Not my cup of tea, the rider doesn't "pop" and the background and foreground are too distracting for me...
(Jan 19, 2013 at 0:37)
And the fact the place looks like its gonna fall apart.
(Jan 19, 2013 at 1:56)
if he was wearing bright red or what ever it would be much better
(Jan 19, 2013 at 2:17)
Picture talk aside, that's a bitchin unturndown for that quarter
(Jan 19, 2013 at 3:19)
Should have maybe waited for different weather, or later in the day. That flat light and grey sky isn't helping anything.

i disagree, i think the point is to make the rider one with the ghetto-style pipe. why sould he pop out, there are plenty of pictures in that style. i think it's super cool
(Jan 19, 2013 at 5:36)
looks super apocalyptic, i think its a great shot
(Jan 19, 2013 at 6:45)
Canadians drink tea?! Yet another reason to move.
(Jan 19, 2013 at 7:02)
i like it because it looks ghetto
(Jan 19, 2013 at 8:10)
I like it. Makes me feel like I'm there. But that most likely because the room I'm in is freezing right now. BUUURRRR

i like how the rider isn't unnaturally popping out .......it gets a little old
(Jan 19, 2013 at 14:14)
at first i thought that was a can-can table or something haha!! awesome style
(Jan 19, 2013 at 15:55)
I think the darker looks is what was being sought after. The fact that it's not a flashy new saturated POD makes it raw and meaningful. Killer Shot

@David-hill hell yeah we drink tea!

I like it. Sort of shows that riding happens anywhere, long after the jumps have been appreciated.
(Feb 13, 2016 at 1:49)
I saw the rider after reading your post, you are right about that!
(Oct 23, 2011 at 18:09)
That place is so ghetto bug sick!
(Dec 1, 2011 at 8:07)
thats sick as f*ck but looks very slippy "/
(Jan 19, 2013 at 2:09)
I think the flat daylight is not the best one for this photo, but I really like the way to give life to something dead (my english is terrible, sorry all)

With a little bit of post production editing this shot could be a lot better. As Maarrk mentioned, there's a lot going on in both the foreground and background. The focus is not on the rider due to the busy surroundings. The rider is also a bit blurry, so maybe a faster shutter speed next time and maybe a remote flash. Just my two cents.
(Jan 19, 2013 at 0:17)
Even some simple colour correction and the red in his bike would stand out.l
(Jan 19, 2013 at 15:56)
get used to the dark side maarrk
(Jan 22, 2013 at 11:00)
there is definitely a wireless flash used that is why the rider even pops and the shutter is at 1/200. i do agree that there is a lot going on, but what really needs to happen is to have the rider wear a different colored shirt that would pop even more, like red or green.
(Jan 19, 2013 at 0:34)
maarrk is right, something as simple as an orange tshirt would have made this pom worthy, but still a sick shot - awesome composition and mood, nice pod.
(Jan 19, 2013 at 5:45)
Such a dope trick and shot but the first guy is right. The rider need a flash on him or some neon!!
(Jan 19, 2013 at 11:13)
great pic, more from a scenery point than anything else but riding a halfpipe in such a state is prety brave!
(Jan 19, 2013 at 7:41)
What is it? Second day in a row some junk yard photo gets POD. It's not that I can't see the story behind it - some rotten ramp that is far beyond its time of glory is being brought back to life by an eager rider. OK, that would be a great idea if the photographer could render the atmosphere through a proper composition. What I see here is twigs poking my face..
(Jan 19, 2013 at 16:56)
Almost didn't notice the rider
(Jan 19, 2013 at 4:08)
(Jan 19, 2013 at 12:20)
took me 20 minutes just to see the rider still cant figure out where his other leg is
(Jan 19, 2013 at 13:53)
what am I supposed to be looking at here ?
(Jan 19, 2013 at 2:49)
thats lake quater in Chernobil
(Jan 19, 2013 at 0:48)
I'd be scared of landing back on that thing in the wrong spot.........
