Very nice shot of a classic route. I might have cropped the very top of the photo just so it doesn't look like there is any camera tilt (as visible by the skyline).

Either that, or include more sky (particularly if any clouds about), as I don't think it is so much camera tilt, as natural horizon with photo edge distortion from the lense used, and it seems emphasised by only having a small portion of it visible.

Would have been good to see the belayer for perspective, but other than that the photo is well composed, particularly with the climber action/position; ... even if there is a hidden quickdraw at climber's waist*.

(* Which detracts a little from a climber's perspective when viewing the photo, as compared to a non-climber viewing the same photo).

Extra half star for having a bolt in frame, would have given an extra two stars if there was a bouldering mat somewhere in it. Actually, it's a common body position to be in/see, but not often photographed and for that I think it's a good photo.

good photo but spoiled a bit, agree with simey, because trees and background look tilted

Classic route indeed. As I remember, it's a shiny u-bolts except about 2/3rd up where
a bracket is needed. As for the photo, the megalong valley is always a winner. The
graininess is distracting though. May I ask where the photographer was standing?
