Amazing photo, great colours, stunning rock features.
Minus a star because the climber feels like the least interesting part of the photo :(

... and the belayer looks thoroughly bored.

They belayer isn't bored. He is recovering from leg injuries, and the walk-up is on
rather steep scree. At least he's not on his phone, unlike some belayers... ;-)

I find it quite interesting seeing drone pics (still very much a novelty to me) due the angles they can achieve.
This one is great inasmuch as both climber and belayer are within the frame.

As mentioned above, the scale of the scene and clothing colour makes it hard to see the climber, though the clothing colour of the belayer makes him stand out more, which is good...

I don't know if the colours are enhanced by Canon in-camera-software settings or not, but they are certainly vivid to the point of being surreal.

As I've kind of set up for discussion on the 'critique' thread (General Discussion topic on Forum), the lack of protection (depending what the first 3 pieces are as placed by climber), between first pro and belayer, is a potential concern for upward loading in the unfortunate event of a climber fall, though this might be trivial (in this instance) depending further feedback on that thread.
