Thanks guys! I caught this on my last day of vacation in Colorado. Given that the guy was a smidge occupied as he was climbing, I wasn't going to ask him to change his shirt. :D

I liked it when I got it and I'm glad that the rest of you enjoyed it! Thank you for the kind words!

Woot! 5th, heh. Garden of the Gods is a cool place. It was nice of that guy to wear an orange shirt to blend in with the rock.

=)

Oooh... where'd you find the little toy person to put on the rock? ;-P

One of the best in this challenge. Hope it ribbons for you!

Nice framing and use of thirds. Putting the guy at the top shows he has a long way to go. 8

Neat! Bet you wished he wasn't wearing a matching shirt to the rock! Top ten?

great shot. nice comp. good colors (too bad the shirt blends in so much, but I'm sure that was out of your control. 7 from me.

looks a little blurry, but excellent composition

Nicely composed, love the angle this is taken from and how the blue jeans pop out of the rock. You got an 8 from me, want to see this ribbon.

Looks risky to me...I wish the climbers shirt wasn't orange, it blends in too much with the very red rock. Where is this, Utah?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/31/2007 12:11:02 AM
I thought this was a really cool shot. I love the orange on orange. You kind of have to look for the guy (like Where's Waldo?) I thought that was neat.

Great clarity, I wish he had a different coloured shirt on.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great photo...the use of negative space gives this an imposing sense of scale and the composition is great. Something seems a little off on the sharpness(possibly from the processing stage?).
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great use of rock-space. Pretty much the perfect fit for the challenge too. It also has just a hint of a where's waldo thing going on with the orange shirt.

Beautiful. Is that in Arizona? (I am a climber too) :) 10

great!

Nice capture - Technically this should have been a little better - Looks pretty muzzy at the top of the frame - Some more saturation and contrast could have added some drama - Very nice composition - What a shame he was wearing orange!!

Nice color and the rock, and your climber shows up nicely.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2007 08:42:53 PM
Spot on for the challenge. Seems like the person could be focused a little sharper, but I enjoy the image a lot, plus it makes me get that funny feeling in the pit of the stomach.

I love the perspective, it really gives a sense of the enormity of what he's doing. One of my top picks.

Nice one. These guys are pressy amazing. Pure strength and determination. This could have also been very effective in the most recent Poster challenge 8

Well, this encompasses the challenge! Very exciting shot...excellent composition and color. Kind of wish the climbers shirt wasn't the same color as the rock though...but, we can't control everything! Very nice.
