I was rather impressed with this chap - no pad, no spotters, bloody freezing cold... plus the top of the boulder was completely covered in snow!

Could you get away with some selective lightening?, may a touch of magic wand on the red sweater?

superb, one of the best bouldering shots I've ever seen- you just want to be there.

A great shot.
If only Stanage were so quiet more often...

exposure is spot on at the crag nick, but this photo would benefit hugely from some contrast adjustment. At the very least I would dodge the pebble and climber half a stop....
