 Awsome POD

 Its a cool photo, shame about the photoshop blur though :/ Though i cant see how else you would get that effect straight from the camera, as the object is moving towards you blah blah:P

 picture's' of the day today... i wonder??? btw that shot is sick, nice work on the computer and trails!
  • 28 8
 Photsho...

this is an awesome picture, i wonder if this is what it's like to ride drunk/high?
  • 10 5
 It is possible... Insanely fast CAF + slower shutter speed + zooming(or maybe unzooming) during the shot
  • 18 6
 but how long biker must fly in this position? i think it's photoshop Smile
  • 9 5
 yest it is, one hundred per cent, but who cares?? sick pic, that's what POD is about.
  • 5 1
 I got a similar effect on a pic by zooming in and out whilst taking the photo, i did it by accident but it looked awesome.
  • 3 2
 thats intense, great photoshopping

and if you scrol up/down, it kinda looks like he's jumping in and out (might just be me i just woke up)
  • 9 4
 thats done with a slowish shutter speed and zooming out while taking the picture!! give a mint effect!! cool pic guys!!
  • 3 5
 If you're going to use my expression, Toby, use it properly; in this case it should be "...in/to biblical proportions".

Awesome POD anyway...

 To all those who say this can be done with a slow shutter speed while zooming: You can only do this with a stationary object. The rider is not a stationary object, even if he tries to maintain this position while moving directly at the camera, any slight movement would show up as a blur. There's nothing wrong with using Photoshop because it's a great tool. That said, there's no point in denying it when it's used.

 Ok guys, I can see a lot of bitching here because I photoshoped the picture. Sure I did and maybe the original one is not POD material, I just added it so you can judge : www.pinkbike.com/photo/2075471.
Nor the trick neither the jump was huge. My aim was to render the speed which is why I decided to emphasize the background's blur. I could have done that optically, but the effect would have been miles away from this.
Anyways, I think this was something pretty new, I've never seen this before and I urge you to bring new ideas so you can get POD one day, untill then...enjoy Smile
Props to the rider Olivier, and all the shapers from Verrières-le-buisson, where we had a great contest the last week-end : www.pinkbike.com/video/21500

 now thats photoshoping
  • 11 2
 rider looks good but that effect is shocking, why would you do that to the photo. no way should this be POD
  • 6 0
 sick concept.. though i dont really like this photo.
its not bad.. just not my taste. DONT get me wrong, its got nothing to do with the editing, i think using photoshop is a awesome skill to have.
i dont get why poeple are getting negative props for saying its good editing> i mean what is it then?
  • 14 6
 Hey Slightly stoopid at least this guy posts pics of him self ridin unlike YOU
  • 7 1
 Fair Play Tht Could Be Over The Tiniest Of Gaps But The Way Uve Edited It Looks Sweet !!!!

 thats not pod it doesn't show progresion in any way its just a little efects
  • 8 4
 cant see how big jump, half turned bar, and tons of effect. in my opinion its a piece of shit.
  • 2 2
 yeahhh i totally agree haha put it away. who chooses these lame POD's
  • 8 2
 photoshop ! Razz
  • 6 3
 Shit pic of the day, why bother putting boring pics like this as the pic of the day? I prefer pictures where you can actually see what's being ridden...
  • 4 2
 There is no way to get the background that out of focus and have the rider in focus while the subject is moving. Has to be photoshop. If it could be done Sterling L would have done it by now.
  • 2 3
 Looking at even closer depth of field plane is so deep that the rider would have to be blurry as well to get this shot natural.
  • 4 0
 i would like to see the pic without affect aswell
  • 3 1
 Looks pretty stupid. It looks like he trying to do a table but failing to do so. And the photo shop makes my eyes hurt. sry. should not be pod.

But atleast he made a good job of it!

 Not just a little bit either you are turly terrible
  • 3 2
 horrible never should have been pod i hate it so much im sick of seeing these frigin softails doing nothing but a table in a speed blur fuck this photo
  • 3 4
 Its possible to get this effect with the camera (no photoshop). I wouldnt say to that extent though. Its just a slow shutter, as you take the shot you zoom from the closest point to the widest.


Nice one mate.
  • 2 1
 wow, someone talking sense, incredible Big Grin
love the pic, its like something out of a nightmaire...
  • 4 0
 You can't get this exact affect with just a camera.
  • 2 0
 indeed, just like whiteman91 said Big Grin (i liked the tip on how to achieve a similar/lesser effect)...but enough of all the how its done, samo2705 has now been kind enough to explain how he achieved the effect ^(many thanks). Great editing and imagination, keep it up Big Grin
  • 5 3
 omg that's ugly, the worst pod what I saw. photoshop-nothing special
  • 4 2
 this photo sucks.. i hope it chages again today
  • 3 1
 Not diggin it too much. just my opinion.
  • 4 1
 I second that.
  • 2 1
 Agreed, I'm not a fan. Way too worked in photoshope giving a poor composition.

 i dont care if its been photo shoped. looks awesome!!!!! the camra man would be pretty sore!!
  • 3 3
 it's definitely photoshoped. look closer at the ride and the blurriness of his surrounding.
  • 1 4
 its called a zoom pull u silly billies, its a basic photography technique usually used on night shots to make lights streak, no photoshop just good skills with a camera, nice shot bro i bet it took a few tries to look this sweet
  • 0 2
 ahh, very true, didnt even think of that
  • 3 0
 Yeah that is the technique, but he clearly didn't do that, since the rider has absolutely no blur. Nicely photoshopped though!
  • 2 1
 the technique is to take a long exposure photograph while zooming with the subject, so the subject stays in focus but the background blurs. so the guy would have taken the picture as he was zooming out, keeping the biker in focus, making the biker be vibrant and the background blur. don't argue unless you know what you're talking about.
  • 1 1
 nope, it is photoshopped Big Grin if the photographer would have used the zoom technique, the rider would still be blurred because when he zooms in/out the rider would get bigger/smaller causing it to blurr. the photographer would have to move closer while zooming to make it work.
you can also tell its photoshopped because you can see the layers. 1 layer in the back where there is the trees (normal pic) and the other on top making the effect.

 its cool but not pod worthy in my eyes
  • 4 2
 boo photo shop
  • 4 6
 really dont like the photo or the editing. the style isnt too good either. dont think it should have made pod.
and whats up with all the dipshits writing racist comments and giving negative props?!?! Big Grin
  • 1 1
 Is thread pic of the day or photoshop of the day? Lets keep it somewhat real!
  • 1 1
 Nice effect, but POD's shouldn't be photoshopped like this, in my opinion. They should just be straight biking photos.
