Is this the same Jon Payne who has developed routes in Southern IL ? Great shot.
braaaaaaaadley is a fool. Your eye goes all over the place finding subject everywhere. Bravo.
Submit High Res.
I like the color contrast between his belly and sunburned back. trademarks of a True climber. to climbin_high: hahaha :) .... that is all.
yes, Lovely Arete is 11a. a beaut of a route. fine nine is a solid 5.9 climb that I personally scorn, though Most people really like this route. The Rest of Jackson Falls, as R&I suggests, is a chosspile so stay away. I should know- I'm down there all the time....
correction rwaltermyer: look at post 2. Besides, This picture really is of the girl. It might be a fine route, but it really isn't well defined. The rock seems like a matte serving only to frame her. It's still a great picture. She can put it in her profile when she gets addicted to climbing and begins trying to feed the monkey by posting to rc.com
"The antler's shadow is wrong". yeah, it seems like the shadow is stretched as if the antlers are convex. But the antlers are concave- wouldn't that scrunch the shadow?? almost seems like the shadow is too dark- you can't see any of the texture under the shadow. all this from the armchair critic, I couldn't do better. cool concept nonetheless.
A beautiful day like that, and you wasted it slacking... I second areyoumydude's comment.
SUNDOG = partial rainbow. (dictionary.com) Sweet pic.
downclimb. There is often an easier side of the boulder to get down than the way you got up.
I think that guy advertises the shampoo I use.
there isn't a horizon, so I guess your verizon looks crooked. I think I could cope with a little rotation action..
I think you'll understand that I like the "good versus evil" theme. I'm glad you chose to frame it this way. (*blush* I just noticed the credit. very noble of you.)
..almost as awesome as capri pants.
crashpads look so darn small when yer highballin'...
"What is the grade in northamerican scale" you mean yosemite decimal? caption says 5.12+
on the front page it looked like the tree was an extention of his 'fro.
with the blurred movement and his head thrown back and mouth agape, I can almost hear him emitting a mammoth, "argh!" I like it.
Judging by the way his left arm is twisted, he will be spinning the other way. (180, and then -180)
I had a similar job [url="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v244/mingleefu/geocities_futbol_21/watertower.jpg"]Painting a water tower[/url]. What exactly were you doing with the rope around the blade???
I never return to comments i posted on images, so I can't let myself navigate away without saying "Haha."
Equality is a falacitous tool of the hippies that was superimposed over the basic legislature of the government to impose and perpetuate the system of sexual segregation- One they make you forget the interdependance of the gender roles, they make you the victim, man.
I have many impressions from this image, but the following is the most curious to me. Why are his pants not draped on his leg?? Don't get me wrong, I think the pic is real- but what kind of nasty @ss crusty pants is he wearing that they don't drape right?? Get that boy to a laundromat!
half person and centered subject, I concur. Except that the tree looks like it is covering the problem. What is the climber looking at that is hidden by the tree? The world may never know...
I like the picture, overall. To be very critical, the climber seems to be in an awkward "I have to use the bathroom" stance. 1 sec later might have been perfect. I also don't like the part where you call your own picture "classic".
makeup, earrings, blonde highlights in her hair, smooth shaven legs...her thumb even looks post-manicure- no way she's a climber. I'm calling photoshop; she looks too good.
it was new on the day it was made in someone's garage..
social climber - just razzin' ya. you can see hints of blush on her cheeks, and you can see the white-tipped thumbnail. Not staring hard, just recognizing the art for its many elements. Kadiez - We are calling it for what it is; your looking nice is what makes it a good shot. (that and the green tones that soothe the eye around the image.)
Yo atpeaceinbozeman: it's spelled "spelled" not "spelt" and it's spelled "it's" not "its".
it's so cute when children play dress-up with big people's clothes!
Very nice. If we're allowed to critique the art, I recommend varying the density of the shaded areas. For intance, the climber's left thigh blends in with the shadow on the rock. If the shadow on the rock is supposed to be darker, then make it so. Going further to apply a deepening gradient to each individual shadow would give the art a greater sense of depth. Still, a good piece. Great to see something fresh on the site!
who stole his nipples?
it's possible that the camera *is* level, but the horizon is crooked (looks like a mountain ridge out there)
does the route zig-zag, or is the belayer's position making the rope drag worse?
...but it'd still be blurry.
not a smile. it's actually a grimace. Her face actually looks pretty funny when I flip my laptop upside down.
10?? you're kidding! Great effort, but the photo SuX0r. If I cared any more, I'd bomb the rating. But I don't. Cool climb, anyway (I imagine).
is there a little PS blurring going on here? no accusations, just questions. Good pic in any case.
I second Curtis_g's request for Hi-Res.
neat idea, but the image quality is very poor. Have you tried making this B/W? might hide your blurry backside...
Fine 9 has an obvious seam/crack that crosses the bolt line, and would be immediately behind the climber in this picture. Looks like he is on the crux traverse move of hidden treasure here. It's not half as slabby as it looks.
So they were more efficient and hygenic as well as better financial and preparedness planners? Those fools! Haha. Nice pic. (edit: this responds to coldclimb's comment, which oddly appears below.)
sweet pic. Do you mind my asking why you don't rotate it 90deg CW? I had to think twice about what was going on in the picture, but since you've got so many other great images, I assume you've thought of this.
five bucks says that nut won't fit. try the other one.
2 biners on one hanger?
"yeah, hey, listen... I know you're belaying and all, but would you mind taking about 40 steps back, just for this one picture?"
what's the V-rating on that hog?
..or the sand eventually the rock..
pretty blank for a trad route. Look at that loop of slack! you can almost hear his controlled, focusing exhale. Climb on, Sandeep.
they fit better in that size crack...if you can stand the pain.
maybe it was an outward.
the framing is a bit tight, but neglecting to include the crack would be worse than cropping out his foot. neat pic.
the fisheye is confusing as heck. I had to think too hard to see what was going on with each of the 8 people and 5 crashpads. I want to say also that it seems like the apex of the fisheye effect is not where one would expect it to be. Overall, I just don't like this pic- but thats just one obscure random guy's opinion. Looks like it might have been a fun day though.
did you PS the pad, or did you pull it before you took the shot? It's a beaut, either way
"Overhangs about 40' in 90-100 feet of climbing" That's 30 degrees over hung.
