 Best POD of the week
  • - 140
 This would never win POY - it is a table top and composition is bad, however since he is an amateur photographer, he could have won the sympathy...

 composition isn't great, but I still feel the light draws my eye towards him, and its a pretty sweet, almost inverted table...

 Composition really is not that central to a photograph.. Each person see an image which is created through an interaction between the medium they see (in this case today's POD) and their own personal experience; thus 'meaning' and 'aesthetics' are largely on the viewer's end, not the producers.. I'm sure most people looking at this picture will have been in the woods on one of these damp, slightly misty, bright days, where the smells of the wood and moss and mud is clear and fresh in your nose, and the sticky earth sprays up in clumps at every corner.. Hence the picture talks to that experience within you, regardless of supposedly universal rules of composition.

Sorry, currently writing an essay. My 2 pence.

Edit: on the off-chance anyone actually reads this and is vaguely interested, this is not my theory; linked below is an article by the All-Around-General-Badass who came up with it.

 The lighting in this photo is amazing... Pure magic. I mean, the whole situation is ideal, but the light rays are just incredible. Massive props go to this photog. Smile Thanks for making my day a little more awesome.

 This IS a great shot. Not only because of the lighting and all around composition, but also because the manuever, however basic for some, has iconic value. I think we all remember the days when busting that first successfu tabletop meant that you earned instant trail cred with your boys, which ultimately bolstered confidence, making that 360 and or no hander that much closer to a reality.

 Photo of my life more like it. This is amazing! From a riders point of view, homie is styling this, and from a professional photographers point of view, the photographer killed it. Great job both of you!
