Superb photo Stu.

Where you on the DNA belay to get that shot?
Adam Lincoln - 23/May/07Report
I was standing on the cave floor but quite far back for this one, i think the dna belay would put 'little kalymnos' fully behind dave.

That's incredible.

Stunning photo. Have you chopped the rope out?
datoon - 25/May/07Report
It is pretty much unedited (slight tweak of contrast). The rop is running down the side of his arm.

Fabulous shot. Don't know if you realise it Stu - but you've captured the colours of the Australian Aboriginal flag...

That's so much better than the usual clich├ęd shot of this route.

I gave this a one because it is so clearly not a proper photograph but a photoshop posed excercise, if I am wrong I apologise.

Thanks for the honesty Al. I will admit that I upped the contrast and tweaked levels but did no more then I usually would with a photo, the colours were all there when the photo came out of the camera. It may have been posed but to be honest I can't remember, even if it was it is hardly unusual on either my gallery or others on UKC.
I'd love to know what your definition of a 'proper photograph' is in the digital age though, not many people on here are getting 5s without some post processing. I suspect if you go through my gallery applying the same rules you'll be giving me a lot more 1s :-)
