 colourful???

sweet pic and a nice ride, possible pod?
  • 31 10
 I think this could end up being POD the pic has nice scenery and the rider is using the most of his suspension!!
  • 17 6
 good quality.
  • 15 3
 such vivid colors, and such a nice fish eye lens, definitely deserves POD.
  • 12 5
 nice work and use of fish eye

 back to the dh shots,but a good one makes you feel the course shows the tech and theres been good pod variety lately.

"give me negative props if you want"

 Whoa, hold on, he is going fast?? No way... down the hill too...Gasp.

 Am I the only one who noticed the fact that the dead pine tree in the background has a kink in it? The spruce in the foreground has one too, but it isn't quite as noticeable due to the fact that it has bushy branches. Looks like the photo was tilted and then the trees in the background set vertical to make the trail look steeper than it actually is.

It's a crisp photo, and I understand that most shots these days have some photo editing with colour modification or cropping, but to try and deceive us by tilting and the "straightening"...That's lame.

 no squadouche its just part of the fish eye lens thing. it will make a natural curve look like a severe curve/kink

 woah, i agree with roberm. block out that tree with your hand and tilt your head a bit sideways and you can see how he could take relatively flat terrain and make it look steep. im not saying for sure that it has been done but it would also explain why the rider doesnt seem to be leaning too far back on his bike and there isnt much compression in his forks.
  • 7 1
 Thanks for you comment sr-wrecksalot, I particularly enjoyed that part where you started calling me names. That was awesome, and shows how rad and hardcore you really are. I am aware that the photographer used a fisheye lens. However I have a lot of experience using that sort of equipment, and the lens doesn't produce that sort of disjointed image, instead it produces a smooth rounded continuous curve.
  • 2 3
 to be honest mate, yer i'll agree with ya about the way it's taken but who caresSmile

 calling you a name was my favorite part of my comment too! i am rad and hardcore....sweet. ive shot with some fisheye's in my day also and if you catch a curve at the edge of the lens that is going the same way as the curvature of the "fisheye" then it makes the curve look severe...however, i could be wrong, at least i got ur panties in a wad squadouche
  • 1 2
 I think the lens is curved thats why the trees look like there on an angle

 olieup, that saying got old after the first 2000 times i heard it on pinkbike
  • 3 2
 i was at that race and (for the people who are saying tilt your head and squint) it actually is steep and the rocks are gnarly big! his suspension is probably on the rebound or still in the process of compressing.

also, to those of you saying hes not leaned back far enough, you dont have full control over your bike when you are in the safety position and your front end can wash out way easier, therefore his forward position shows that he's a good rider and knows what he's doing.

now that i've voiced my opinion on that.... this picture is sick! i love how vibrant it is and it sort of catches the action. very worthy POD!

 who cares it is a pic if he tilted it who cares, it is a nice pic if it was tilted or not!

 fisheye's are curved.......................

 Ive gotta disagree. Its all about the photo, because it is photo of the day. This is a sick picture and the riding is great aswell. I see no reason why pics like this should not be pod worthy. It doesent matter weather it is dj, bmx or downhill. Its all riding so its all good!
  • 10 1
 dude thats a V-10
  • 7 4
 i agree with "ash-isnt-hear-right-know" , all of the PODs are DH and full susser stuff, its like this site is turning into pink-downhill instead of pinkbike, i agree that some of the DH pics are nice, but common, its getting boring!

 Lenny, feel free to disagree, but loads of the same gets repetitive ad boring, put a variation in it!!! and josh has a point, most of them dont ride away and pose for the camera, real riding is captured when the rider doesnt know!!!!
  • 1 2
 i know wat ya mean about POD's being DH so if you wanna change that get more street pics that are worthy of a POD:P (i know there a loads which are but get more. there are loads of DH pics that could be a POD but there are sooooo many) There are just more DH pics so change it if your not happySmile

 are you kidding? you think this dude POSED for the camera in the middle of his RACE run? you really are retarded.
  • 4 3
 I like the pic, dude is f*cking cooking it, but blue gear with a green bike? Really? I'm not the show "What Not To Wear", but that looks f*cking brutal. If you can afford a Fox 40 fork, you can afford another set of f*cking riding gear. Maybe black next time? Looks like a smurf humping a lime. My eyes are offended.

 Josh is right, its getting boring, POD should be different not all DH, its getting silly now, put some trails, sick bmx pics, hell ill even settle forfuckin trials, cos its DIFFERNT, i know quite a few of you are worried about differnt things but its on the internet , not your LIFE!!!!!
  • 4 4
 LOL! nicely said ash, but so soo true!, i havnt seen a park POD in aaggeess! because instead...ITS DH!!! wasnt the whole idea for POD a creative yet good picture...i mean common, most of the PODs these days are the same..."wwhhay i can go really low on a berm" wtf?! people have just coppied that idea, and using it for there backstage pass to POD, big up with the inventive stuff, not the coppied shit!!
  • 1 1
 lol u think these guys know eachother? cus i do. and i totaly disagree, josh and ash, does it realy matter if the recent pods are dh/full sus? who cares, there all great examples of sweet riding. dh and full sus kick ass just as much as dj or park/street. get ur cocks out of eachothers arses

 pod dosent have to be some fancy insane trick that a guyy can pull off. pod can be a guy standing there over beautiful BC mountains and scenery. this is definatly pod worthy. sure it may not be "showing off any skills pic" but the scenery makes up for it and makes it a beautiful pic. as stated in the last post Smile
