Nice picture, keep up the good photography!
Nice. I am jealous of all you big wall climbers, aid or free. But I am not jealous of those extra large sacks of shiz you gotta haul to the top.
Nice looking climb... I need to get to Yosemite.
I think all Tim really did lighting-wise was fill Angie with the softbox. The reason it looks a little strange is that instead of the fill being slightly darker than the rest of the scene, it is brighter in this instance. It certainly gives an unusual look... not natural at all. But I personally like it.. Sounds like this was probably the effect he was looking for.
The cries of "FAKE" and "wait for the light" are a little misinformed I think. The depth of field is not due to a double exposure, or any photoshop tricks, thats the tilt shift lens at work. As far as the exposure issues go, this image is a little truer to what your eye would see than a standard exposure in which the sky would be washed out. If we had 16 bit, or 24 bit sensors would everything taken with them be labeled "FAKE" too since they would record roughly the same dynamic range that Tim's double exposure does? No photograph is an accurate record of reality, so wtf should it be a big deal, especially when he is upfront about it being a composite image? I agree with getoutmore... it lookes like a scale model somehow. It certainly adds some additional interest.
Nice photo. Was the pushed Velvia a choice, or is that the only film you had with you? A little too contrasty for my taste...
I like it! Is it film? Details?
Nice photo. Interesting to include the belayer... Photographically, I like it but you need to do something about the blown highlights on his back. Have to bring the exposure down, maybe fill flash on the climber? A reflector? Pretty sick line. I gotta get to Indian Creek... its not even that far from me (Boise, ID).
I like the motion blur with the right hand and rock remaining sharp. Might be a better picture if we could see what you're reaching for. PS - I remember you! I used to climb at Nampa Rec with Paul and Cody...
I like it. My only gripe is that there isn't alot of interaction between landscape and climber. They don't really relate. Still... 5/5
Looks amazing. I was just in Banff/Canmore last summer. I WANT TO GO BACK!!!!
