    Sach, sorry, I thought it was pretty obvious. I wanted comments and opinions on my work. After all, isn't that what this forum is about?

    In my opinion, your post was rather rude. Why bother posting it at all? Be more constructive with your feedback.

    Well, I think they look good for someone who was probably hanging off the side of a cliff to shoot these...

    They are interesting. #4 looks like she may be a bit afraid. You got the foreground thing going. I've shot rock climbing a couple times. The shots I thought stood out were the ones where I captured some expression on the subjects face, reaching hard for the next hand hold or, at the other end of the spectrum, looking down totaly exhausted. Either tight in showing exprestion or way out showing how small/high they are.

    Thanks Jim, I'll definitely be taking this into consideration the next time I go out. It's too bad no one got a shot of my facial expression when it was time to come down and I was told to "just let go of the mountain." Haha.

    Get up top and shoot down or hang from a rope along side them shooting up does not work unless they are top notch climbers, free climbing

    Thanks for the suggestions Gary, but I'm not quite sure I understand why shooting up works for a free climber but not for amature climbers?

    I think you did an adequate job documenting some amateur rock climbers but they do seem to lack interest for the viewer. I'm sure they would mean a lot to you, or someone else who was there though.
    I agree with Jim, getting good expressions on their faces could really add interest.

    I was camping in Kananaskis for a week in Early August...it rained quite a bit. :(

    In climbing shots they don't like to see ropes unless it is the lead climber like this

    Gary,

    Great photos, that makes sense - would have never thought of it before.
