Al - Ta man, It was taken hanging off a rope. I was pushing out as far as I could from the wall with the camera at arms length.

Sean dude thanks, can't wait to get back kina coped out of space walk, there's also that pumpy e2 traverse I've got my eye on. Mark sent the edge in good order, commenting it was hard for the grade and pumpy. However he took a while to work out the crux move.

PK - Aye this is a good example of what the lens can do when the angle, position of shot and rock features work well together. Go for it you wont regret it!

It also highlights the distortion inherent in wide lens, which is why I prefer the previous shot; sorry!

Do see what you mean comparing the shot before it's the arm that highlights it eh? I love the distortion, so I guess its preferential. just enough to accentuate the perspective with out making the scene looked to f*%^% up.
