Would this photo benefit from being rotated 90 degrees clockwise? Still good mind.

I twisted my monitor 90 degrees clockwise and think it's better as-is. I'd like to see more "connection" with the surroundings... everything about the climber is great, but the background and rock aren't very interesting. Still, really captures the action and a great photo.

I don't agree. The background not being interested is good because it draws you to the subject. Also a screen rotation for me improved the picture. But each to his own....

Really good shot gave it 5. Would like to see what it looks like rotated 180 degrees and in B&W.

Definitely needs rotating 90 degrees, but I've still given it 5.

I stood at the bottom of this today and the top looks doable but the bottom looks UTTERLY desperate!

That Rainbow slab is steep, plumb vertical I would say from the look of this photo. Not sure exactly where on the Rainbow it is though. I agree with what others are saying that the photo should be rotated. A good rule of thumb is to allign the eyes in the photo so that they look natural, if there is no figure in the image then it doesn't really matter as much about the rotation. My original instinct was to rotate my laptop!

It's not on the rainbow slab. It's on a vertical wall nearby.
