Climbing on Torre Grande by JamesRushforth Climbing on Torre Grande by JamesRushforth
04/09/13 - Climbing on Torre Grande, Cinque Torri, Dolomites, Italy.

Camera data (Exif):
Canon EOS 6D
Canon EF17-40mm f/4L USM
F/7.1
Exp 1/100 sec
ISO-100

Cinque Torri has to be one of my favourite climbing destinations in the Dolomites. A fantastic jumble of spires, pinnacles and boulders provides climbing opportunities of every type, all with a stunning backdrop. It's great hearing the shouts of other climbers echoing around the towers, a real community spirit in the vertical world.

Daily Deviation

Given 2015-06-17
Climbing on Torre Grande by JamesRushforth gives us a different and eye-catching perspective on Italy! ( Featured by tanikel )
:iconappant:
This photograph has got a great composition! The negative space created by the upper left rock against the sky, combined with the horizon line and dark shadow created by a cloud that is draped across the mountains, lead my eye to the center of interest in a very natural way. This has been well composed!

My only critique about this photograph would be that the lighting and contrast of the background continues to compete for my attention. It pulls my eye away from your focal point. I find myself looking more at the background and tiny village below, than I do at the climber suspended 1000ft above.
What do you think?

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning! Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died. Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you(Awesome pic by the way!
