 this just doesnt add up but funny none the less

 nah, it does quite easily. The water is out of focus coz of the shallow DoF, but reflection is sharp coz he's focused on the rider & to focus on reflections you need to focus as far into the puddle as the rider is & not on the surface. f*ckin brilliant use of it having the rider & reflection in one. Really nice work man! Love it!

 i completely agree on the photographic side of things, but the angles of the reflection are what dont add up, as in for this to be real the quarter has to be the mellowest thing youve ever seen

 if you look www.pinkbike.com/photo/4653642

brian took the picture using the grinding box and not a quarter. he miswrote about the quarter.

 even so, the ramp is some way away from the fencing, however in this "reflection" it is made to look as if the top of the ramp is basically at the base of the tree. so if there were a reflection it wouldnt look like this

 Cosmossss, I can promise you that the reflection is exactly how it's supposed to be. Why would you say the quarter has to be mellow? Half of it is hidden by the out of focus water & reflection & long lenses compact perspective & without the fence in the reflection you loose all the depth & that's why it looks flat in the reflection, but has depth in the rest of the park. Believe me, I shoot enough to see when things like this are fake & this is not one of those times.

 No No No. Its @ f/2.2 so there is a super shallow depth of field. the coping is blurred and i got right at the water level. i honestly was not expecting it to do this, but i am telling the truth. no joke. it is on my camera for those of you who dont believe me.

 Wow man, this is such a great shot, you should sell it ride away to a big company, this is as good as it gets. Great work!
  • + 1
 thanks man! haha any ideas on who to maybe sell it to?
  • + 3
 your welcome.

Look at his bikeparts, try any company on there and you might even want to try getting him a sponsorship also haha. just ask like 500 to a 1000 euro for a commercial license for about 1 year. Depending on how big the company is and what they want to do with it ofcourse.
If they say no or they only give you bikeparts or they only want to put your name under the shot, just say NO. Or try to make some other deal with them a good deal! Nobody want's to spend money, but with a killershot like this a brand can make alot of money, so sell it with this in mind. Your doing the company a favor, not the other way around. It's their los if they deside not to buy it. And this photo is timeless, so I would try it every year Razz

This is what I would try to do, other photographers might be having other ideas?

And if that doesn't work, try magazines all around the world, they have their own prices most of the time, but if you sell it exclusive to one magazine in every country or whatever, you could make some nice cash to buy yourself some new gear or whatever.

You don't have to try sell every shot you make, and for me, it's not all about making money, but if you have a sick shot like this, you got to cash it in to show it of haha.

I still can't believe how beautifull this photo is. Wow!
