 Whip Crackin! Btw, BobbyBriers must be a spandex monkey... Those superduper shots of them taken with a happysnapper going down a single track with fear in their eyes, a butterfly and some pebbles probably makes him cream his spandex longs... I've seen better POD from the Palmer ranch too, but this is the best of the day, and pretty damn cool so stop whimpering, go eat an energy bar and take a spin on your trainer man! Fo**en Prawn! Yeee Hawww Prof Palmer these peeps obviously aren't photographers!!! loving these shots!

 I wouldn't call it a POD, I'm not a negative asshole, and I'll probably get negative props for this, but I'm just saying this isn't much an eye-catcher and the colour is poor, props to the rider but the photo wasn't much.

 This pic is pretty cool, Just would maybe have a different Angle and make it clearer for pod, But hey, Its not photoshopped like most the shit on here. so props dude. Also @-FoRREST-SS, I was riding down my sidewalk the other day, I smashed into a BMX'er I was on my Kona Stinky, He faceplanted into the Cement. I said, f*ck BMX'ers and just kept going. He didnt get up.

 cool pic as far as lighting and stuff, but come on I can whip better than that. This is one of the first PODs I genuinely think shouldn't be POD. Here come the neg props because I stated my opinion.

 This is not worth to be POD, I think. Everything is deformed in a random way, it's not that de deformation adds something positive to the photo and those 2 people in the background are annoying to look at. The rider nor the bike look sharp. No POD in my eyes. I'd even say this is not a photo made by Eric Palmer.

 it's called fish eye. dude. chill.
  • 7 14
flag RobbyBriers (Sep 25, 2010 at 8:32) (Below Threshold)
 I don't care whether it is wide angle or fisheye. In this case, the deformation doesn't add to the photo, so it's ridiculous. That is my statement concerning the use of a very wide lense. It's not that it was needed at that spot, because there is no valuable information on the photo in or near the edges. Now, you probably don't care, because all you do is chill?

 this POD is so sick the fisheye just makes it amazing and im lovin the people in the backround, so much valuable information on the photo
  • 6 13
flag RobbyBriers (Sep 25, 2010 at 9:38) (Below Threshold)
 No there isn't any. A simple whip, a usual point of view, not enough sharpness (or if you prefer not enough unsharpness either). A fisheye does not make every photo look amazing. People on a photo usually add a suggestion of life, but here there's one behind the front wheel of the bike, which makes it very messy. The backpack and the orange vest also disturb my attention that should go to the rider.

 its broad day the flash wouldent have that much effect surly? also how would there be a flash from behind him ?

 Hey, thanks obee1!

G1993, I use remote triggers for my flashes & had 2 set up for this, that & the camera I use has a faster sync speed than most, so it allows me to use flash better in bright light. The shot is not photoshopped at all, only RAW adjustments.
