Hey that looks like my car that was stolen over in Jersey.

Damn, not much of an Anchor to belay off of.

View this Photo
1 out of 5 stars What are you cutting out?

View this Photo
Thanks.

5 out of 5 stars The Chongo start is just what he is doing. It was basically a line mount created by "Chongo" one of the founders of Slack Lining. You basically straddle the rope, sit on your back leg, throw your right arm out, bring you left foot up and then rock and roll.

View this Photo
Ok how's that?

View this Photo
the cloud looks like a flying skinny old man. scary.

A response to far east climger: actually the climber is the subject of the shot. Example, squint your eyes and what is the first thing they are drawn to? The reason for the subject is discontinious shape and size. The climber is much smaller than everything else around.

View this Photo
I hope the anchors are solid.

View this Photo
did he stick it?

View this Photo
i think its a croc.

View this Photo
needs more contrast

View this Photo
too bad he wasn't wearing pink.

4 out of 5 stars Nice shot. I love silhouette shots, but think this one would be much better in B+W.

View this Photo
nice timing with the bird. or was that just luck? nice shot.

View this Photo
or some new hands.

View this Photo
how about no equalization?

View this Photo
bang!

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars well it's not a climbing shot, but it's nice.

View this Photo
love silhoettes.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars Nice sharp image! Looks like a great day for climbing.

View this Photo
2 out of 5 stars I wish the shot was much more sharp and the highlights weren't so washed out, otherwise it would have been a great shot.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars Pretty nice shot. I wish there was more contrast between the highlights and midtones, but hey. I think we've all been there and can feel empathetic.

View this Photo
Nope, no photoshop here. This was at the el cap swing in an alcove that is shady most of the afternoon. This allows for very easy silhouette shooting.

View this Photo
Don't wait, do it now.

View this Photo
looks out of focus as well.

View this Photo
2 out of 5 stars It looks like he smashed his knee against the rock.

View this Photo
Looks like homeboy could use a new spotter.

View this Photo
Nice shot. What took so long to post it? Cool clouds.

View this Photo
What kind of trees are those?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I almost licked the monitor.

View this Photo
Nice Tird Pillar.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars please get rid of the annoying date.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Quite a unique shot. A first of this sort on this site, and yet very fascinating. Where is this place?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Intriguing shot. Really enjoy the lighting and the low saturated natural hues.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars Nice depth of field use. Kind of wish the ground was a bit darker (the man is rather distracting), but nice shot.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars what bridge is that? beauty.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Damn, not another rock in sight.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Sure the lens may show "no subjective perception and will capture the true colors," but it isn't the lens showing. Film, or digital cards are only mans interpretation of what our eye "sees." All film records colors differently. No need to fight the light gradient with a trained eye.

View this Photo
2 out of 5 stars pretty alright.

View this Photo
Oh, I live here.

View this Photo
Hmm I've been there.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars How long was the exposure on this shot?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Beautiful. Nice exposure. Kind of wish the climber was exposed by a light from under him.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars nice stitch work. do you sticth with photoshop, or other program?

View this Photo
yikes!

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars The figure isn't very figurative. Too many distractions. It'd be better with all that stuff to the right cropped out.

View this Photo
2 out of 5 stars I'm with Thomas. Maybe not a 2 but the photo needs a lot of work skateman. A little tweaking and you may have something. DAFF is such a great rock, I'll have to check out this route.

View this Photo
Thosasribiere- I don't think the overexposed ground is a particular problem in this shot. It is only overexposed to you because of you social assosiation with what the ground is, in this case a bunch of trees. A flat ground only enhances the actual figure in the picture. Just my thought.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars nice hue quality. Not just another close-up pic.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars So who took this shot? Crazy exposure.

View this Photo
Oh my, I don't make that much money in a year.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars Nice clear picture, and the spire in the background is rad.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars Not sure where I'd rather be, on the rock or in the sky. Nice.

View this Photo
looks like ice.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars Nice framing work. Wish the rock exposure value was a little brighter, but the silhouette works too.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Nice shot, but I wish the highlights weren't so washed out. Awesome framing with the tent though.

View this Photo
An alright shot. Seems slightly out of focus especially on the focal point which is the highlighted nut on the left. Since this is the dominant figure of the photo is should be more in focus.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars Dont you raise your arms above your head for the tree pose?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Great idea. I guess I wish the exposed climber would have been a bit brighter. Maybe flashed him twice, or a stronger blast. Keep fooling around though, good stuff.

View this Photo
huh?

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars Actually you'd have a fake photo.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars Personally I find the rope to the most figurative "focal point" of the photograph, but it is still an alright shot.

View this Photo
Love the shot, but seems a bit out of focus. Kind of wish the climber had a blue shirt on. Nice shot though.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Nice focal point and exposure. Looks fun.

View this Photo
The quality is poor. I think the photo would explain the problem better if it wasn't so poor.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars Wait, wouldn't they still be over the water?

View this Photo
nice shot. I think the horizon should be fixed and the levels adjusted a bit.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars Good photo but it seems rather busy to me. Sorry about your friend as well.

View this Photo
looks just great.

View this Photo
looks just great.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars grrrrooowwwllllll.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars lol, lol

View this Photo
all that friction on the slings could be very bad.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Whoa dude is that in Yosemite?

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars Nice shot, but the levels are off a bit. I'd darken the B.G. and give it a bit more contrast.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars How come the location says somewhere in Wyoming, but the shot is in Yosemite?

View this Photo
I wish the DOF was more selective and brought the climber out more. It's a great shot though.

View this Photo
hell yeah midwest.

View this Photo
Love the motion blur. Powerful. he stand out nicely with the red rock.

View this Photo
Dope shot. Killer.

View this Photo
wow this is really small.

View this Photo
and an alien into his "crack"

View this Photo
Ah I love Devil's Lake. Which route is that? Trying to remember the east bluff.

View this Photo
that's some crazy rock.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars I remember these boulders. Crazy, it's been years since I was there. Beautiful.

View this Photo
Holy $h(!. 9 years old, nice job. Great shot.

View this Photo
nice shot. I think the image would be better with the contrast boosted.

View this Photo
ahh which canyon?

View this Photo
yeah tuolumne.

View this Photo
nice and eerie. I wish the numbers at the bottom were gone.

View this Photo
yeah eichorn.

View this Photo
wow. so how safe are these sedona sport routes. I remember the title of the guide being something like, "A better way to die." Looks rad.

View this Photo
unique photo. nice.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars yeah the blue cast is a bit off i think. maybe prefer a warmer cast. that thing is steep as s%(t. Wow.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars stunning. you should add a border.

View this Photo
He's got a great spotter.

View this Photo
you should link your photos to specific routes.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars the rock highlights are a bit blown out. It's a pretty good perspective, but I'd work on the levels a bit.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars beautiful. The highlights at the center could be fixed a bit. Otherwise great contrast and photo.

View this Photo
pretty nice. would be nice to have more emphasis on the climber.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars beware of lightning. nice shot.

View this Photo
This would have worked much better if the climber had on a bright shirt and not the hue of the rock. I like it though.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars great exposure, great focus. to be picky I don't really like all the clutter at the bottom (water bottles and such). Nice capture.

View this Photo
looks fun.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars nice, but where is this?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars nice shot.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars beautiful shadow and tones. Great focus. Wish the route could be seen a bit higher.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars beautiful rock. wish the climber stood out just a bit more.

View this Photo
wow looks rather busy. crazy rock.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars good shot showing detail of rock.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars this is nice.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars nice pic but not enough detail in the highlights.

View this Photo
beautiful. the cropping seems a bit awkward though.

View this Photo
photo is blurry. could be a real nice shot, change levels and try to sharpen.

View this Photo
this has potential for a good shot. I think it is more exposed for the sky rather than the route or climber though. Could use some levels adjustment and sharpening.

View this Photo
thomas, I bet the ice was actually brown. It comes in all types of colors. YOu can see some of the ice is blue as well. Just minerals frozen into the formation.

View this Photo
it's blurry and out of focus. looks like a great route.

View this Photo
2 out of 5 stars yeah, fix the levels and it would be much better.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars nice shot, i like seeing what the climber is looking at. looks like clipping in low is going to create some major rope drag. Maybe warm up the shot a bit, but good exposure.

View this Photo
blurry and out of focus.

View this Photo
wow, lets climb it.

View this Photo
This is a nice use of lens flare.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars looks like a nice place to hang around.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars beautiful color rock. I love sedona in the autumn. nice sharp image.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars the shot is also a bit blurry, out of focus, pixelated. I think the levels could improve as well. Great vantage and perspective for sure.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars yeah doesn't look behind his leg to me, but i wish the photo was a little sharper.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars beauty.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Nice. the limited DOF makes this a rather strong picture. Simple yet powerful. great focus, exposure, and sharp image.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars The perspective is pretty good on this shot but the levels and color balance are off. There is a severe blue tint (not sure if this was intended). I think it would work better with a warmer tint.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars nice photo of the route. I wish the climber didn't blend in so much.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars nice colors and exposure. looks like fun.

View this Photo
pretty nice photo. I think the blurring could have been a little more precise.

View this Photo
pretty good shot. The original is sharp but the focus is off on the climber. Focal point is at trees and DOF just misses the climber a bit throwing them out of focus.

View this Photo
great shot but a little blurry.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars looks like the tazmanian devil.

View this Photo
I'll take it.

View this Photo
is this the bolted route that leads up to the thin crack? i've been wanting to do this for awhile. Someone told me it was a 5.9 and not in the book (new route).

View this Photo
I love that crack. I don't think it is ranger crack though. Ranger is more to the right. The 10a on the left is great also!!!

View this Photo
that certainly is.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars beauty. I wish the climber was a little more seperated from the ground. He seems to blend in too much to his background.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars magnificent.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars this is beautiful. I agree you should tell us where this is, or link the photo though.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars a pretty good shot, but you is just placed against a rock with no good perspective or composition.

View this Photo
This is a great shot, but I think the sky is way to tweaked and saturated. Looks fake. The rock color and exposure is great accompanied by the silhouette.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars this is a rad shot, nice job.

View this Photo
Nope not a 9 hour hike. Maybe about an hour with all your gear and lunch supplies. Being in Yosemite there is just so much more rock to climb right next to your car. This is the rock I've been getting into seeing that it is away from the people.

View this Photo
wow, history.

View this Photo
thomas are you still trying to get a consensus on digital or film? I bet it was digital.

View this Photo
yeah headstone.

View this Photo
Impossible? Maybe the 5.12 routes on headstone. What a great climb (sw corner)

View this Photo
How do you enjoy and 'offwidth'???

View this Photo
barn door. nice shot.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars good color and exposure, the composition lacks though.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars wow looks like a great crack.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars and all hard climbs are good photos right? this is nice.

View this Photo
colors are great. wish the climber wasn't hiding in the shadow.

Sweet. Wawona dome. Not many people up climbing up there. I'm working on a panorama topo photo of Wawona right now.

View this Photo
wow the pictured rocks ice looks good right now!

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars ahh castle hill.

View this Photo
wow, the wave of the sedimentary rock layers is crazy.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars beauty, and the snow isn't all blown out (overexposed)

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars beautiful sedona. and the mountain biking....

View this Photo
whoa, scary.

View this Photo
Wow sweet. I graduated from NMU. We never set up and tyrols across waterfalls.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars nice shot. I wish the person's hand wasn't visible in the corner.

3 out of 5 stars what route is this? looks rad. headed down in a couple weeks. PM me if you know the route. Thanks.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars another good one.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars nice. good lighting, figure placement, exposure. I dig it.

View this Photo
yeah matthes.

Coatimundi, hey I know what that is. I saw a couple down in Guatemala. That looks crazy.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars pretty nice shot. the focus and brightness levels could be a little better.

3 out of 5 stars No need to beat him up. He can just rap off the anchor to get over to the ascending point!!!

wish this was a little larger.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Great shot. The midtones are a little dark IMO.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Wow this photo has so much feeling. The beautiful rock, the shadows, the lines. Nice shot.

pacaya nice. Fuego is nice as well.

View this Photo
is this Xela in Guatemala?

View this Photo
beauty.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars nice sharp image.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I don't know about the portrait comment, but I do think the highligts are a bit burnt out. Being a bit darker would give you more detail in the water and rock. Nice unique image.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars great lighting, and exposure.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars unique image. I'd like the black spot on the right eliminated, but a nice unconventional shot.

I like the soft choice of words, "Harvested." Can people be harvested too?

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars I think the blurring helps the photo, but could have been more refined to look natural.

View this Photo
Just curious on the GND filter you use. And what power you used (.3,.6,1.2 etc.)
Thanks and fricken nice shot. Can't wait to be back in a month!!!
