Haha. Why the hatin' B - wishing your GUNS were that big? ;-)

I agree that a real poser would have done a much better job of pretending not to laugh.
You have an opinion, so do I. When these differ, please don't confuse your opinion with the truth, nothing is absolute.

Who gives rats ass if its posed, I think you people must be jealous, hell if I were as strong as that an on that class of route and the lens was pointing at me I'd pose, even apply some fake tan, if there's effort and psyche then its all cool.

Nah, if it was posed the guy would be wearing bronze up and a toupe!
What I find fake is the rock colour. Is it really that orange? Or are you using saturated slide Mikey? Perhaps tweaking the saturation photoshop in effort to improve Flex's skin tone :wink: ?

cloudburst: In case you haven't noticed, I was trying to spark off a spirited ethical debate about the virtues and vices of posing.

Easy on the hate speech!

actually i desaturated the orange a bit in this shot, just uploaded a more desaturated one 8) . Colors change a bit when getting compressed for the gallery.

And ... the shot wasnt actually posed flex is just a natural flexer :thumleft: i was pretty far away shooting on a long lens, it is the crux move...

Not posed, I promise.

I must also say Godzilla, Monster and Beast are 3 of the best quality routes I have done anywhere and that includes Spain, France, Kalymnos and Thailand!
