 gay people dont ride bikes? what makes u say tht?

 yeah, what do you have against gays? what did they ever do to you?

 dubprof: you know it existed before 1932... it means good luck in budism and the rolling hammers of thor in norway. but i agree he probably put it cuz the nazis made it infamous.
also, the holocaust ended 64 years ago.. the amazing thing is there are still survivers alive i heard one at school in my holocaust and human rights class a few months ago.

anyhoo, nice pod.

 'lol its not right for a homosexual to ride a bike' that was sarcasm i dont see why it wouldnt be right.

 I meant being gay isn't right. I don't care what they do, but it's just not normal

 my advice is let it go. just let them be together cuz the world works in mysterious ways and you are going to just end up with a shitload of irony... and a gay child. you may not but it would be very ironic if you did.

 i think you should reread what ive said. i wasnt talking shit about gays. in fact it was the opposite in summary i was saying if that guy keeps thinking its wrong life is going to stab him in the back and his child is going to be gay. also if it was the metaphors that confused you i dont care cuz i used one in the previous sentence so use your brain buddy. also i agree with you. lol

 you may have also been confused by 'i dont see why it wouldnt be right.' i meant: i dont know why its wrong in your oppinion (suicidedownhiller)

 thats epic. nice lighting. im assuming you were not quite this close just used the zoom? either way really sweet. ive always wondered though dont the riders get pissed if you use a massive flash while there on there race run? cas thatd be hella distracting in a tech section
  • 3 0
 You learn to block that out.

 Its pretty hard to fake fish-eye with a zoom. You just don't get the effect. This guy was crazy close to the bike.
  • 0 0
 and yes it is hella distracting to have a flash blind you like that on your race run
  • 1 0
 you also would need and extremely high shutter speed to get it that clear from that angle. props to the photographer
  • 0 0
 The lens is also a 2.8 if I'm correct. Having a wider aperture lens definitely helps.

 nice bike, nice shot, awesome rider. and props dude wicked angle. welldone.
  • 0 1
 Well exposed and focus is nice in the center, an props for getting so close too - but not POD material in my opinion... The flash is distracting in the upper right; and there's not really any "important" visual information around the edges (what is there is distorted or blurred, and does not really add to the image).

I think a judicious crop of the center of the image would work much nicer. Great attempt though.
  • 1 1
 Are any of you actual photographers?
or do you just shout "POD"! at the first shiny pic?

This photo isn't well executed at all. The glare, blurriness and uncentered focus of attention ruin the shot.
