Really great shot! (A shame that his eyes are closed though, just a minor detail)

Winter conditions already!?

Invert? Think of the view that the photographer sees in the viewfinder...also we read faces much better the other way up. Just some personal thoughts. I feel that the image works best because of the lovely colours, much better than the black everyone seems to wear nowadays!

I too like the photo but I really prefer to see images like this looking down on the climber as if I was the belayer.

Great shot, a nice tight bright and upright crop with enough room for text/logo.Oh, and the eyes are open.

Great photo!

I've just turned my computer upside down to see what this would look like the other way up. And it simply doesn't have the same impact.
Leave it as it is, it's a great pic.

Yes, invert. Far more impact.

I'm with Calder - leave it alone. The other way up gravity doesn't seem to have the same grip on him.

Much better and more honest the other way up!

when was this taken? this year??

Since when did honesty have anything to do with photography. Its best whichever way looks best.
