2.11 - "Needs Work" 

I've been taking critique and re-uploaded my photos with recommend edits. Let me know if this isn't okay.

This is my different view of my friend climbing Blue Light Special (5.11b) at Smith Rock, OR

I love the composition, but I think that the orange is a bit too strong, it looks a bit garish and the detail of the crag is slightly lost.

Thanks for the comment Tom! I think I actually agree with you. I am red/green colorblind and sometimes I kinda miss the mark. Especially now that I am seeing it on a differently calibrated screen.

Agree with Tom, I think the saturation needs to be toned down. I wish the pants were a different color altogether to separate the subject a little better. I also think the highlights on the climber could be pulled back a bit. Overall I think your other submission is stronger--I like that composition with the wider angle with more context given the natural beauty of the surroundings. That being said, I think with a little work this could be a solid submission too.

Thanks for the reply Josh! I like the composition of my other submission more as well. I'll try making those adjustments to the image.
