Picture of the Month is an article showcasing the best Pictures of the Day from the month before. We take the most viewed photos that were uploaded in the previous month and give you the top 7 more or less...<br><br>Another month down, and another selection of amazing shots that have made it into the Picture of the Month. I'd first like to start by clarifying something that gets asked about almost every month. The way the POM works is the photos are ranked by number of views in the month that they're uploaded. It has nothing to do with overall number of view, or when the photo was POD. So if you upload an image on September 30th, and it becomes POD on October 10th, it may have a lot of views in October, but it's only eligible for Septembers POM because that's when it was uploaded. This means that if you have a photo (or a video) that you think has a chance at POM or VOM you should upload it in the first few days of the month, and definitely not at the end of the month. With that said here are the most viewed photos that were uploaded in August...

 in the photo of eddy masters i noticed he was whereing flip flops.
  • + 16
 I'm hoping your just being sarcastic, I'm also hoping you realise that whereing is actually spelled wearing. Yes the whole point in that photo being POM is that he's wearing jandals (correct Kiwi spelling of flip flops).

 I think The Norway photo takes the #1 spot, next to the one of Curtis airing the Drop-In Clinic drop cause thats just insane! The way I see it is WHIP-WHIP-WHIP-SUPERMAN-WHIP

 What bike is Eddy Masters on?? Looks sick

 @zalgrath: The lip of the jump is where the photographer is situated. The dirt and growth that you see in the right, lower corner is the lip of the jump. The Jump is ANTI Media's "Days of Thunder"-jump. Recently sessioned by the Damage Inc. "Whip Shit".

 he is riding a zerode (zerodebikes.com) they have a shimano gear hub mounted in the middle of the frame, one cahin goes up to that from the cranks then theres another chain that connects the gearbox to the rear hub. they ride pretty sweet, a few of my buddies have them, we ride with the designer sometimes, he knows his shit.
