i have GOT to get to australia one of these days. neil, you are a badass. keep on shootin!

View this Photo
nice! this shot is different from all the others you see of this much photographed route. is it from a digital? the edges seem really crisp and not as "lossy" as a scan. i can't believe i haven't done this route yet!

hi brad. you could've improved this photo by orienting it vertically instead of horiz. that way the climbers wouldn't be so near the edge. also, slide film would've boosted the colors. the outrage wall looks incredible. just thot i'd critique since you did that same for me. thx!

View this Photo
i can sympathize with the scanner blues. you've got a lot of really good shots, db. in fact, when i was looking at your photos i pretty much decided that i am FOR SURE going to australia this winter. keep shootin, tex...

moroneyk, is this a medium format shot or did you crop it square?

View this Photo
khan, the dof is not photoshopped. i used a 70-300mm fully zoomed. realistic looking dof is really hard to pull off in photoshop since you must "gradiate" the blur.

3 out of 5 stars i love how everyone on this site rates pretty much <i>any</i> sunset photo a ten; a posed, non-climbing shot with zero thought put into it no less. sorry if i'm harsh, it's just one opinion.

digital capture? wish my shots were this sharp.

a fill flash would've helped here but still a great shot. this shot has not been overdone, at least i've not seen many. you are causing me to seriously consider saving up for a digital SLR. damn you.

ditto the above comments. i would try blurring using a selected and feathered area as opposed to using the blur or a brush tool. this will make the blur more gradual and mimic the tilt-shift effect you're going for. this is a cool photo, you should re-work it.
