Very interesting shot. Glad I was not your model! You do well at giving the impression of extreme height (perhaps because it is extreme height)and that helps to draw the viewer into the picture and make it interesting for them.

Initially, the composition works because having the guy in the left 1/3 of the frame gives it a stable feeling, but then I saw that little tiny dude "behind" the subject. Because the viewer tends to look in front of the subject (on the right), the little spot may be missed and it helps to add to the feeling of height even more.

Technically, the exposure seems okay, there are details throughout, but the saturation seems a bit strong, especially on the skin tones.

Good work and best wishes in future challenges.

Color may have been adjusted too much in to yellow. changed the overall color of the skin and rock. Nice angle.

This is a nice photo, meets the challenge well, saturation is pretty good on the landscape, however its a bit over saturated on the skin. I'd recommend backing down the reds a bit using selective color. Otherwise nicely done.

Oh my......9 months ago...I would have freaked with this image...but then I overcame my fear of heights...and I love it. The person below really gives that sense of scale.

Is that a person all the way down there?

Truer words were never spoken (to add another cliche' to the mix)

You lost the perception of "depth" in this picture. Not sure how you can give the feeling of being up high. It's a tough shot.

Fun shot. The thing that really made it work for me was the person walking on the road below.
