@dualauspensiondave you comments are at the bottom hidden because enough people decided they didn't like what you were getting at. Yes this shot is similar to another recent and well known shot, yes maybe a bit too similar and taken just a bit too soon after the other shot in question, but head on bar drag shot have been done for years so who's really copying who anyway. And speaking from experience it is often a riders idea to replicate or reinterpret a rad shot they've seen elsewhere... And the photographer just makes up half the equation.

WAKi-Leaks Installment 8 - Mental Side of MTB
Hahah thanks for the Eurobike shoutout @WAKIdesigns. It was my first time and would have needed an intervention had I not attended World Champs the following week where I was reminded that 99% of virtual mountainbiking doesn't exist in the real world ;-)

11 Steps to Getting POD
I use them for size and weight and yes price. Back in the day you bought a probody film camera to last 10 years. The tech now changes so fast that digital bodies have a short life span. Spending 5k to beat something into the ground for a few years is tough. And MTB shooting is tough on gear. That said Nikon finally filled a gap below the D4 for sports shooting that had been missing. The new D750 looks to be quite promising and I have one on order. I guess the point is you don't need to buy in heavy to "make it". You can get by and do very very well with out spending a fortune. As your career picks up your gear picks up with it... Not the other way around.

See #10 You don't need to tick off every box that Matt suggests. He's just mentioned some simple things to be conscious of. For tight action the shot is all about the rider and the feel of action. Yes, this requires a rider with style. It's hard to get and as Matt said they are worth their weight in gold. Pulled back action is about context. It's a feeling of being in a place more than what they rider is doing. Don't have a group of stylish riders? Shoot wide and use the suroundings to tell a story.

Riding Four Fourteeners in a Day
It's only because someone made a rule that you have to drop a certain amount between to summits for them to count as individual peaks. On a map and in person it's definitely 4 peaks, so the "rule maker" can suck it haha.

Not sure if you are trolling or being serious. I'll go with serious. Minus the riders that photo has some potential. BUT. The timing of the action and placement of rider ruins it, or just makes it boring. They key element of that shot is the kicker in the foreground. The same shot with a rider (with some style) off that kicker would change that photo immensely. It comes down to Location, Action, and Light. You need all three to make something special, but it is very difficult to really ever get more than any of the two no matter how talented someone is. Talent and experience just help some find that winning combo more often and more consistently than others.
