4 out of 5 stars Perhaps, if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all. It will get rated what it gets rated, I don't think you're changing any opinions by tearing down everyone else's high ratings. For me, it's an 8. I think the soft focus and water on the lens helps to capture what the environment dealt them on their climb, I feel like I'm there.

4 out of 5 stars Nice pic. I like the perspective from the cornfields, it makes it feel even more amazing contrasted with the ordinary farmland.

True, a lot more chalk below than above. I love all of your pics, bobd, keep 'em coming!

View this Photo
If that's an FA, why is there so much chalk? Just wondering.

4 out of 5 stars I'll never get tired of your awesome shots! Keep it up, man!

4 out of 5 stars Cool perspective, I like it, you see the climber, his pro, the crack, and the sky. Nice pic!

4 out of 5 stars I agree. Cool Pic, I like the angle a lot, I see the entire line, right down to the belayer.

Was his name Kevin? That looks a lot like one of my friends who went to that comp!

Wait! That's trad!?! Doesn't look like there is any easy/good pro!

Very hardcore, Bob! Props on all of your pictures. If I was around back then and someone introduced me to climbing as it was, I doubt I'd be a climber today!

4 out of 5 stars Wow, amazing!

Isn't Team Jesus a slab climb??

Nope, this is the Contortionist, 5.9

3 out of 5 stars I like it, but using a shorter depth of field to draw more attention to the action would definitely boost the picture! I like the B&W as well, it really gives a cool atmosphere! Whoever gave this a 3 wasn't being fair. Good use of the rule of thirds, but there is a little too much drawing away from the climber... like I said sharper depth of field, with focus on the action more than the scree in the background.

4 out of 5 stars climbing or not, a great photo, thanks for sharing it! I agree with the slanted horizon comment, but I love the color so much! Good job.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I disagree with the comment about the head chopping, I like the framing, it draws the focus away from the climber and more into the movement and determination. Great shot!

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I like it too! I like the character of the photo.

3 out of 5 stars That's a great route! It was my first 11 onsight as well! Way to go!

4 out of 5 stars Yeah Laban! Lookin strong! It was good to see you last weekend! We'll be back soon.

Haha, you know it! See, it's best to wait until after climbing to drink, but when you're fishing, you can drink the whole day!

3 out of 5 stars Cool! I like the perspective.

3 out of 5 stars That does look like a sweet line!

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars great pic! I love the 'down the cliffline' perspective! Nice DOF! You think it's getting too warm for Sauratown?

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars Yeah Gallatin Canyon! Maybe next time I'm out there I'll actually get to climb!

4 out of 5 stars good to see more orangeoverhang pics!

i'm thinking metolius21, cacti-tro, and cmacblue42 are all the same person. Climbing shoes can excel in one type of climbing, but should be suitable for anything. Example: Cobras from La Sportiva are performance slippers for overhanging and bouldering but I've climbed super technical slab in them as well. Thank you for your informed opinion, coldclimb.

I've done it without anything near that big, but I guess it might've helped!

high res please!

Another vote for higher res! Cool pic!

4 out of 5 stars Wow, what exposure! Great shot!

So hot...

the blur is a bit too much for me, but awesome action.

3 out of 5 stars I'd agree, the URL on the pic trend is ruining the pics on RC.com

4 out of 5 stars I thought the .13b bolted route goes to the right after exiting the pod?

View this Photo
Nice and soft, pleasing to the eye, then BAM www.starkphotos.com 2005... another one sacrificed to the copyright gods.

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars i like the angle, focuses more on the action and the climber than the problem itself, but i agree, the guy in the bottom right corner is distracting...

View this Photo
but his face is blurry, and the framing is confusing, not a bad shot, but not a good one either...

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars so is the ugly white url...

View this Photo
4 out of 5 stars I agree, a bit brighter and you'd really have something! That said, great looking crack and nice shot.

Third pitch! Wow, you really broke it up. When I did it it was barely two.

4 out of 5 stars The obligatory chalked holds, where do you go next comment...

Awesome

Gotta ask the guys who we met up with, Nate and Doug. Two of the nicest guys I've run into. They spent the next night at the hanging belay two pitches higher, perhaps it was easier to setup the ledge here then haul it up to there?

4 out of 5 stars I like the shadow at the bottom!

4 out of 5 stars Is that artificial DOF? Or all the lens? Either way, well done, very cool shot.

I can definitely see a two page spread, with title and text on the left and a column of text on the right page. Very cool. Thanks for the insight, a look into what you were trying to do.

I do like the shadow. I've noticed a lot of times I wish I could crop the climber out of a shadow photo.

5 out of 5 stars Robster, obviously you've never actually seen this climb. I thought everyone had seen return2sender.

If you make it free to this point on this pitch, believe me, your harness riding up a bit is the least of your concerns! Talk about insecure!
