Good to see another good photo uploaded to Chocky.

Although I like it, I think it might've been a better photo in vertical format; so as to include the belayer, especially given the subject distance from the photographer, as it would still have included a fair bit of the scenic background.

I like the climber action, especially the tenuous feet placements, but feel the action let down some-what by the rope already clipped above, ie it would've been a cracker of a shot if the clipping action was captured in progress rather than immediately afterward.

Alex,
Great crag name and a great little find. It certainly climbs well.
Good rock & extremely photogenic.
Why go anywhere else?

I reckon any climbing photo that makes you think "I want to climb that (or sometimes
I wish I could) is a good photo!
This also has great colours, contrast, action, but what I love is half the photo is a
beautiful, eerie landscape shot that abruptly ends as if torn in half replaced with a
beautiful
cliff line - and dude hanging by one hand and not much else in the middle. Great
position - you woilen't get that in a portrait (M9 wink)

@ "you woilen't get that in a portrait (M9 wink)"

Ok, I'll bite,
My experience of photography indicates otherwise, so I'm not sure what you mean...

& no, I don't have any issues with your point of view, as I regard photography being largely like art, inasmuch as 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder'!

"I think it might've been a better photo in vertical format;"

I just reckon you should review the photo in question, not what might have been... he
could have had a brighter shirt to stand out more, matched his shoes with the rope,
worn a helmet with RED BULL on it, waited until the moon was in the sky in the
background and for a kangaroo to hop across the plains.

My comment was actually about the way the cliff cuts the photo in half - and that in a
vertical photo you would almost certainly have less landscape & mostly cliffline, which
wouldn't have had such a dramatic effect.

@ "review the photo in question"

Fair enough Martym, though I thought I'd done that and offered up some constructive
feedback* from perhaps a different perspective.
It seems you prefer 'halves' for dramatic effect re photo conjured up feelings, & I
prefer 'one third/two thirds' for a different balance - feeling.

* I always find photographing a subject with others an enjoyably intriguing thing due
to the many different perspectives involved. It's quite remarkable how others can
view the same thing and 'capture' completely different elements.

PS, I chuckled at the waiting for the roo comment!
Cheers.

well spotted mirror mine - i was going to comment earlier re horizontal v
vertical format saying vertical would mean you'd see the carpark at top and
bottom. However with no evidence I decided not to.
