 crisp colours... awesome definition and great drifting = POD Big Grin

 good use of fisheye
  • + 12
 agreed, fisheye's are overused but it works really well here.
  • - 1
 yeah definately

 P to the O to the D

 such a clear picture! Great shot with the fish eye POD
  • + 7
 I find it strange when ppl say that a fisheye is overused. I'd say a 70-200mm is used way more, but you never hear anyone say that it's overused Razz haha ... must say that I did use mine a LOT when I 1st got it, but trying not to use it for a lil while.
  • + 7
 i got what you are sayin', eric,,, but for everyone is much easier to notice when a fisheye has been used... also, i know why you are defending the fisheye ~ because you're the biggest maniac for this lens hehehe,,, which is very good,,, and i am right after you! buehehe
  • + 12
 yeah, it just gets noticed coz of the cool distortion. I think it gets a bad rep coz ppl think you can forget about composition & just bend everything & make it look good on every shot, but we both know that's far from the truth. This pic has a great riding, compo, timing & contrast & that's what makes it good... the fact that you used a fisheye doesn't affect that at all.
Hahahaha, you know I have to defend it! Fisheye fiends forever! haha tup
  • + 5
 y hasn't this shot been POD? It's the f*cking best picture I've ever seen on PB!
  • + 7

 Thats one Evil Picture!

 CHECK OUT matti Lehiokoinens Facebook profile picture, its the same one. I think this is matti not filip polc
  • + 2
 I've lost count of how many Fort Bill POD's there are!
  • + 2
 Very cool Pod with awesome timing and colours. Podworthy!!
  • + 1
 he's just SLAYING that turn! sick!
  • + 4
 sweet photo, the only problem is that i dont like how his head is turned trying to look to see if it was a "roost" rather than looking where hes is going like he would during a run.
  • - 1
 im pretty sure hes making sure he doesnt fall off. he isnt looking back that far.
  • + 1
 looks like he's skidding to a stop rather than hitting the turn
  • + 3
 i dont think he fell off or is skidding, i just think he has just done this "roost" for the photo rather than during a practice or race run. Not that there is anything wrong with that
  • + 3
 at first i thought he was making a last ditch effort to stop before a jump lol.
  • + 1
 ameanguyabc, you have some serious issues
  • + 1
 POLC for sure Big Grin
  • + 0
 what, dragan?

 He is saying that is Filip Polc.

 im pritty shure hes riding a lapier my buddy has one its the only one in north amarica

 Smart and Brave Photographer + vary Brave and expert rider = POD......and thats what we have here ladies and gentalmen....Big Grin
  • + 1
 Zactrac...not really. Not scary to skid through a berm, and get a picture.
  • + 1
 well you know what i mean.....not anyone can get a shot like that,,,and no rider can do that when they please
  • + 1
 Possibly my fav pic ever
  • + 1
 I HATE this corner, its a complete bitch to get right when your shit like me =\

 I think this could be POD.
  • + 1
 It was a while ago bud.
  • - 3
 Well, I didn't know that. I just saw it and posted my opinion. Haha, I like how being inaccurate can get you negative props.
  • + 0
 yo Ben, just a hint, if you look under the shot it says whether it's been POD or not. So the neg props are prob from being unobservant & inaccurate. Razz
  • + 0
 I never noticed that before. Still kind of gay, but oh well. Thanks for the "hint". I'll be sure not to be so f*cking annoying next time.
  • + 1
 He's thinking 'SSSSSHHHIIIIIIIIIIIIITTTTT'
  • + 5
 I like your style that you have... Many pictures u see of events like this are very straight forward. When I looked at your album of pictures I saw alot more style in the imagery. It seemed like you try and keep it more artsy I dont know a better term for it, then most other photographers. I think that seperates u from most the rest of the photographers at these events and that is great!
  • + 4
 On the money there coralcorn! That's what separates a real photographer from someone that just owns a camera Wink
  • + 3
 yah man, U have the same thing. I feel its harder to shoot it more artsy at a event like a World Cup then when u are doing a personal photoshoot. Lugging everything around and wanting to shoot different areas f the course make it hard to find ur shot all the time so I give Lunatyk major props on these shots!
  • + 3
 yeah man, races are def way more difficult to shoot. Luckily most of the ppl go shoot the big gaps & leave the nice tech sections alone, so I rather shoot that at races than try to fight 1000 fans & spectators.
  • + 3
 yah. Shoot what isnt usually seen and that usually gets the biggest hits. This berm I feel like is shot alot but from the opposite side so this angle is new to me atleast!
  • + 6
 (P)erfect scenery
(O)utragerous drift Big Grin

 Sweet shot! Loving the contrast & the roost... cool that he's kinda looking backward too.

 If this doesnt get POD i dont know what could. thats awesome
  • + 2
 Yeeah man... finally made POD! Congrats, was only a matter of time with this one!
  • + 5
 Hoooowwww ! NICE ! POD for sure !
  • + 4
 That rider is Matti! He uses white shoes and Polc uses black ones. Allso that photo is in Matti´s facebook profile.
  • + 3
 its matti lehikoinen, you can tell by the Intense Tires:] he swears by them
  • + 3
 i wish i had a chance to use my EOS 30D at an event like that, maybe next year..
  • + 5
 Tidy as fuck.
  • + 2
 was wondering when this would get POD. One of the best shots I have sen for a while. Great timing, It doesnt even look like Fort William lol Smile x
  • + 4
 Im sure this will make pod! awesome!!
  • + 1
 you got a better quality version of this, this is Epic! i wana use it as my Macbooks wallpaper but the compression that pinkbikes uses leaves it a bit pixelated. leave us a message if you can send me one
  • + 1
 that looks like such a tough corner... seriously. it looks like you get a ton of speed into it, and then, you have to get it right, or you'll fall off like a 3 or 4 foot drop... haha sketch.

 POD !!!!!! nice Wink

 Love every part of this picture except that he is looking out of the corner.....to me it shows that it was a set up shot, and that he is probably more skidding than drifting. Still an amazing photo in every other aspect.
  • + 0
 im guessing its not a set-up shot, seeing as the photographer diddnt know exactly who the rider was, matti or filip
