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.

View this Photo
Is the subject centered?! ;) Love the reds and the "pose."

View this Photo
Interesting crop. I dig the action.

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
Perfect?

View this Photo
The composition is awesome and Jorg's pose is captivating--I love it!

View this Photo
^ hahaha. Great photo, too. I dig the expansiveness.

View this Photo
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?

View this Photo
"American Hero" comes to mind, heh.

View this Photo
Very alluring and dreamlike.

View this Photo
That perspective is marvelous--I'd love to see this in a larger size; it'd make a great wallpaper.

View this Photo
This would be fitting for an office poster.

View this Photo
:-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.

View this Photo
Great photo, love your framing, 'specially the inclusion of the belayer.

View this Photo
Ditto to that. I can hear the waves crashing, smell the ocean, and feel the breeze. Majestic.

View this Photo
We were top-roping.

View this Photo
Had the pleasure of viewing your other photos--your descriptions rock.

View this Photo
Just another guy yelling at salparadise for a (greatly) larger photo. ;)

View this 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.

View this Photo
I like the the depth of field, Neil.

View this Photo
I agree with climbsomething--awesome moment and just a great ground-up shot, but the photo-quality could be better.

View this Photo
The most highly rated profile photo isn't one.

View this Photo
Ethereal and entrancing, yet rooted by the strength of the rock.

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
^baHAHAHA!!! My god jhump's follow-up cinched it.

View this Photo
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.)

View this Photo
This is something out of a storybook.

View this Photo
This place feels so intimate and peaceful with a dash of strange nostalgy. I'd love to visit someday.

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
This is my favourite shot of yours so far. Love the contrasting subjects.

View this Photo
'Cause the photo tells us an epic, alex. And having seen Neil's other photos, the man isn't blind.

View this Photo
What an awesome name for such a beautiful route. The climber's stance compliments it well, too.

View this Photo
Moral of the story: wear a pretty shirt while climbing.

View this Photo
The image quality doesn't do the gorgeous route justice.

View this Photo
Kyoot!

View this Photo
Great shot. The storm clouds are beautiful.

View this Photo
Really digging the up-closeness.

View this Photo
I really like this photo. Shaggy's smile emanates this friendly reassurance, and I absolutely love the revealing shadow.

View this Photo
This is a nice photograph, but you should use a different method to resize your image.

View this Photo
Nice composition.

View this Photo
Great angle that gives us the climber's facial expression, along with his belayer.

View this Photo
I remember seeing your original when I first joined; dug it then, dig it now. Congratulations on the contest. =]

View this Photo
I like your framing, the space you leave for us, but the spotter's hand distracts me.

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
The lighting is just phantasmagorical, though the focusing is odd.

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
Like the liveliness it exuberates.

View this Photo
Nice composition with the mimicking of the stain.

View this Photo
Good dynamics.

View this Photo
Those glasses are h0tt!!!

View this Photo
Excellent awareness for this shot, Lee.

View this Photo
That is a beautiful climber (and photo).

View this 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.

View this Photo
Michael Jordon climbs?

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
The contrast of the rock face with the soft grass is great.

View this Photo
Well said, corpse. Magnificent photo, josh, it'd make a great poster.

View this Photo
I like the minimalism and proportions.

*just stares*

Drop. Dead. Gorgeous.

The prayer flags complete the shot.

View this Photo
Reminds us of impermanence of everything; hope no one was hurt.

View this Photo
Is that your chalk mark? :P

View this Photo
Nice tones.

View this Photo
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.

Awetastic!

View this Photo
OoOo... love the warm tones in this one.

View this Photo
Great way to frame a shot. There's so much to tell from the setting.

View this Photo
Solid shot--dig the wide-angle distortion.

View this Photo
So sleazy... I like it. :]

View this Photo
Looks like you got some chalk on your lens.

View this Photo
Beautiful shot, and a good narrative.

View this Photo
"Oh sh!t." ..hahaha... this would make a great desktop, 'specially for a Monday. I hope your buddy was alright. :]

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
I'd love to attempt to jump off that with a motorcycle (with C4 tires, of course).

View this Photo
Nice objects, though it's a pity the sun's shining the "wrong" way.

View this Photo
I like the lighting in this one, and the subtleness of the climber.

View this Photo
Sunset truly is a great time for photos... absolutely, beautifully, emotion-elicting.

View this Photo
I thought the climber on the front page looked familiar. :)

View this Photo
We have rocks in Illinois?! :-o

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
This is actually a great butt shot, but too bad the image quality isn't there.

View this Photo
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.

View this Photo
adamtd, can you change the quality to high, or resubmit it?

View this Photo
It's 3am and I just woke my roommate up--damn you! This is gonna be my desktop pic for a while. :)

View this Photo
Ditto.. I like the contrast.

View this Photo
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.

Have yet seen a more blatant buttshot for high ratings. ;) Dig how close the photographer got for intensity of that mantle (?) move.

View this Photo
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.

Absolutely gorgeous.

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. :)

View this Photo
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!

Coolness.

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.

I like how the two walls converge to the climber.
