Great picture

Scenic and from a climb-- can't ask for much more. I wouldn't pay too much attention to the "tilt" comment; you lost your chance at Photo of the Century when you included a caption and attached this to an informative page.

Shame, shame...

Seriously, though, great shot and a great route page-- beyond what I can do but nice to read.

Re: Great picture

thanks bob...yeah, I think your right mate, I challenge the "photogs" (like Mr. Sebastern) around here way too much to win any prizes...challenging the status quo is kind of my middle name in life I guess...shame on me to be was a great climb...the kind you remember for a bit...cheers

very nice ...

Just kidding, it's great. Really makes you want to be there!

Re: very nice ...

that is a "batch process" on any photo that loads from my camera to copy remains pure, the other time from the uploader, yet makes it more difficult for the photo to be priated...lessor quality as well, reduced size...which also makes the image less likly to be used without permission...climb enough, put up enough interesting images, it becomes an issue...but this batch process thing is something you should all implement if you are into anything similar to what I do full time...cheers

are you using any photo editing software Dow?

Re: Editing

just an adobe batch function that duplicates the image, reduces quality and places the watermark on it so it is internet avoid illicit use....on beta shots, you will see me add arrows and the like, again adobe...the only reason I get great photos once in awhile seriously is because I am doing this full time, constantly exposed to incredible landscapes...this would have been a one handed shot on a cheap camera from an awkward and cold belay! What I really need to market is my sheepskin big pack waste band....I know you had your eye on it! See you back in Utah soon. Cheers.
