A very fresh shot, from yesterday. Biking with my kids in the Hayarkon park, we passed near the climbing wall. Professionals climbers besides beginners and children climbing on the four sides of the wall.
The western part was too crowdy, the eastern side was too dark, so I choosed the southern side which was nicely lit, and there was only one professional climber.
No PP except of cropping and adding a frame

The light is very well dosed, not overexposing too much the left part, Yitzhak. I like the way you left a good part of the wall as a background for the climber, so it could be sensed its real size. I like the natural colours too.
Having in mind the PP you did - this is a very skilfully taken shot!

Fine shot of the climbing wall. In itself a strange abstraction from the real thing.
But of course far more urban and not least more exposed for the performer in a way.
Yes, interesting shot..

That is agreat climbing shot Yitzhak. The sun reveals the texture and profile of the "rock". The pose of the climber and her position in the frame are very well chosen.

Sorry, but I have a hard time liking this photo. You did a good job with composition and so on, it's just that to my aesthetic sensibilities this climbing wall is so ugly that it hurts, it looks like somebody puked there, spoils the photo somewhat for me. You still get a light green one for a good photographic job.

Well, looks like the guy has a bit further to go. I can see the graphical quality of the wall and ropes that drove you into taking this shot. The climber is well positioned, maybe in the lower right corner would have increased the impact of the task ahead of him. Good shot, Yitzhak.

A shame the whole wall isn't evenly lit. The lighting & texture on the left are great.

The light is at theother end. It is also climbing. Hmmm....an interesting competition. Good shot.

I think the wall could be inside a Museum of Modern Art – it´s just perfect. I also like the position of the climber. Very interesting and beautiful shot – one of my favorites.

I love those climbing walls. I use to climb when younger. Mostly in the Alps, but the waklls were real fun. I wasn't a pro..
Nice shot Yitzhak.
How do you like your new plant?
