5 out of 5 stars My elbow was hurting a lot at that day, so i ended up shooting pictures and chewing painkillers all day.
Thanks for the encouraging comments guys...

3 out of 5 stars The north wall route follows the prominent crack/chimney system in the middle of the wall going from right to left. Barely visible in the picture the crescent shaped overhang is the crux pitch.
The ridge infront of the north wall is the north ridge, and goes at IV+.

5 out of 5 stars Commenting my own photograph, I love the weird space warped look in this photo...

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars Err... because it is not a boulder ;-) Seriously, the part visible on the picture is the lower half (and crux) of the route, and I wouldnt want to fall/jump even from up there. There is an easier (VII+) route on the right sharing the same belay.

Most probably stuffed deep in the pack, huh. The snow was thigh deep, but stable, so it was more secure than it looks like. It was tiring as you might expect though.

4 out of 5 stars heh heh, since I prefer nuts over cams, most probably you will get nuts rather than cams from me.
Hmm, I have left so far 1 hex, 2 stoppers, scattered over <a href="http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos.php?Action=Show&PhotoID=14617">aladaglar</a>.
On top of that, I had to cut at least 3 stuck ropes (no time/experience to lead up), as well as one of my best works is a stuck ice axe belay, where I lost 2 axes while bailing from a glacier, where we were left with only a technical tool between two of us and two pieces of 6 meter ropes. Good times... good times.....

5 out of 5 stars I like your single-climber-cranking-hard-in-a-beautiful-setting shots. What about the other climbers, how do you keep them out of your frame? It is hard to keep them out here in US

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars poser or not, the texture of the rock and his hand meld into each other, the lighting is beautiful, and it is a good composition...

View this Photo
just reframe the picture in photshop, this is a good shot but ruined by the date

4 out of 5 stars This sequencing is a lot better than your other try. I agree with maculated, fading is a nice touch.

5 out of 5 stars I am still laughing

4 out of 5 stars camhead, he is wearing the same helmet I have, camp brenta, unfortunatelly it looks pretty much like a construction helmet. Even the color is the same, yeah. My excuse is, I found it dirt cheap.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Satan ramp is avalance prune and there is a large amount of stone fall directly above it from the 'Horguc Kaya' (humped rock left to the summit)
One alternative route minimizing time spend in the crossfire follows the couloir left to it, the route is known as 'Nesrin Topkapi'. Still following this route requires passing two avalance prune slopes. Another longer alternative follows the left ridge entering somewhere suitable from the far left side.

View this Photo
1 out of 5 stars slow exposure and unfocusing camera ruining a nice shot....

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars Half of the picture is uninteresting sky. I would crop the upper part of the picture (and maybe a little from the bottom as well) and try to make it more interesting (rule of thirds stuff).

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars this is so funny....

View this Photo
one split second later, you would get a killer action

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars the reason it looks unnatural is that things within the same depth have different focusing in the picture, which is disturbing. I agree it is an artistic choice, but I would prefer a less visible approach. Nice darkroomwork though, woaw.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars it looks photoshoped to me, somewhat unnatural focusing....

5 out of 5 stars heh heh, yes it is... I have no idea why the platform is there, it might be there since the roadwork.

View this Photo
nice action... I would crop the picture such that he is not in the dead center, which is killing the picture

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars This one is an unusual shot from you Jörg, since we can see the belayer even he is out of focus. I liked that he is looking to the climber and the rope that connects them in the picture. Nice work

I keep voting 10, but the system doesnt allow me to vote more than once.... it is a shame.... very nice work

4 out of 5 stars very nice framing, and beautiful timing where his right arm and left leg align with the rope....

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Soft focus and warm colors, it is a very pleasing shot. LOL. very nice work indeed

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I think this one is the best among the series, because of the reach and the facial exposure. Again we have the toprope effect i mentioned <a href="http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos.php?Action=Show&PhotoID=16737">here</a>. Your position in the picture is deadcenter, I would crop from one side and from the top to get be better framing.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars unfortunatelly the rope on the next route makes it look like you are on toprope

View this Photo
if only it wasnt a night shot!... His pose perfectly aligns with the curvature of the boulder, very nice timing indeed

View this Photo
excellent shadows.... its a shame you didnt get good exposure. It would have been great, with nice saturated colors, and both of them leading <p>btw, I am not the one who gave 1

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars nice symmetry in the body positions, great timing. some more contrast in the image would be great, it looks too much "gray"

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I would cut most of the upper empty space to get a panaroma format. Otherwise, it looks like a dream, beautiful. If I were you, I would clean those 3-4 dirty spots, this image deserves it
<p>Edit: this one is better, thanks, it is really a beautiful shot

View this Photo
1 out of 5 stars if you cut people from the waist in the picture, they will look like they are standing on the ground and just posing...

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars it looks like he gave up dealing with the rope halfway up and untied and continued, lol ;-)

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars reminds me of a heinz zak picture i saw on a calender years ago.

4 out of 5 stars Every climber can relate to her knowing the feeling of "one more inch, please, one more inch". Excellent pose, very nice timing indeed

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars please edit and resubmit. Except the ghost second head it is a very nice pic

View this Photo
is this one also stiched like your <a href="http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos.php?Action=Show&PhotoID=17437">other</a> shot? Just wondering.... me likey panaromas, keep them coming. It would have been better if the guy was wearing something colorful like in <a href="http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos.php?ArchiveID=ALL&Photographer=climbnow1">jörgs photos</a>.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars very nice timing, excellent facial exposure.... But it feels like it was rotated CCW 90 degrees, am I right or just confused ?

View this Photo
very nice composition. I like the strong lighting on his left side. The image can use some more contrast though.

View this Photo
too bad the colors are washedout. maybe if you convert to bw it will look better ?? If he was looking up it will be a very strong pic, currently his tophead is not that interesting

View this Photo
if you shoot this pic one splitsecond before he hit the dyno, it would have been a great shot.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars small, but a very pleasing shot.

View this Photo
it is a nice shot, and definetely deserves a better scan. The background is really good, maybe cropping a little from right will make the frame more interesting as well as the toprope less distractive. It would have been nice if we could see the cams.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars If the climber weared something colorful, than this will be a perfect pic

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars woaw, this is a very beautiful place. I would like to see more of the belayer. Or not at all. Partial view is just confusing. I would also frame such that the climber is not in the center, cropping from the right side.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars very nice... Climber and belayer and the rope are all the same color very different from the rock itself. My eye keeps wandering from the belayer following the rope to the climber and back. I like the 90 degree turn of the rope. Except maybe better light/time of day, my only complaint will be a little more space from the belayer to the bottom frame. Still a very strong pic!

View this Photo
Just like <a href="http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos.php?Action=Show&PhotoID=16976">here</a> the contrast between the rock color and human skin is excellent. I agree w/ gretchino, it is very nice framing.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars if it was 10 before, what is it now.... excellent
(note to self: next time instead of the visitors visa, apply for immigration to canada, heh heh)

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I guess the story of this image ended pretty good. The watercolorish canvasish look is really working for this image. Nice timing on the action as well.

View this Photo
kudos... Excellent pic. Very nice framing. I could not decide on the belayer, it looks like he needs some more space in the frame, but than all ground junk will be in the picture. Probably what is here is the best solution. The dark cave on the right is somewhat unbalanced, but also breaks the monotony. Overall, I like it very much, I would like to see it larger.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars i want that. Now everybody please leave, i want to be alone with this picture.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars reminds me of <a href="http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos.php?Action=Show&PhotoID=15067">this</a> one, which is 100 times more interesting because of the 'moment'.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars it is really nice 'graphically'. I know that it is rotated, but somehow the climber looks correctly oriented, and I keep turning my head back and forth. I like overexposed right side background, but the upper right is somewhat disturbing, my eye gets stuck there. Also some more exposure on the climber will contrast him from the rock, he is too lost in the wall.

View this Photo
I would prefer the image 90 degrees CW rotated, it would be easier to read

View this Photo
you mean <a href="http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos.php?Action=Show&PhotoID=17480">this</a> picture.

View this Photo
Jörg, I can see from all your pictures that you do not like belayers in the pictures. On the other hand unless somebody is soloing or the image is a closeup, I enjoy seeing the belayer because my eyes tend to follow the rope in search for something.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars socks and the climbing shoes give the image a 70s look. Maybe you should have submitted as B/W, heh heh

View this Photo
2 out of 5 stars the climber is lost in black/red. We know that she is climbing from the original photographs, but by only looking this image is not obvoius that she is climbing. Maybe a dangling shot would have worked better, i dont know. Maybe because the original images are so beautiful I didnt like this, but hey its a good try...

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars The look on her face is priceless. There isnt much space under her foot in the frame, which makes it look like she is very close to the ground.

View this Photo
this is a nice picture. The trees on the ground are somewhat confusing to the eye, I wander around searching for something. I like the belayer-climber action, but somehow they do not seem to get enough attention, and I keep wandering around. Maybe a horizontal framing would worked better. A little sharpness would help too.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars nice action, but needs more (and more) contrast

View this Photo
very nice action, but like the other photograph, needs more contrast.... something black you know... I would either include the belayer or crop him as whole.

View this Photo
too much centered, killing the action. Since he is looking and reaching to the right, the photo needs some more space on the right

View this Photo
I assume that it is edited, since the borders of the moon are really sharp. The background not pure dark, but rather blue, making it really really hard to shoot with multiple exposure. I would crop from the right side, since the climber is too centered for my taste.

View this Photo
lol ;-)

View this Photo
yamanc, this image is not the "exact" moment for you, it is the "exact" same place. On the other hand, the importance of the picture for me is that it is both the place and time, I mean 3D vs 4D. <img src="http://www.rockclimbing.com/forums/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif">

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars it is a great shot, but again you missed the face... also some more contrast, it is too much in the gray zone.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars if he was looking up, than this would have been a great shot. Also you can use some contrast in the picture too...

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars they are sooo beautiful... I will go there... sometime.... yeah, i will do that....

View this Photo
I like that his whole body is in focus but his hand is blurred. It feels like he is frozen midair. Excellent timing....

View this Photo
is somebody standing on top ?

View this Photo
i guess it would have worked better if they didnt overlap that much. This makes a very crowded photo, lol

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars very nice... I would have prefered the climber higher on the crack, it would make a better frame, as well as we could see more of his facial features...

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars excellent.... nice timing, as well as very good use of depth of field

View this Photo
it is beautiful framing, i wish it had more saturation and contrast....

View this Photo
I tried to clean all the seams from the stiching. They were all vertical, and very distracting. I overloaded a blurred/zoomed version on top of it, trying to clean and give some soft changes. I could just paste uniform color as well, but I dont think that would have made a better picture.

View this Photo
5 out of 5 stars woaw, pushprocess really brought nice colors. plus another great use of tight depthoffield, very nice work indeed

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars i would have moved the frame a bit to the right to make a more dynamic composition.

4 out of 5 stars ropedraaaaag.... nice pic

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars are they 3 bolts next to each other ? how bad was the rope drag after ?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars lol ;-)

View this Photo
it is a very different framing than most of the pictures, but it works here. There is barely enough clues in the picture, but somehow it is enough. Focus on the hold, partial face of the climber, even the finger tips of the spotter. It is really pleasing, very nice work.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars is it a star up there? niceee... You shoud use lower compression, I can see the blocky artifacts...

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars i remember reading about the first ascent, where doug scott et. al. doesnt climb to the highest point with respect, but what about the latter ascents? I cannot think that everybody was that kind...

4 out of 5 stars dramatic light, very cool

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars a split second before, it would have been a better pic. Since he reached the other side, and holding, all the tension is gone....

View this Photo
2 out of 5 stars that would be a BIG penalty...

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars lol, I would crop from the right side, there is nothing there

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars i think it rejects outliers, eg if your points are 8,7,1 it rejects 1 and gives 7.5 average grade.... i guess...

4 out of 5 stars I looks like a studio lighting, very nice work

3 out of 5 stars I hate the red caption

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars greaat depth, amazing....

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars I would have left only the climber in color

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars i think it is almost a great image. You got a perfect light, an excellent work imho. Maybe crop a little from the bottom frame, but i am not that strong on that. The only problem is timing. The spotter is perfect, but the climbers pose is not that great. It kills your image, he looks like just hanging, dangling there, and large shorts does not help either. If he had a tighter pants, showing a better silhuette, and if he had at least one of his feet extended and touching the rock, that would be a great image, even would go straight to the top ten.

View this Photo
Please correct the artifacts, by cropping from the top and deleting the timestamp. While you were there, I would crop from the right side as well, placing the climber to the right 1/3rd or the frame.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars nice.... I think if you had shot a second before, while the nut is still out of the crack, that would have been a better photo.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I would have cropped the picture from both sides, to make a tighter framing.

View this Photo
3 out of 5 stars for starters, it is most probably triple digit temperature combined w/ 99 percent humidity. Second, eventhough I have not seen the route, my guess is that it ends just above the frame. Here in texas, we call 4 bolt routes as "endurance route", heh heh

thanks for the encouraging comments. this is actually my fourth process on the image, the first three were either dull, or not much exciting, but i like the feeling on the this one. Everytime i was not satisfied and felt that i could do a better job and started from scratch. harrisha, it is funny that you mentioned ansel, because i just finished his book (both negative and print) before processing this image, so i was clearly inspired by his style. joe, this is the first time i used framing, i usually dont like borders either. But I felt that it created a closed frame, which enchanced the dark contrast of the image, which was creating too much visual contrast when put on plain white screen space.

4 out of 5 stars merock, your image needs to fit not only the width and height, but also size restrictions. Otherwise it is recompressed by the rc.com magic code, and you see the results. It is a recurring problem, many of the recent submissions got caught by the evil resizing-code.

I agree with you calvin_jay, visually she is too close to the pad, and overlaps with the shadow of the background rocks, and I would have prefered a cleaner distribution of visual elements... That is said, I do think that spotter, and/or belayer is part of the climbing, and like to acknowledge/include them in some of the pictures.

5 out of 5 stars and what did you use for this shot? Nice narrow DOF, but i do not think you will get this sharpness at 1.4, or do you? Tripod for extra sharpness? Your last batch is beyond sharp, lovely...
