    ok so i am totally a sucker for shooting really close up on climbing photos.
    i just like it better.. i think its more interesting..the movement..
    but i catch some crap over it too.. so i've worked some on a few wider shots.and here are two of my favs.. what do ya'll think?

    There are great colors, but I think the climbers get lost in the scenery. I like the close up ones much better!

    i agree with the above.

    and if the second picture had been taken with a clear blue sky like the first picture, the colors would be stunning!

    It definitely takes more work to make the climbers sand out when you are taking the wide shots, maybe try going more mid-range than this and try to make the climbers more prominent in any way you can think of.

    These are nice shots too, but I like the close ups better.

    yea, i understand.
    i think about selective color on both of these.
    i've done them that way before just so that the climbers stand out more.
    oh well.. thanks for the opinions

    Took me a while to really see the CLIMBER in the first, I was soooo taken in by the blue of the sky and the light brown of the leaves, I could hardly force my eyes to look a the rock face at all.

    The second is nice, but it is very obvious he isn't awfully high up as yet, and I do mind that mat/rug/thingy on the ground, I find that the most distracting (more so than the amount of wood around him).
