[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a friend of mine doing rockclimbing at Gateway centre in Umhlanga. This is obviously an indoor climb, which would explain the roof in the background.

This was taken standing on the second story of the centre, so this guy was pretty high up. Not being able to use some fill in flash (firstly because I did'nt want to distact him and secondly because it was probably too far), I had to have a steady hand taking this.

Light was pretty low, but I think it came out alright. The lights behind him gave an interesting effect, outlining him. Some people reckon it looks unnatural. I reckon it's a man made rock, how much more unnatural can you get?! What do you think?
