 No its a Epic Shot. I love how the close tree on the left is blurry but then where he is its like High def,... one day that'll be me!

 I feel like the "Crispness" of this photo is destroyed by the blurry tree on the left, Am I rite?
  • 4 5
 The rider is Crisp and that's the main feature? The photogragher could just crop that blurry tree out too?

 FregoS- it's called depth of field. It's hard to have different spaced objects in exactly the same focus. Grab a camera and try to get action shots, then you'll understand!!

 that picture is pretty off the hook, whoever said its photoshopped... just go and get your colouring book and crayons... ofcourse the pictures get touched up with a computer, it still doesnt make the picture look any less gnarl.

 Really sweet photo guys.

 a blindside or bottlerocket

 I think it's a bottlerocket... you take a blindside with a fork like boxxer or 40...

 Hey, Taylor-BMX, It may not suit you BMX style, but if you look at some of the comments above, you might find out that most peole think this is a awesome POD!!!

 Dirtbagluvin, I know its impossible, thats why he shoulda cropped it out. I own a canon 500d, so I have grabbed a camera once or twice in my life...
  • 1 1
 Why take out a tree when it doesn't detract from the focal point though?!! 500d or not!! Whoever takes the pic decides how to finish it and that is artistic expression at its finest!!
  • 1 2
 Ohhhh... SNAP!
  • 1 1
 Okay... I meantioned my camera cause you said that I should grab a camera and try it myself. I know it doesn't detract from the focal point, but it is so noticeable that it almost becomes a focal point itself. Of course the artist can do it the way he wants, but for fucks sake it was my opionion. Respect it, deal with it.
  • 1 1
 Looking at your....um.....pics......about that 500d.....um.....yeah!! Where are YOUR pics again?!!
  • 1 1
 Dude, I dont wanna fight, I don't understand, why you want to fight about my opinion. The pictures in my profile are 2 years old, If you'd just check the date and taken by my friends camera. I just got the 500d about a week or 2 ago. And yes, I have used a camera before that.

I don't want to fight about this, you obviously want to be right here, so ok. The picture is the best! I have no real opinion of it. It's the best picture in the internet and you can't make it better! Couldn't have made a better pic! (It really is a good pic.)

 now that is what you call a "Rider Owned" Company!
  • 6 1
 Yeah, no wonder their bikes are amazing, the owner understands how the bike is going to be ridden and even he rides it that way.

 thats my dream bike.... and thats an epic photo and my new pod

 Its cool to see the owner of a bike company getting out and using his product well

 i like the fact that transition is owned by people that ride and not all the corperate in it for the money tipes big props to transition well done fpor getting pod
  • 2 0
 Great pod. I think what makes it pod is that it makes you look at it and think "hmm...that looks like a hard, scary jump"...surely accomplished that.
  • 1 0
 Yes it is the cheese grader at black rock. great riding and all but not POD worthy. once again not to be a hater cause its one of my favorite hits at black rock. i just thought POD should be for more epic hits.
  • 1 0
 I was there yesterday! Great shot, that feature is hard to get really good pics of, the angles are limited by how steep the hill is.
  • 3 3
 Sweet shot, but man, we have seen 3/4 angle shots of this drop too much... someone needs to find a new angle.
Props to the rider, and transition, though for being so steezy!

 2 of my favorite things in one picture, Black Rock and Transition bikes
  • 2 1
 70-200 f-2.8?
  • 2 3
 most likely. Most overused lens in the action sports industry by far..
  • 4 2
 Then I should buy one too! WOOHOOOO
  • 3 4
 didn't realize you could overuse a lense just for the sake of it
  • 2 0
 You have to admit, it really is a versatile lens...
  • 3 0
 yeah it is a sweet lens. Maybe overused wasn't the best word. How about popular
  • 1 0
 ofcourse it's popular, it's white! haha. i think it's very versatile for the range it offers as well, but i'd rather have a wider lense for most shots i want. i'd personally rather have a 24-70mm before that, a range often needed for biking. i'm not saying it's not on my wish list, just not first in line for what I need for most shots
  • 1 0
 Well, the Nikon 70-200 is black...which is what this dude uses... haha Razz
  • 1 0
 yup, haha. i'm rockin canon, durrrr
  • 1 0
 Woohoo, I just spent $2300 on a new 70-200mm f2.8 IS USM today.
Time to get my photo on
  • 1 0
 How is it?
  • 1 0
 haha, was that choice insprired by the above comments? which brand?
  • 1 0
 Yes, yes it was and it's a canon.
The guy was like
"You know this is a professional lens right"

My response
"I just want to take photos with this lens, even if I have no experience. Just sell me the lens buddy"
