Oh, contest, let me guess, its uh Adam, and the Glass Onion ;)

5 out of 5 stars Wow, the day I was there, they're were a million wasps all swarming, but not stinging

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars 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

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Nice Photo. It just makes me want to take off all of my cloths and jump in :)

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars 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 ! :)

View this Photo
2 out of 5 stars 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

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars What a beautiful shot, This was taken from diamond point I gather?

View this Photo
2 out of 5 stars 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.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars 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)

View this Photo
hey, nice watch

View this Photo
Its better to lead it then set up a hanging belay from the trees and rap off over near little help

View this Photo
0 out of 5 stars what route is it?

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars She looks up the build, she says "Hey, I'm thinking of jumping"

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Yeah, she's on a top rope

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars There is a ladder, then a scramble, the a ladder, the route in the middle is a POS

View this Photo
I want to go out into the middle and bounce up and down, though hopefully I won't match the fundamental frequence :-/

View this Photo
1 out of 5 stars Try doing it as a face climb, w/o stemming

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I think the darkness adds to the quality of the photo

View this Photo
and to imagine....this is taking place in a dry county

View this Photo
15 feet, try 30 feet !! ;) You know, I learned the hard way that Anasazies don't float!!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars 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.

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars great photo steph!

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
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

View this Photo
1 out of 5 stars there's a cool little variation if you go out left and traverse in, its fun.

View this Photo
i smear a foot out left, where you see someone chalked.

View this Photo
0 out of 5 stars 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.

View this Photo
Nice colors, and defintely a hard onsight.

View this Photo
really cool photoshop effect!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars I like this photo, good shot and colors.

View this Photo
0 out of 5 stars 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!

View this Photo
Nice photo :)

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars This is a good one to boulder also.

5 out of 5 stars Nice action sequence in the photo, though posed, looks quite good.

5 out of 5 stars Nice looking Photo!

0 out of 5 stars 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.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Bring on the Cat photos dude ;)

View this Photo
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

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Ro Shampo is 5.11+/5.12-. I've heard both

View this Photo
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"

View this Photo
thwap! look out right for a decent foot, you can get the lip of your toe under it and keep your feet.

View this Photo
I am pretty sure that that is "Pioneer Hop". I have a scar on my palm from trying that problem too much.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars I definitely like the way that the sun comes through the trees....really the photo is featuring the rock, not Adam's back ;)

View this Photo
All those spotters, The beauty of this route is that you really don't need any because the landing is just pefect!

View this Photo
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"

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars The route, infact, takes gear in horizontals...sketchy, but manageable.

View this Photo
Yeah, its how I was hanging to get the shot :)

View this Photo
Apollo doesnt count, its a jug haul! :)

5 out of 5 stars Whip out the wire brushes and super soakers filled with bleach! Here comes a new boulder problem~!

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Very nice photo, Torrent is certainly one of my favorite climbing areas at the red.

View this Photo
definitely did it in photoshop, though I have recently gotten a new camera, so no more of that!

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I don't think that V8 exists at Cooper's Rock....its nice to know that you sent both of them though

View this Photo
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

View this Photo
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"

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Yeah man!

View this Photo
Mine too

View this Photo
I shrunk it down to the largest size that they would allow for RC.com

View this Photo
ouch....btw, adam didn't post his own photo.

View this 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!"

View this Photo
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...

View this Photo
Its Danno btw ;)

View this Photo
Its the way I do it...

View this Photo
Definitely a good photo !

View this Photo
It really is just a lot of body tension + there is a hidden pocket out left!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars I have not tried the traverse yet, how is it?

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Its just a beautiful crack that just EATS stoppers!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars We TRed the route next to this "which uses the flake" it sure is HUGE and HOLLOW :)

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars I have no idea why I put it in the "sport" category

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars 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!

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars not that route, there's a route that goes straight up the left flake at 11d

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars 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"

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Wow Mac, someone gave you a One, it must be your horrible green shirt...

View this Photo
Oh, you know that us climber guys looks at the shoulders first

View this Photo
The black border looks really good

View this Photo
I was just hanging

View this Photo
Got em on ebay , yeah man!

View this Photo
Ive never had a photo warrant a topic on the forum, i guess there's first time for eveything. Well, not everything...

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
That is soooo funny, the orange bracelet just seems to be popping up everywhere!!!

View this Photo
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

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
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

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
Well, my friends putting up with me is the biggest obstacle, its not really a big deal, ascending is fast etc. Thanks :)

View this Photo
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

OUCH!

I think that he was kidding ;)

There's an iron band that resembles "Africa" at the base.

Who needs gear when you're in a perfect handcrack?

View this Photo
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

View this Photo
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...

View this Photo
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?

View this Photo
its a natural formation

View this Photo
:)

View this Photo
It felt harder than 5.9 to me, but then, im a sport wennie

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
what the heck are you talking about??????? flash doesnt have anything to do with toproping...

View this Photo
And I really think the other shot from the set is MUCH better!

View this Photo
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

View this Photo
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

View this Photo
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

View this Photo
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?

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars You spelled nemesis wrong ;), im a really bad speller, i had to look it up on dictionary.com

5 out of 5 stars Green Block Test Piece infact, V6

5 out of 5 stars man, if i was her dad, id kill you guys.....so crude

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars the name on the photo detracts from the image

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars The text in the shot is just horribly distracting, I voted 7 on an otherwise 9 shot because of it

View this Photo
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

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars What camera, lens?

View this Photo
Jeez guys, 6.2 whats so bad about this photo?

View this Photo
ouch! definitely not fake, thats cheating, 50mm F1.4

5 out of 5 stars "Golden Path" it seems is the name of the problem.

Nice One Dude

Down the hill from the Good Block right?

View this Photo
That's death block for sure

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars "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)

View this Photo
This is Anti-Elvis Area

View this Photo
"Cooperchaun" I believe its called, you people and your low balls!

View this Photo
"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?

"Moby's Dick"

"Long Roof" V5 and pretty hard at that!

Nothing like a bolted crack...

View this Photo
50mm f1.4?

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Nice one!

View this Photo
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 :)

View this Photo
if it were to come uncliipped, it'd be at least a 40 + footer

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars What lens?, 20, 28mm??

View this Photo
Man, I love those things, best climbing pants ever!

View this Photo
V1 = 10c/d at least thats what it used to be cough

View this Photo
good call

View this Photo
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

View this Photo
Now now, Christina, are you cheating on me and letting other take photos of you??? Nice one :)

View this Photo
No straight lines, I cropped it a little too, there was the spotter in the background who was hardcore distorted.

View this Photo
Does that mean "Knee-Bar" or something like "BONZAI!"

View this Photo
sWEET, I'll def have to learn that, thanks!

View this Photo
Man, you guys are hilarious, I'm sure adam is loving it just as much as I am! :)

View this Photo
Its actually 12d/13a, I was trying to be humble

View this Photo
I just did this edit, email me (dbrayack@gmail.com) if you have any questions.

View this Photo
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

View this Photo
I never said 12a, I said 12 ;)

View this Photo
nice shot, glad to see you're still kicking butt at the red

View this Photo
maybe 12a, A0 :)

View this Photo
I dont think there's any way to get to the top of the coliseum under 12d? (what is the 12a variation?) :)

View this Photo
it is infact a fisheye

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars list the camera/lens? im curious

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars I love slab, nice shot dude!

View this Photo
Man, that looks hard for 11a

View this Photo
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!

View this Photo
Man, i never heard of anyone getting jacked on Under the Milky Way, which bolt? Going to two?

View this Photo
Thanks for the white balance info, ive since been using the manual white balance, its pretty tight!

View this Photo
I have a remote cord for the flash, otherwise it would have bounced off the rock in front of the camera.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars I just want to jump in!

View this Photo
His body is actually blocking two bolts, its very "NOT" runout at all.

View this Photo
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

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Nice guys! I cannot wait to move to the new. What're you shooting?

View this Photo
Well....I guess if thats all you got to climb down there... :)

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars I love seeing people boulder with tape gloves :)

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars It looks like your white balance was off, consider color balancing in photoshop?

View this Photo
Yah, I know I biffed it, but its the best of the series, thanks for the info, ill have to look into that!

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
ouch! Thats pretty rough man

View this Photo
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!

View this Photo
Thanks guys :)

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars 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.

View this Photo
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.

3 out of 5 stars Hey Claire, I miss you!

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars No wait, I think that's my long long last cousin, Claire?

View this Photo
Yah, they all were in the same sequence

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars 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

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
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!

View this Photo
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....

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
What pin ;)...haha....I havent lead it since the pin bombed.....

View this Photo
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

View this Photo
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

View this Photo
"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.

View this Photo
in photoshot, adjust the levels and you'll have a great shot!

5 out of 5 stars What camera/lens are you using?

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars 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!

View this Photo
Fisheye? or is that just the shape, it looks funko distorted

View this Photo
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

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
I just posted the topo (Whale Boulder). We called them all V4. its problem 6 on the topo.

View this Photo
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?

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 :)

View this Photo
come on guys, vote it down!

View this Photo
you guys can't vote my "profile" shot way up, someone give it a 6!

View this Photo
well, of course, I rapelled when I was taking photos :)

View this Photo
When I'm taking a shot like this, I'll spot meter off either the climber or the sky

View this Photo
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!

View this Photo
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)

View this Photo
Did you use any filters for this shot?

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
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.

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.

looks like you over expose yellow, I'm assuming you didn't use any (real) filters?

5 out of 5 stars 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.

View this Photo
oh and upload it as a 400x600 so it doesn't look so blurry.

View this Photo
Well, if you look at the draw, its pointing mostly down (hanging on her)

View this Photo
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)

View this Photo
Tough lighting, way to make it work out! I love obvious reference to the shot of Elissa as well :)

View this Photo
Nah, its totally safe.

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
tough even

View this Photo
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) :)

thats depressing!

4 out of 5 stars Nice lighting!

View this Photo
I've never liked photos from behind, yah the rock looks cool, but how about from above the climber? or from the side?

View this Photo
I've always had that one on the hit list, though I've never even seen it til now.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Nice one

View this Photo
I'd change the climber's shirt to blue of the sky, that'd be neat

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars I like it. I wish I could see more of the route, but the colors are just great

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars 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 :-) )

5 out of 5 stars Cool shot, can you upload a larger image? The pixel fuzzies really ruin a great shot.

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

Nice photo, lets see some of you out on the rocks using those guns!

View this Photo
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.

5 out of 5 stars Way to Solo! yah!

I can send you some "deer" photos from WV, but most of them have bullet holes.

5 out of 5 stars You're soloing a sport route? or just bouldering the start?

5 out of 5 stars 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?

5 out of 5 stars 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.

Looking for attention? Probably not the best way to get some...

That nut looks too big...

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars 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?

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Too bad she worse a white shirt...I usually make my friends wear "colorful" shirts or give them mine to wear. Good shot!

5 out of 5 stars I'd adjust the "Hue" a little...looks kind of green. Unless, of course, the rock is THAT green.

View this Photo
NICE DOF

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars 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?

View this Photo
blur the edges of the inverse select blur, its less noticeable

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars oh, and maybe if the climber was wearing a bright shirt or something? They really blend into the rock

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars Wish I could see the ground, figure out how high the climebr is...also maybe a narrow depth of field.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars 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.

5 out of 5 stars nice use of off camera flash. I tend to use a second flash to highlight the face.
