Brilliant, shame these 'people' photos can't be voted on.

Thanks :) I'm pretty sure that I submitted it as Sport Climbing (that's what we were doing shortly after the photo was taken!) so it could be voted on, but i think a moderator changed it after submission. I'll try and change it again :)

Is it 'shopped? Purely interested. I love it.

Not exactly, I edited it in Adobe Lightroom though... If you're interested how, here's the history of the changes:
Hanne Split-Tone Preset, COL Dragan 4 Preset, Clarity:+63, Crop, Fill Light:+100, Split-tone changes (Shadow Hue:223, Highlight Hue:73)
I downloaded the two presets off inside-lightroom.com
To be honest, looking at it now the changes aren't hugely dramatic - just changes the colours a little and makes it a bit more contrasty...

ps. Haven't mentioned it anywhere - the main way I got the effect was by using a remote flash unit, so the flash light is coming from behind Becky's Hands, just off to the left of the shot..

That's awesome! Makes me feel like I'm about to start a route...

Umm, at risk of sounding rude, is Becky male or female?
Chris F - 26/May/08
I'm a female thank you! x

it's the high contrast, it doesn't do her feminine hands justice... *cough*
tallphil - 26/May/08
I meant no offense Becky, as tall phil says, it's the high contrast (honest!).
