 This has to be POD Epic
  • 39 5
 Massive. Eek
  • 200 19
 First off
No-one said "F*ucking epic"
I said epic
And if you do look epic up in the dictionary you'll find that it says "very imposing or impressive; surpassing the ordinary (especially in size or scale); "an epic voyage"; "of heroic proportions"; "heroic sculpture""
Which funilly enough makes sence to me
  • 115 9
 Or if you do go to your beloved dictionary.com
Epic as an adjective
4. of unusually great size or extent: 'a crime wave of epic proportions'.

Still makes sence to me

 EPIC argument!! Wink

 This isnt a Grammer Bitching Session, who cares if you enjoy the photo or not..Its Dam High and Dam Stylish

 its epic!!!

 bougs, as sugested i visited dictionary.com and found amoung the definitions relating it to poetry this:

epic

adjective
1. very imposing or impressive; surpassing the ordinary (especially in size or scale); "an epic voyage"; "of heroic proportions"; "heroic sculpture"
2. constituting or having to do with or suggestive of a literary epic; "epic tradition"



This picture is very imposing and impressive, and the whip is surpassing the ordinary, therefore i deem it to be epic

  • 11 0
 It's a whip, if it was a 3 his bike would be heading the same direction as his head is facing. Such a dope shot though, I would even say, EPIC. Amazing photography for sure.

 Has that been edited? (i.e. sharpened, brighter contract etc.); just the bike? If not that's one hell of a camera.
  • 1 0
 Sorry this Reply is so late, i was just going through the comments. Its shot with a 50mm f1.8 and i think shot at around 1.8 so that makes it super sharp. it has a little contrast on it, but not much. mainly good flash placement. One flash to the right, of the lip and one in the middle of the jump on the left. Its not one hell of a camear, Its a Nikon D70, which is one of the worst and oldest nikons you can buy..
