Unusual, refreshing shot. Excellent form that definitely shows strength, not to mention dexterity.

I think this is a great photo. It should have recieved higher scores, closer to a 7 avg. I like the lighting, also like the texture of the climbing wall. Good Job. 10

Thankyou for all the comments, especially the skinny ones, this is actually a self portrait I used the timer while quickly jumping on the wall. And yes I do eat......occasionally ; )
Cheers
Tom.

Being in a rockcliming class right now, I know what strength it takes for thos annoying little finger holds (I try to avoid them at all costs). :) This was a very good picture. Keep up the good work!

Interesting contortion.

this makes no sense to me whatsoever where is the strength????just a spectator and not a photographer!

Great point-of-view, nice lighting. It really looks like the subject is just about clinging to the wall. Ribbon winner, methinks - 8

Lighting isn't idea = too strong for my preference. But content is great - the wall itself makes a really quirky background and I love the way we can see his muscles straining.

I like the display of muscles on the back and the impressions that they are bearing his weight - it fits the challenge beautifully and I appreciated the black and white and shadows very much. Nice work.

Very nice clear picture. I know this boy must be really strong to do this but he looks so dreadfully thin that he doesn't look very strong.

I like the lighting and shadows. Plus, being a rock climber myself, I know it takes a lot of strength to hold onto those small knubs.

I would have liked to see as much light on the left as on the right.

This is an interesting photo, the black and white goes well with this photo. I like the position of your model. Nice work, definately portrays strength!

I hope this is a rock climbing wall....kind of hard to tell from this angle. Good idea.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow...what an inspiring shot---a 10 from me. The shadows on this a phenomenal and the pose is great. I truly hope this does well.

I like the lighting and the focus on the picture. I like the black and white as well. Definitely a matter of strength.

Good pose. I like the offsetting strength message with the thin body.

You can see the muscles working in the young frame.
