Amazing, just amazing.
Framing is almost there: I like how the face is cropped, emphasizing the intensity, but the spotter's hand is pulls you out of the image. Nonetheless, it's a great photograph, and I'm using it as my background.
Is the subject centered?! ;) Love the reds and the "pose."
Interesting crop. I dig the action.
Echoing johnnyk and organic, but those rocks are incredible! Your composition and Tim's shirt are great, too. The rock is so fascinating; rolling and billowing up the photo.
The composition is awesome and Jorg's pose is captivating--I love it!
^ hahaha. Great photo, too. I dig the expansiveness.
Wow! Just amazing... and I'm sure you guys have no trouble gettin' chicks back to your dorm. :)
Love to have this as a poster up in my room. Anyone else strangely attracted to that ponytail suspended in mid-motion?
"American Hero" comes to mind, heh.
Very alluring and dreamlike.
That perspective is marvelous--I'd love to see this in a larger size; it'd make a great wallpaper.
This would be fitting for an office poster.
:-O View more photos! View more photos! ;)
Ever heard of insurance?
I dig the subject a lot as I'm a nocturnal creature, but the composition could be a bit stronger. While you can't do anything about it, there's too much space between the moon and the boulderers. Also, it's "too stable" for my liking. However, mood-wise, I really like this.
Great photo, love your framing, 'specially the inclusion of the belayer.
Ditto to that. I can hear the waves crashing, smell the ocean, and feel the breeze. Majestic.
We were top-roping.
Had the pleasure of viewing your other photos--your descriptions rock.
Just another guy yelling at salparadise for a (greatly) larger photo. ;)
I love shots of shots. :) Even if I didn't, this photo would still be great. The three ppl are all engaging, the background is interesting, and the blues are cool and lovely.
I like the the depth of field, Neil.
I agree with climbsomething--awesome moment and just a great ground-up shot, but the photo-quality could be better.
The most highly rated profile photo isn't one.
Ethereal and entrancing, yet rooted by the strength of the rock.
How did it take so long for me to see this one? And who are the critics to voted this one any less than a ten? Marty, in your body of magnificent work, this one, however hard, definitely stands as one of the best shots.
^baHAHAHA!!! My god jhump's follow-up cinched it.
So lush, indeed. My only quibble would be the rope in the foreground. Everything else excellent, the pose is classic, the sun coming in majestic and warm, and the depth of field gives sharpness and detail to everything.

Great timing and angle. There's a good sense of height, and I dig the view of Kowloon in the background. (Though the air quality of HK is another matter.)
This is something out of a storybook.
This place feels so intimate and peaceful with a dash of strange nostalgy. I'd love to visit someday.
Can't say it better than manacubus, or j_ung. Your angle and choice of lens are superb. And on another note, Malcolm Matheson is one badass m-f'er.
When I first saw this on the front page, I thought Blair was climbing a dam. The shot is a bit out of focus, but the subject is just amazing. I love the bridge in the background 'cause it gives us a sense of grandeur. This could easily be a full-page ad.
This is my favourite shot of yours so far. Love the contrasting subjects.
'Cause the photo tells us an epic, alex. And having seen Neil's other photos, the man isn't blind.
What an awesome name for such a beautiful route. The climber's stance compliments it well, too.
Moral of the story: wear a pretty shirt while climbing.
The image quality doesn't do the gorgeous route justice.
Great shot. The storm clouds are beautiful.
Really digging the up-closeness.
I really like this photo. Shaggy's smile emanates this friendly reassurance, and I absolutely love the revealing shadow.
This is a nice photograph, but you should use a different method to resize your image.
Great angle that gives us the climber's facial expression, along with his belayer.
I remember seeing your original when I first joined; dug it then, dig it now. Congratulations on the contest. =]
I like your framing, the space you leave for us, but the spotter's hand distracts me.
The colors are a bit funky, and the bottom's scrunched, but I like photo for the multiple climbers. They each tell a separate story, but are all weaved together by the rope.
The lighting is just phantasmagorical, though the focusing is odd.
Decent lighting, but the framing could've been better.
Check out an <a href="http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos.php?Action=Show&PhotoID=14293">older photo</a>--feels weird when you view both.
Loving the plaid and "boots." Photo does a good job giving a cramped feeling.
Like the liveliness it exuberates.
Nice composition with the mimicking of the stain.
Those glasses are h0tt!!!
Excellent awareness for this shot, Lee.
That is a beautiful climber (and photo).
Coldclimb, there's a difference between an untouched photo that looks subpar and an edited one that still looks subpar. Our reactions are of the latter.
Michael Jordon climbs?
Fantastic photo. You have a great angle and I the mixed lighting. Scouse's stance is just incredible. Seems like with the warm weather, everyone's out climbing and taking beautiful shots.
The contrast of the rock face with the soft grass is great.
Well said, corpse. Magnificent photo, josh, it'd make a great poster.
I like the minimalism and proportions.
Drop. Dead. Gorgeous.
The prayer flags complete the shot.
Reminds us of impermanence of everything; hope no one was hurt.
Is that your chalk mark? :P
The ominous sphere completes the shot.
If you're talking about rwaltermyer's comment, I'd hardly call that negative.
This could've been a successor to "<a href="http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos.php?Action=Show&PhotoID=5211" title="RC.com - Photos - Spicy Fish Soup by climberwill">Spicy Fish Soup</a>" if it wasn't for the head in the foreground.
OoOo... love the warm tones in this one.
Great way to frame a shot. There's so much to tell from the setting.
Solid shot--dig the wide-angle distortion.
So sleazy... I like it. :]
Looks like you got some chalk on your lens.
Beautiful shot, and a good narrative.
"Oh sh!t." ..hahaha... this would make a great desktop, 'specially for a Monday. I hope your buddy was alright. :]
haha@j_ung... I'd never get sick of oogling it.
When you flex for photos, you gotta make it seem like you're not.
I'd love to attempt to jump off that with a motorcycle (with C4 tires, of course).
Nice objects, though it's a pity the sun's shining the "wrong" way.
I like the lighting in this one, and the subtleness of the climber.
Sunset truly is a great time for photos... absolutely, beautifully, emotion-elicting.
I thought the climber on the front page looked familiar. :)
We have rocks in Illinois?! :-o
Haha... *pinches nose* Technically, you should've take n the picture at a slightly different angle so that your soiled undies would stand out against the snow rather than the grey rock.
This is actually a great butt shot, but too bad the image quality isn't there.
saperl, this photo is absolutely gorgeous. I love your angle, and how the light and shadows smooth over the rock. Keep that negative safe, 'cause I'll be asking you for a print in two months.
adamtd, can you change the quality to high, or resubmit it?
It's 3am and I just woke my roommate up--damn you! This is gonna be my desktop pic for a while. :)
Ditto.. I like the contrast.
Great look-back-and-enjoy-the-view shot with the cute girl completing everything. ;)
This a Metolius ad, Merrick? ;) Solid shot, dig the shadows of the leaves.
I can see that, polar.
The lighting and sharpness amaze me.
This is <a href="http://oac.uchicago.edu/climbing/harborwall/harborwall.html" title="UChicago OAC: Bouldering at Harbor Wall">UChicago</a>, right?
Have yet seen a more blatant buttshot for high ratings. ;) Dig how close the photographer got for intensity of that mantle (?) move.
Damn that looks like heaps of fun. Where you guys are is so unreal.
^ NOTHING could say it better.
This perspective is awesome.
Came straight from a fantasy illustration.
One of the better Photoshop jobs.
This reminds me of The Beach so much.
That's a tempting overhang. Good photo, too.
How old's the photo?
So much fun.
Ain't that true, Turtle? And it's nice to see "stupidboulderer" live up to his name. ;)
<i>brilliant photo. the aussie photo posse CRUSHES.</i><br />No kidding, joe. Absolutely fanastatic.
Nice angle, dig the inclusion of the watching climbers.
Great doodle. :)
I dislike the fact that the image isn't big enough to grace my desktop. ;)
I think this tops all home woodies (if this located at a house, that is).
rendog, right above the climber's head.
beachgirl, this is an absolutely stunning shot. I love its subtle mood.
The best buttshot there'll ever be. :P
So raw... I love it.
Like the composition and colors.
Pity about the size, but I totally understand. Def one of the top photos here. Beautifully composed, nice tones, and a mind-boggling subject.
Those troublesome trundlers!
I have no clue what's going on, but it seems as if the rescuer's diving into the heat of Hell.
drrock, I thought you were thinking of the climbing from "For Your Eyes Only" for a second.
I think sfumato's the word here.
Reminds me of the <a href="http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos.php?Action=Show&PhotoID=21974">large bird and tiny climber</a>.
Love the sparseness that the fog and rack emphasize.
(The <a href="http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos.php?Action=Show&PhotoID=34392" title="RC.com Photos - The greatest fall of them all.">older photo</a> thewyseclimber mentioned.)
I like how the two walls converge to the climber.
