Hey that looks like my car that was stolen over in Jersey.
Damn, not much of an Anchor to belay off of.
What are you cutting out?
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.
Ok how's that?
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.
I hope the anchors are solid.
did he stick it?
i think its a croc.
needs more contrast
too bad he wasn't wearing pink.
Nice shot. I love silhouette shots, but think this one would be much better in B+W.
nice timing with the bird. or was that just luck? nice shot.
or some new hands.
how about no equalization?
well it's not a climbing shot, but it's nice.
Nice sharp image! Looks like a great day for climbing.
I wish the shot was much more sharp and the highlights weren't so washed out, otherwise it would have been a great shot.
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.
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.
Don't wait, do it now.
looks out of focus as well.
It looks like he smashed his knee against the rock.
Looks like homeboy could use a new spotter.
Nice shot. What took so long to post it? Cool clouds.
What kind of trees are those?
I almost licked the monitor.
Nice Tird Pillar.
please get rid of the annoying date.
Quite a unique shot. A first of this sort on this site, and yet very fascinating. Where is this place?
Intriguing shot. Really enjoy the lighting and the low saturated natural hues.
Nice depth of field use. Kind of wish the ground was a bit darker (the man is rather distracting), but nice shot.
what bridge is that? beauty.
Damn, not another rock in sight.
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.
Oh, I live here.
Hmm I've been there.
How long was the exposure on this shot?
Beautiful. Nice exposure. Kind of wish the climber was exposed by a light from under him.
nice stitch work. do you sticth with photoshop, or other program?
The figure isn't very figurative. Too many distractions. It'd be better with all that stuff to the right cropped out.
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.
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.
nice hue quality. Not just another close-up pic.
So who took this shot? Crazy exposure.
Oh my, I don't make that much money in a year.
Nice clear picture, and the spire in the background is rad.
Not sure where I'd rather be, on the rock or in the sky. Nice.
looks like ice.
Nice framing work. Wish the rock exposure value was a little brighter, but the silhouette works too.
Nice shot, but I wish the highlights weren't so washed out. Awesome framing with the tent though.
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.
Dont you raise your arms above your head for the tree pose?
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.
Actually you'd have a fake photo.
Personally I find the rope to the most figurative "focal point" of the photograph, but it is still an alright shot.
Love the shot, but seems a bit out of focus. Kind of wish the climber had a blue shirt on. Nice shot though.
Nice focal point and exposure. Looks fun.
The quality is poor. I think the photo would explain the problem better if it wasn't so poor.
Wait, wouldn't they still be over the water?
nice shot. I think the horizon should be fixed and the levels adjusted a bit.
Good photo but it seems rather busy to me. Sorry about your friend as well.
looks just great.
looks just great.
all that friction on the slings could be very bad.
Whoa dude is that in Yosemite?
Nice shot, but the levels are off a bit. I'd darken the B.G. and give it a bit more contrast.
How come the location says somewhere in Wyoming, but the shot is in Yosemite?
I wish the DOF was more selective and brought the climber out more. It's a great shot though.
hell yeah midwest.
Love the motion blur. Powerful. he stand out nicely with the red rock.
Dope shot. Killer.
wow this is really small.
and an alien into his "crack"
Ah I love Devil's Lake. Which route is that? Trying to remember the east bluff.
that's some crazy rock.
I remember these boulders. Crazy, it's been years since I was there. Beautiful.
Holy $h(!. 9 years old, nice job. Great shot.
nice shot. I think the image would be better with the contrast boosted.
ahh which canyon?
nice and eerie. I wish the numbers at the bottom were gone.
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.
unique photo. nice.
yeah the blue cast is a bit off i think. maybe prefer a warmer cast. that thing is steep as s%(t. Wow.
stunning. you should add a border.
He's got a great spotter.
you should link your photos to specific routes.
the rock highlights are a bit blown out. It's a pretty good perspective, but I'd work on the levels a bit.
beautiful. The highlights at the center could be fixed a bit. Otherwise great contrast and photo.
pretty nice. would be nice to have more emphasis on the climber.
beware of lightning. nice shot.
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.
great exposure, great focus. to be picky I don't really like all the clutter at the bottom (water bottles and such). Nice capture.
nice, but where is this?
beautiful shadow and tones. Great focus. Wish the route could be seen a bit higher.
beautiful rock. wish the climber stood out just a bit more.
wow looks rather busy. crazy rock.
good shot showing detail of rock.
this is nice.
nice pic but not enough detail in the highlights.
beautiful. the cropping seems a bit awkward though.
photo is blurry. could be a real nice shot, change levels and try to sharpen.
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.
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.
it's blurry and out of focus. looks like a great route.
yeah, fix the levels and it would be much better.
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.
blurry and out of focus.
wow, lets climb it.
This is a nice use of lens flare.
looks like a nice place to hang around.
beautiful color rock. I love sedona in the autumn. nice sharp image.
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.
yeah doesn't look behind his leg to me, but i wish the photo was a little sharper.
Nice. the limited DOF makes this a rather strong picture. Simple yet powerful. great focus, exposure, and sharp image.
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.
nice photo of the route. I wish the climber didn't blend in so much.
nice colors and exposure. looks like fun.
pretty nice photo. I think the blurring could have been a little more precise.
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.
great shot but a little blurry.
looks like the tazmanian devil.
I'll take it.
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).
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!!!
that certainly is.
beauty. I wish the climber was a little more seperated from the ground. He seems to blend in too much to his background.
this is beautiful. I agree you should tell us where this is, or link the photo though.
a pretty good shot, but you is just placed against a rock with no good perspective or composition.
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.
this is a rad shot, nice job.
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.
thomas are you still trying to get a consensus on digital or film? I bet it was digital.
Impossible? Maybe the 5.12 routes on headstone. What a great climb (sw corner)
How do you enjoy and 'offwidth'???
barn door. nice shot.
good color and exposure, the composition lacks though.
wow looks like a great crack.
and all hard climbs are good photos right? this is nice.
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.
wow the pictured rocks ice looks good right now!
ahh castle hill.
wow, the wave of the sedimentary rock layers is crazy.
beauty, and the snow isn't all blown out (overexposed)
beautiful sedona. and the mountain biking....
Wow sweet. I graduated from NMU. We never set up and tyrols across waterfalls.
nice shot. I wish the person's hand wasn't visible in the corner.
what route is this? looks rad. headed down in a couple weeks. PM me if you know the route. Thanks.
another good one.
nice. good lighting, figure placement, exposure. I dig it.
Coatimundi, hey I know what that is. I saw a couple down in Guatemala. That looks crazy.
pretty nice shot. the focus and brightness levels could be a little better.
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.
Great shot. The midtones are a little dark IMO.
Wow this photo has so much feeling. The beautiful rock, the shadows, the lines. Nice shot.
pacaya nice. Fuego is nice as well.
is this Xela in Guatemala?
nice sharp image.
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.
great lighting, and exposure.
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?
I think the blurring helps the photo, but could have been more refined to look natural.
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!!!
