/ Not enough climbing in top 10 climbing photos!
I think there is a case for separating the rock climbing photos from the alpine/mountaineering photos in the weekly top 10s.
This week for instance there is only one rock climbing shot and one of point 5. All the rest are alpine landscapes without even any climbing going on; much as I like these and can see why they catch a lot of votes I click on the top ten climbing shots to people gripped on routes!
I'm not saying they should be excluded but perhaps have a separate top ten for Alpine/mountaineering shots. I would still like to look at them but not to the exclusion of the climbing photos.
Bloody skiing..... it'll be biking next....
Would be good if we could have a weekly top ten in each category
Blimey I didn't think I was making a very contentious point!
There are loads of amazing photos on this site and several really talented photographers post stuff every week. I'd like to see ONE more category of top ten images to look at.
It might look like this:
Top 10 Hill Photos
Top 10 Climbing Photos
Top 10 Alpine/Mountaineering Photos
Is that a bad thing?
Well I agree with you anyway! Climbing photos on a climbing website seems a simple concept, but looking for inspiration it's hard to avoid getting bogged down in galleries full of (admittedly very good) landscape shots, sometimes barely even related to a climbing area. +1 for the idea of separating the subjects in the top 10's at least
A while back the mods did put a like button on the forums. Again there was a massive backlash against the idea, people did not want Facebook near Ukc. The mods made a hasty retreat on that too. Fair play to them for listening.
Horses for courses...
Oh no! Not horses! They are worse than montain scenes, skiing and biking....
Actually I'd much prefer photos of people pony trekking to ones of mountain biking. Much more in the spirit of the hills.
