All shots a 5 so far! What lens are you using?
Adam Lincoln - 22/Nov/10
that's trellis by the way, which you probaby knew
Niall Grimes - 22/Nov/10
Thanks Niall, brain fart this morning. Adam, using a Nikon 18-105mm, this shot and the one of Leotard all have ND Gradient filters on them

Brilliant but have you done some weird cropping of the Cioch block in the top right hand corner or is it really hanging in the air like that! Also how hard do you think Trellis is with the hold broken? I thought >7b!
Joe Costello - 22/Nov/10
Nope, no weird cropping, it hangs like that! I think consensus is still 7a+ but a hard one...

Ha! Nice shot, although not quite as nice as the Mallory one.
I once had to crawl/hobble back to the car park from that crack on the left. I can't remember its name now.

Is this photo on a need to know basis? Because I have to say, as someone who has never been to Burbage South Quarries, and I don't wish to seem at all critical, and I was brought up on gritstone, but, apart from the guy jumping for a hold over a crash mat and the overhanging rock on the right...just what makes this such a remarkable photograph? I apologise, in advance, for my extreme ignorance. It's good, in fact very good, but.... or, I don't know, some explanation would be grand!

There is something a little surreal about this shot, I do like it a lot, but it just looks, i`m not sure.

Awesome. Also, it looks a bit like a cubist version of Almscliff...

For me its just the light, its made a pretty unapealing quarry look strangely inviting. well captured and a shot most people wouldnt think to take, its nice to see a climbing shot where the climbing isnt the focus but still plays an important part in the composition.

Not a bad shot but you may or may not notice nearly all his shots get 5!
andybirtwistle - 14/Mar/11
and what's wrong with nearly all my shots getting 5? At the risk of sounding slightly arrogant, I think a lot of my photos are quite good. Maybe if you were slightly more selective with your album you'd have a few more 5's...,

Oh yes?AND you appear to get an awful lot of votes overall.Vote stacking springs to mind. Pity cos you don't need to.I'm not the only one who's noticed:)
andybirtwistle - 22/Mar/11
I really don't see what your problem is with getting a lot of votes.
Nick Brown - UKC - 22/Mar/11
And I know for a fact that a couple of my friends vote for my photos, which I'm sure happens to almost everybody on this site - but if you're insinuating that I make people vote for my photos then you are wrong.
