Near perfect. Great focus, great timing, great composition. If the light had only been a bit nicer this would be one of my all time favourite bouldering shots. Brilliant.

Awesome shot, gets a 5 from me. Have you tried tweaking the levels to make it a bit brighter?

great shot, could almost convince me to go 'full frame'! Could do with being tweaked a bit in PS with contrast and colour of the best bouldering shots in a long time

Thanks folks, will pass your comments on to Jim who took this one. Helecoptere is a dark problem (the tree and direction) and I know Jim likes to keep them as natural as possible.
Again thanks

Nick Bird (lurker) did some serious damage to his ankle taking a tumble from this move. Glad to see you made it though.
