 It does look damn good. And kudos for stating it's been tilted; as long as it isnt an attempt to decieve then I guess there's no problem.

 cockermouth lol, that has to be a joke

 hahah seriously

 nope...it comes from the days of cock-fighting(chickens)...after a fight the owner (cocker)would clean the blood from their birds head by sucking it...it's where the phrase cock-sucker originated. there are some much worse place names around the country believe me.

 how could you get worse than cockermouth??

 Nice picture, nice moment, but not sure if a POD quality, the picture is out of focus, a lot of too dark areas and the crop isn't so great too... sorry if I displease someone, but this is my point of view
  • 4 2
 agreed...if i was going to pick a pic from my album for POD i wouldn't of chose this

 POD....sick shot and i dont even like downhill that much!!!

 cant fault the dude takin the picture for tryin to take a good shot.............which he did
  • 25 24
 Wow, this is so much different from PODs or really any shot I have seen before. I like it a lot though, sick shot! The goggles look sweet too!

And proxx, the rider is tilted; not the camera!
  • 20 1
 aaustin--camera is tilted about 30 degrees. look at the angle of the grass, the fern and the trail in the background. it doesn't matter though because tilting made the photo better. what's wrong with that?

 says in the blummin description anyway!

 this description was added after it became pod.
  • 7 6
 yeah you guys, i made a mistake, but i was just trying to justifie to proxx that its not a bad pic and it didnt work well. sorry guys

 did i even say it's a bad pic? Big Grin
  • 7 2
 Proxx, the description wasnt changed, look at my comment from a few days ago just a bit down, I make referrance to the guy admitting the tilted angle. Stop making things up to suit what you say.

 royals rule, your 18 dude, why dont you act it! it clearly states tilted! well done chris/sam.
  • 4 1
 royalsrule you are a freaking retard if he wasnt moving im pretty sure you would be able to see the tire tread theres always some retard that says its photoshopped and is wrong

 FFS!! Can folks chill the fk out! Too many fools acting as though everything should be catered to them! Song sucks, ride was to laxed, so on and so on. New rule; don't talk shit but submit something better or STFU! Don't like a song? Turn the volume down! Don't like the riding or a pic? Find another one!!! Sick of all these whinning lil btchs!! This is a sic photo...period! Cam tilted whatever! Looks fkn sic! Can I get an amen?
  • 0 0
 Brewtal12, yes you get an amen from me. I agree with you entirely, but I guess the ones that talk shit are the ones that would never have anything to submit anyway, alot of the negative comments on pinkbike come from people with no pics of their own.
  • 10 6
 POD? Its not quite worthy of that. Good pic, good riding but nothing special.

 POD, Great Pic. By the way royals rule, only the very immature would find the town of Cockermouth funny. And talking of resumes, I hope you remember to put the word "jerk" under your list of qualifications when you next have to fill one out.
  • 2 0
 Hey royalsrule the ferns wont be moving will they as objects DON'T move in photos thats why we have videos. Great pic by the way, you could be mistaken for a Pro in that shot
  • 2 0
 hahaha "if this was a real pic, the fearns would be moving". i just cant stop laughing at that one. i dont know why all of you dont like the picture, i actually think its pretty insaine.

 nice pic! but the photo is rotated with aprox 30 degree...
  • 4 0
 Huge composition and riding but way under exposed.
  • 1 0
 ...and the DOF is too short for this sort of shot. The rider's out of focus. It's underexposed, but from the looks of things, it was a pretty dull day anyways.
  • 3 0
 nice pod! I quite like the underexposed-look, kinda adds atmosphere. Royalsrule has putty for brains.

 killer pic, but it is rotated...
i'm not saying anything bad about rider/photographer, but the pic is tilted

look at the fern, they grow out in all directions and their outer leaves never grow straight up and down... no matter how steep the hill is... and check the rock by his front tire, that wouldve rolled down to the trough already if this corner is really this steep...

still a killer shot tho! it shows what we can keep working for!

Is this the same shot? ...

 i think it may just be my monitor but it looks like there is way too much contrast on this pic, and is also rather dark
  • 0 1
 fake angle picture... as the frenchy said, look at the fork, its not even compressed, of course its not compressed, the wheel is of the ground. but turn your monitor 30 degrees to the left and you got the true angle. i was doing the same shit for my tabletops a few years ago. so its not a pod for me!
  • 2 0
 read the description...I KNOW IT HAS BEEN TILTED...personally i also think this pic doesn't deserve POD, look at other pics in my album, this hardley compaires

 Nice photography... If only this kid didn't have his elbows locked and grabbing a fistful of brake

 nice picture a props to the camera man and the rider. I knoe im gettin neg comments for this but i dont think thats POD worthy but its still a nice pic, just not that nice

 Cool pic, it doesn't even look like Settez! Cockermouth is called Cockermouth because it is at the mouth of the river Cocker. Nothing to do with blood suckin, or cock suckin!!!

 etboarder, you are a jerk, why waste your time posting stupid comments. By the way even though you have no photo's I still think you should get POD - meaning prick of the Day!!! Great photo, well deserving of POD. I took a look at your album, it is full of great photo's, keep up the good work, you definately have the skill man.

 Nice pic... BUT .. this guy rotate the photo to take this effect...the grass growing whith 75degrees angle!!! sorry!
  • 0 1
 This photo doesn't do it for me. Why is he braking if it is such a "fairly big berm"? If he is pinnin'er, where's the dust at? I understand the dynamics behind tilting the camera, it just doesn't do this picture justice.

 i like all the downhill POD's but where the hell is the cameraman for some DJ !!!!!

 hey bro thats pretty baller. def pod material. propls to the photographer...perfect angle

 Yeah! this is pod material awesome photo and like FAIRHAVEN4LIFE said it is the perfect angle Smile
  • 1 2
 this is shit. I'm not trying to be a jerk but... the rider is soft, the camera is tilted, the colours arent good and the composition sucks. Im shure there were a lot of better photos added yesterday.
  • 1 3
 Just a few quick and objective points on this one:
1. Rider isn´t sharp at all
2. The composition is just wrong and doesnt work at all
3. Colours are nice, at least I think so
4. The pointless tilting doesnt help it anyways

But it looks like a fun trail.

 AMAZING MAN!!!! what a shot nice job for the rider and the photograph! do more of crazy photos and poD

 Turning this pic sideways still dosen't make it worth pod... and if this guy was haul'n into that berm, wouldn't there be a bit of dust behind him? This pic is a bit weak.

 i think everyone is over exaggerating a little, the berm is fairly big anyway and its a very fast bit of track, the camera man wasn't trying to create a 'fake' pic, he created something different, take a look at the other pics in my album, hes one hell or a photographer and rider, tilt the monitor to where you think it should be, the shot still looks cool in my mind
