3 out of 5 stars Tough crowd, microbarn...I thought the same thing looking at the background, but the climbing seems to be in focus. At this super short focal length everything should be in focus...well, with a good lens the depth of field would be huge. I would guess this is more of a limitation of the camera then sloppy camera work. And I would bet the camera in question is an auto focus all the time.

Oh, come one...just uploaded this for my profile picture. I have better picts of other people, but I kind of like climbing rather they taking picts of climbing.

5 out of 5 stars I like the play of similar textures from the rock, tat, and pad cover. It would be nice to see more of the lower body, mainly see what the feet are doing...clearly a trade of through...great shot.

5 out of 5 stars The light is a little low, I think even 30 mins earlier the sun would give better light on the rock and a prettier sky. Try again in late spring, a green tree and, as others have said, a more colorful shirt. The whole shot just looks washed out. I took to photoshop and made b&w almost couldn't tell a difference.

It could be a good black and white, but only with a tighter detailed crop on the climbing...perhaps you could take raw and play with some filters, a red filter might make a difference.

I assume the God of Climbing pictures, other Gods are busy with old testament style wrath and the destruction of modern civilization.

Yeah I have to ask the same, what was the belayer doing. That was like a 6 foot length to the last protection, then a 20 foot fall after that...did it rip out that top protection?

Is that a last for a 35 foot climbing shoe?

That is a hard shot to get anyway. Getting some direct sun, light through water, overhung route, actual water, using flash. Actually looks like a miracle you got this good a shot.

That is pretty hard core with the thong action.

Yeah great shot, from the climbing side of things...your belay anchor himself and how do you get back down...just a swap penalty if you don't make it.

Deep water solo is for punks, this is the next big thing, shallow water swamp climbing.

Mangiari, your copy-writing skills truly suck. Are you saying that the "your" is, for instance is my sucky photo and not Simon's.

Great shot, gotta love two wide apart little crimps to dyno off of.

5 out of 5 stars Little photoshop? Could you post the specs on that photo you took, ie the EXIF data. PM me you want. There is alot about that photo i like...I am getting little tired of the over saturated "Simon" shots. You photography is a breath of fresh air. I can relate to this stuff, not the DWS and epic sunset monster wall stuff.

"Back Clip", that isn't a back clip...didn't put the spine in the correct direction...from our perspective. I would rather make that last draw he clipped a little longer.

3 out of 5 stars That route is as sick as those forearms.

Could use a little more focusing, good action though.

Should rotate the picture, not giving him credit for how inclined that route, is based on how the draws are hanging.

If you are going to take the time to get shots like this, which is a day/week long endeavor, why bother unless you are photographing the truly exceptional.

5 out of 5 stars Adding a little more...don't get me wrong, this is a great photo I gave it 5 stars. It has a great weight, The skin tone is very gritty different and thick texture. There is a definite solid feel to the hand possition....and I would like to see the entire hand and what it up to the right.

5 out of 5 stars i don't know what people are talking about here, the back is a beautiful form, but from "beautifully muscled back" perspective, it is just a back. The exceptional part of this climber and consequently the photo is the forearms. Nude forms of the back wither photo, drawing or painting have been done a million time, in art school they always preach that the female back is the most beautiful form in figure drawing. So from this perspective the lighting is not done well on the models back...may be a soft fill light or a slight differing angle of the main light would bring out the back more, it that was the point...I think the point was the arm and that was done very well.

Love the back up, GLOVE. Single line rappel with a ATC and swiss seat, nice. I think that crap he is taking got stuck in his pants.

Wouldn't it be more fun to lead that route? Why not go to the top.

Like the shoot, make my tips hurt.

Pure snow, do you realize the street value of this mountain?

noob question, how did they/do you get back up to the roof after doing this. Aide with a tibloc or prusik.

I agree for a gym shot, this is a good shot and looks like a fun route.

I can understand wanting to "get close" spotting a girl, but how about some discretion for the photo.

Nice shot, there last weekend...that point of the route is the business. I left with the same result on lavendar, will be mine next trip.
