Nostalgic, like action, like that he carries even a bigger rack than me on a short pitch, minus for
the helmet.

Despite being regularly coaxed (and pictured) onto starred routes, MJ's magnum opus is Red Tide - the longest, chossiest, non-starred route in Australia!

I like it because it shows (in sufficiently close detail), a number of characteristics common in climbing that most viewers of this photo (includes non-climbers), can recognise or indeed directly relate to.

It combines strength, a degree of tenuousness, flexibility, the gear involved, and sufficient facial expression to hint at the mindset involved.
The strong angles draw the eye and set off well a framing-symmetry between the dark featured background and the relatively blank foreground.

I would've given the last half-star rating if there was slightly less distracting foliage encroaching on the subject.

Well done climber and photographer, and thanks for submitting it.

Massive..... Massive rack, Massive move, Massive muscles, Massive focus. And an extra half a star for the suspense of having to guess if the package is also massive. (Almost impossible to achieve in a photo taken on such an angle, what the hell, five stars!)

Nice work, it's not easy making an 8m route look good when the photographer doesn't want to leave the ground. Loses a star for the climber wearing grey and orange clothes to a grey and orange cliff.

For some reason I can't shake the feeling that this is a fashion shoot not a climbing
shot. You've seen it before...."Martin wears an orange designer T and trakky daks
from Dimmeys" with a footnote "climbing gear supplied by Black Diamond, helmet by
Petzel".

I can visualise the conversation "I've got my foot up.....now take the frikken
photo!!!!"...."yeh yeh love it Martin- gimme those eyes yeh gimme those eyes".

1 star as a climbing shot. 5 as a fashion parody so I give it an average of 3.

PS sorry damo- it was an accident!!! Please let me in the circle again.
