If Waldo is the person in red there, this photo does a great job of showing the magnitude of the rocks. Good luck to the climber!

Beautiful picture! wonderfully hidden Waldo! But the title is not the one I would have used...."Brain Freeze" is a nicer way to say what I was thinking. (8)

Wow, that guy has a long climb ahead. Good job on putting this cliff in perspective, without the climber this could pass as a macro.
06/30/2007 12:19:24 PM
Wow! Beautiful setting. My heart skipped a minute at the sheer massiveness and realization of how far 'Waldo' still had to go.
06/29/2007 01:46:21 PM
That's huge! Without the person, this would just be a rock. With the person, it has scale and emotion. Great job!
06/29/2007 11:20:12 AM
I love the way that your shot gives no clue as to the scale of the rock UNTIL you find Waldo - Well done. 8

I wish the colors on this were deeper.
06/27/2007 08:51:22 PM
This is a shot I was thinking of doing, but didn't get near any rock-climbing places. Bottom/left in red top white bottom.
06/27/2007 08:17:08 PM
Holy cow, he has to climb that?! Determination indeed. Well shot.
06/27/2007 07:14:31 PM
To bad (or good) for the red shirt, might have been reallly hard to spot without it! Would have worked really well for negative space too! Great colors
06/27/2007 05:37:01 PM
Wow thats a heck of a climb. Great perspective here and a wonderful job in reminding us how small we really are as indivuals when compared to the earth we inhabit
06/27/2007 03:56:40 PM
Waldo has lost his little mind! Hope he made it home in one piece.
06/27/2007 12:13:18 PM
The little red speck in the left bottom corner... that's waldo right? :) Neat. Good shot!
06/27/2007 03:27:16 AM
Cool image that makes for a nice abstract, with the tones and subtle colors dominating the appearance. The lighting isn't always flattering, especially toward the top, but given the harshness of rocks like these, and the hardness of those who climb them, seems an appropriate choice of processing to me. Nicely shot.

If he wasn't wearing red, he'd be really hard to find. That certainly shows the scaled of the rock face, though.
06/26/2007 10:07:47 PM
Thank goodness for the red shirt (that IS him, right? LOL) - he would have been impossible to find if camouflaged.
I'm glad to see that person in there, helping me to get a grip on the sheer scale of that cliff!
06/26/2007 04:32:37 PM
Dang. determination is right. The climber being so small really makes the mountain look even bigger.
06/26/2007 09:39:47 AM
oh my gosh!!! If it weren't for the red shirt, I never would have seen them!
06/26/2007 07:44:23 AM
I take it the red spot is the Wally figure? If so, that really is determination - there is one heck of a long way to go still!
06/25/2007 11:33:41 PM
Oh my gosh! This is truly massive, and we really are insignificant. Great job, glad "Waldo" is wearing red. Great job with all the texture.
06/25/2007 07:06:08 PM
I can not imagine where you were standing to get this photo. Spectacular, and very challenge appropriate.
06/25/2007 03:44:08 PM
Red really jumps out at you - it's a good thing you didn't color the shirt like the rocks.
06/25/2007 02:43:55 PM
I think this photograph would grab me a bit more if it had a little bit more contrast. Lighting looks flat and maybe bump up the saturation. This photo also needs a border on it I think.

I like all the detail in the textures with a rocks and fits the challenge well.

nice colours in the rock face.
06/25/2007 10:04:24 AM
ILL NEVER UNDERSTAND THE NEED FOR PEOPLE TO DO THIS,great shot btw
06/25/2007 09:45:56 AM
Very nice shot, I really think you could have made this a 10 times better shot, with a boost in contrast and color, and maybe taking the brightness down a bit. I love the composition and think its a really great shot. Nice work.

I thought about this idea. Very impressive climb. It's a pity the person is totally lost by their size.
