Notice the belay hand, still on the rope. With a gri-gri no less. Now that's a good belayer !
This is a great pic. Love the way the out of focus projection oin the upper right diretcs your view to the climber. Good composition, in focus, good action.
The cams are on a sling, just happens to be slung to the left side. Can you tell I racked in a hurry ;-)
That's a nice photo, but the line does not depict Lotta Balls. LB goes up the left side of the notch in the right of the photo, then up the flake and the face/dihedral above, along the edge of the white/brown rock (center of face).
Nice photo. I find the black streak on the right a little distracting, but cropping it may ruin the nice flow from the right out the arch. Not sure.
Is that your vehicle in the background :-)
Also defines where not to have the rope while leading !
One of the best climbing photos I've seen anywhere. I too have given only one or two 10s, but this pic got one.
"What did it take -- two hours for me to lead that?"
Ahhh, the journey is the destination.....
The climb is Tiptoe, on Trash Can Rock.
So it is. Confused myself with my own pics.
Real nice pic. All focal points lead to subject, great use of depth of field, picture conveys movement, good exposure. Nice.
He's not falling directly onto the bolt, he's falling onto a piece, which blows, then the bolt. The alien will absorb some energy, even though it did not hold. The bolt alone would prevent this from being a factor 2 fall, but with the additional piece this fall may be nowhere near a factor 2 fall.
It's a neat action shot, but way too blurry for me.
Seems to me to be a way-to-enhanced butt shot.
Nice pic, captures the emotion well. I would like it better if the distracting climbers and gear at the bottom were cropped. Love the contrast between the rock and the purple top.
Kinda neat, but would like it a lot more if you cropped the washed-out sky.
Actually, if one were to be really picky, the town is Seneca Rocks, WV, not Seneca, WV. ;-)
Nah, Indonesia is in the southern hemisphere, everything is backwards there ;-)
"The rock is gneiss.... quite similar to the granite."
Well, not exactly since gneiss is a metamorphic rock and granite is igneous, but the climbing and setting look really cool. ;-)
Second that. This is just a superb pic.
Yep, Gunks, Rhododendron.
Same climb, different name, location, and rating ? Looks to me like this climb is about 20 feet high or is that just a perspective thing.
So, does Chris care that JC is down there mugging for the camera instead of watching him ?
I really like this pic. The colors are cool, and I like the way the rope and gear lead your eye directly to the subject, who is (naturally) looking at the camera, not posed.
The stuff on the ground is a minor distraction, but still a nice photo. Well done.
An "almost" shot. The composition is great, the framing is fine, the climber's face is visible, and it caught the clipping action, but it's just too overexposed. I understand the problems with shooting in the full sun/shade scenario, but this one is just not quite there. Props for the good composition and hopefully the flash will fire next time.
Hope you heart chiggers also ;-) Nice pic though.
I love the red and somewhat bloody left hand in the crack. Nice pic too. A little more face would make it almost perfect. Nice comp - the rope leads the base of the crack and the gear, which leads up to the climber, and vice vera.
Looks like a "textbook" placement to me ;-)
"My Infected Left Foot". Is that a sequel to the Daniel Day-Lewis movie ?
