that a photoshop super contrast job? Or did you get that off the Camera? (Honest question, if so how??) I remember you speaking in a post a while ago about getting stuff off the lens that I can only get in PS.
Way to Solo! yah!
I can send you some "deer" photos from WV, but most of them have bullet holes.
Tough lighting....but what can you do right?
Man, looks like you gotta time it with the waves! Well not really.
You're soloing a sport route? or just bouldering the start?
Nice man! Its great to see that you guys are roped together on the top. If one person slips, both are taking the plunge! Just kidding. What route man?
HOOKED ON BIONICS WERKED FOR ME!
Ahhhh so thats the route which Cal made the conversion?
Why not clip and lower?
I like the hair (and moreso, the not lack there of)
"Cowboy Lovin' " I think is what they called this one (12a/b?) maybe 12a, what'd you think?
Hey, you're really pretty :) I like the hair.
Nice DOF and use of flash (or some key PSing), hands a little over exposed (use history brush if you underexposed enough?)
Good shot though.
you know..like what country, state, etc?
where are the "lilly" boulders?
Yah man, she's a cutie!
Looking for attention? Probably not the best way to get some...
That nut looks too big...
too bad he's not wearing a shirt, otherwise you could have brightened the rock...perhaps brighten then bring back the detail with the history brush?
In photoshop, i'd edit - levels and slide the middle bar right a little bit, it'll get rid of that "grayish" hew and make the colors pop even more.
Too bad she worse a white shirt...I usually make my friends wear "colorful" shirts or give them mine to wear. Good shot!
Looks like you got some dirt on your sensor plane...easy clone job though, Nice Shot
Makes me want to go to Squamish...
You don't look 15, more like 20 or 22
Too bad it was sunny...
You know, you attached the image to (Launch Pad, 12c), nice one!
You sure are sewing that one up?
Nice Fisheye Action going there, what's the lens?
I'd adjust the "Hue" a little...looks kind of green. Unless, of course, the rock is THAT green.
I think I'd play with the levels a little bit in PS...though the main problem with the shot is that the shirt color matches that of the rock. I would have asked, whoever the random attractive girl in the shot is, to wear something red or blue.
Is that a professional model?
blur the edges of the inverse select blur, its less noticeable
oh, and maybe if the climber was wearing a bright shirt or something? They really blend into the rock
Wish I could see the ground, figure out how high the climebr is...also maybe a narrow depth of field.
In the future, I would consider having everyone move their gear out of the shot. It seperates this shot from something you show your buddies to something you submit to the mags.
followed by coffee, mushrooms and hours of fun.... =) nice one dude
You shouldn't post this on RC.com, send it into R&I instead...once its posted on RC.com they won't take it in the mags.
Nice one dude.
Nice photo. I really love how the climber is in color, but the background is borderline grayscale. Nice one dude.
I call the blue route!
nice use of off camera flash. I tend to use a second flash to highlight the face.
Definitely a good one - the only nitpicky detail I would add is consider adding a warming gel to your flash.
(Paul and I are friends and I'm kidding)
Dude you're so lame,you know this route is like 9+?
its the red river gorge
wait I though it was 36c?
yeah - I never really figured the whole thing out - I go for girls who are more "athletic" so its not a big deal (and yes Christina - I was subtly poking fun at you.)
well - if I didn't caption it - everyone would wonder where it is (and its not like I just post them to RC.com) - thanks Jay - i started doing white borders now since my blog background is black...
its funny how it always looks weird in photos - that sorta stuff....when in real life stuff moves around a lot....
there's a 12a face move (3 bolts or something on it) - then I was thinking the roof was probably b or c - at least for my hand size, but Paul just hiked the roof part of it....its a good route though - I wish more people would get on it...
and yeah - the Tard was on purpose
blah blah blah =) JK - I like over-saturating...its um...what I do =)
I can't help but feel somewhat responsible here
I can't believe you guys are all hating on the font =)
impressive allusion =)
well - I think that you're beautiful Christina. If you weren't into chicks, I'd totally ask you out.
to be honest, Its not really a very good image in my opionion - nothing against you christina, but the color isn't very good and I didn't frame is very well...I posted it for the controversity and disappointed I was not.
Cool one =) looks like a Nikon with a fisheye? just guessing
