I like the contrast between his skin and the rough stone. If this isn't fitness, then I don't know what is! :)

Thanks for the comments. I agree...usually I like shots with more perspective of the whole rock face, so the climber looks very small. However, in this case, his body was well balanced and I decided to make this a "texture" study between rock and skin :)

I know that wide angle lenses are more expensive. I want to see this with more negative space to capture how big the stone is. 7

Very nice composition and lighting. Maybe I would have liked a bit more contrast to make his back stand out from the rock.

Great shot! I love the juxtaposition of the climber's strength and the ageless beauty of the rock.
