 Very nice!!

 HDR mofo!
  • + 9
 to the common moron (myself)....whats HDR?
  • + 63
 High Dynamic Range, a photo editing technique that takes 3 or more of the same image and combines them together to get the best parts of every image into one amazing pic. you take a picture 3 or so times , but with different shutter speeds. some say it's supposed to make the picture more life-like but it takes time to actually see it like that. in this picture, the photographer took 3 or more pictures, combined, to get the perfect capture of the 3 main things, the guy, the mountains and the clouds.

 that is so totally sick that has to be p0d

 pretty sure this isn't real HDR. there wouldn't be such strong shadows. not to mention there's some definite editing around the rider. just heavily edited

 the editing around the rider is the programs fault

 i think we should get a word from our editor

 nice use of hdr, shame the halo is so big

 thanks man

 I think this is more of a tone-mapped picture, than HDR, eh.
  • + 5
 Im guessing its a pseudo HDR, so from a single RAW. So your half right.
  • + 2
 with a single raw file this would take 5 minutes to edit in lightroom
  • + 1
 Yea lightroom is good for this stuff, it costs 200 quid to buy though Blank Stare

 To kaibrabo. Not only shutter speed. F-stop for depth of field, WB for color, and ISO for intensity.

 I just started photography and editing there so i have a rough idea of what you guys are talking about.
  • + 10
 Hey guys, I took/edited this pic and wanted to disclose how it was edited. It's a 3 exposure, handheld, bracketed, HDR composite. It was processed in photomatix pro and some colour adjustments were made in aperture. No photoshop was involved. Thanks for the support.

 That is a freaking cool edit, I'm liking the heavy overcast thats above him and then the clearness behind the mountains. Colors really stand out in this.

 Man very few POD's come along without riding. but this is definitely one that should be. nice picture, a good HDR. doesn't look way processed just assembled

 RIDING SHOULD = POD

 i have a picture of me at whistler around the same spot where he is standing ! Amazing photo.

flag TC-BMX (Dec 4, 2009 at 8:38) (Below Threshold)
 Not really sure why people like this one. Way over processed IMO (seems to definitly be a RAW conversion and not a true HDR). The mountains and valley below seem to have a nice big blue splotch on them and the clouds while being "super shadowy" look flat.

Personally i think it could be better with less processing. But thats just my 2 cents. Nicely composed shot though

For those talking of photoshopping around the rider all i can tell is the halo around him but thats an artifact of the RAW processing.
  • + 1
 TC-BMX, the photographer said he took 3 exposures at diff settings, so that would be a true HDR.

shit pic?? look whose talking. Ur telling me that this is a shitty pic, when u r uploading pics of paintball guns and airsoft pistols on pinkbike??

this is an awesome HDR !! congrats Smile
  • + 3
 hahaha, whats up with Hockeyplayer?
  • + 2
 dont get me wrong, i love HDR's, but i think this one is a little much. awesome shot, but maybe back off on the clouds a bit.
  • + 2
 awesome pod, the scenery is close to perfect. the only thing is maybe if he was actually riding...
  • + 1
 bout time a good HDR made it to POD THIS IS EPIC!!! lol
  • + 2
 it looks good, but IMHO it's over edited, I would like to see the picture in it's raw form
  • + 1
 wow so epic congrats on the POD Smile
  • + 1
 Wow, crazy colours!
  • + 2
 it looks kinda "plastic" to much if you see what i mean

 Bit poor on the editing fron tbh, I would never save a hdr with a halo that big. Ruins the picture for me.
  • + 1
 Nice HDR

 hmmmm, im not a fan of this pic. the diference in lighting and colouring just doesnt go well with me
  • + 3
 renorider40 your not very smart i hope you know> next time you say something have proof to back your big mouth up. One its not fake its 3 shots putt together. Two, the rider cant be fake einstein, and three just cause you are jealous you try to bring down the person your jealous of who happens to be in the middle of an epic pic. I have one thing to say GET OFF pinkbike.
  • + 6
 Awesome HDR! Love it! Would be sweet in a higher resolution for a wallpaper or something.
  • + 7
 THAT IS EPIC POD STATUS!

 I'm just beginning to learn photoshop. If you don't mind me asking, how did you go about editing this photo from the original version?
  • + 4
 google HDR photography and you'll see how
  • + 5
 That is so dope man. POD
  • + 1
 I like it but just a few pointers if i may - there is a massive halo around the rider which needs masking out. also there a lot of noise which is easily removed with something like noise ninja, and if you're shooting in high altitude where the air is thin you could do with getting a skylight filter, which will get rid of the blue shadows (or you can try using the temperature slider to warm it up a bit).

keep 'em coming
  • + 2
 i agree. its not fake, its just not what you can see with your eyes naturally. The Idea of HDR is genius. I wish i had HDR eyes !!!!
  • + 1
 Very good shot. rarley see HDR'S on here and of this quality is pretty sweet congrats on the POD aswell. could be a hard HDR for biking to beat i think, bearing in my you very rarley see MTB HDR images.

 I don't know ... it seems like be photoshoped. Look on the right side on this photo ... the cloud almoust touch the ground, and the edge of the cloud is very sharpen.

If i wrong, im very sorry Wink

 I gotta say this is an awesomely epic shot. Nice work with the HDR. tup I've also got to say that people go way too crazy about HDR photos, just because they look so surreal.
