 Does it matter if its fake?
  • + 7

  • + 99
 you can tell its fake cause hes flipping the wrong way round!
  • + 7

 wow great POD!!!!!!!!!!
  • + 36
 I'd have to say this pic is actually un-legit.
  • + 3
 Perhaps with everyone playing around with photo editing for the contest they decided to put up a PS'd POD.
  • + 5
 You can see it's fake for multiple reasons: The dirts look to soft and the used dirt has a big structure, big grain. The dirts have no tire prints on them, the shades on the dirts are so big and flat.

If you take a look at the drop, look at he vertical wooden pilers, on both you will see a shiny dot at the lower section, that must be nails, and nails don't come that big my friends.

The link above here, another photo from this shoot, you can see it's if you take a serious look at the lighting. You can see there has been used a light source to big to simulate a small strobe, the whole trails are lit while the background sky is exposed a few stops down. Point: you cant lit a whole trail like this (oke it could be lets be realistic) And the can't be lit it by the ambient while the background being exposed a few stops down.

Anyway, I totally love the way this has been done for sure! VOD for sure.

 Technically if her were to hit the drop then the dirt jump, this would have to be a frontflip.... lol decent photoshop

 out of every single pod i have ever seen this is DEFFENTLY the best one

 nunukula that is one of the best things ive seen on hear

 ya it looks sick but i think it probably should have photoshoped so the guy is facing the right direction lol
  • + 0
 if G.I. Joe rode DJ he looks like a toy
  • + 0
 you can also tell by the focal length, if everything is blurred in the backround that much, the there would only be a small part of him in focus, in this pic, the entire rider and his bike are in focus...or he'd have to be verry high so that it would be everything but him in focus, you can even see its a macro lens..so this and everything that people previously mentioned show how photoshopped it is..but i give the photographer props for the lighting...lay off the photoshop a bit, it's not true photography

 @Chamakazi - It is actually called a Fakie Flip. Executed by either skill or photoshop.

 looks like.. chocolate cake for dirt .. mhm
  • + 1
 By fake, you all mean "Not a real rider or real dirt jumps" right? If you go back and look at Mene's album this photo is in, it CLEARLY shows this is all very artistically set up soley for the purpose of photography. www.pinkbike.com/photo/5667350 He used what looks like pretzels for the drop/step up, thats what that shiny glare is,, salt! =P
there was minimal photoshopping in this photo if there was any,

To be able to turn just a spoonful of dirt, and a toy rider into a picture that looks argueably REAL, I'd say he did a Great job of capturing this image.
  • - 1
 You need a bigger monitor. The rider isn't a toy. The photoshopping is compositing a pic of a REAL rider together with a shot of REAL tiny jumps.
  • + 0
 @Xenon - When I said Fakie I was referring to the reverse orientation of the rider ... which is even more cool if you are riding on chocolate cake.
  • + 2
 This also reminds me that were coming up on Ginger Bread house time of the year. Maybe there should be a friendly duel to see who can build the best Ginger Jumps and Gumball Gaps, BMXers could join in too with little candy cane grinds and licorice coping. I think it is a great idea!

 HEY EVERYONE DID YOU NOTICE THAT THE RIDER DOING THE BACKFLIP IS BACKWARDS... IF HE WERE TO LAND THE JUMP HE WOULD LAND BACKWARDS... SO THATS PROOF THAT IT HAS BEEN PHOTOSHOPED

 Look at the Description Its "mini dirt, anything is possible" of course its not real and he never claimed it was, its just playing around for a laugh with Photo shop. Its still sick lookin so stop being such sad prats and poking holes in everything and just enjoy it for what it is, a dammed good POD
  • + 2
 i think half of the people that comment on this think it's real, if you all look at the 9th comment down it's this:

R-OCallaghan (Oct 4, 2010 at 17:02)
no its photoshop www.pinkbike.com/photo/5667350

and u can tell it's photoshop to begin with, u don't have to make a hugh explanation why.
  • + 1
 everyone is explaining how this is photoshopped and you dont even have to get into details because just look at the guy. wtf is he doing? its not a backflip unless hes goin from landing to jump, and its not a front cause hes not tucked at all. basically, hes not even going the right f*cking way lol
  • + 2
 I love how people can't tell this is photoshopped, along with him flipping the wrong way, and no it cannot be a front flip either...Either way, you did a great job on it, and it looks good.
  • + 6
 great photoshop skills

 Nice Photoshop skillz, but I don`t think this even qualifies as a photo!
  • + 2
 100% agree!

 Very creative I first thought this was real but then i realized the Made mini dirt jumps like this but never thought of Shopping a real person into it. KIU!!

 wow, i was gonna beak buddy for making a fake and then i saw 50million people already did that. So props on creativeness dude! It reminds me of Team America, but with bikes, haha!!! Epic dude!

 Looks like the trails are from the set of Thunderbirds or something...a little model world! Pretty unique i guess, but quite obvious its a model with the rider shopped in there.
  • + 1
 I think you're all just looking at it wrong; you're assuming he dropped in off the ladder. He's coming from the other direction, backflipping, then stepping up to the ladder… Smile
  • + 4
 Um...the picture is fake...So why the f*ck is it POD?
  • - 2
 It's called a photo (in this case 2 photos) you stupid shitstain... And I guess it could be fake provided it wasn't taken with a camera... Ohh wait that's not possible... Stick to draggin you ass clown, I'm sure you'll be a legend... Firebirds for life (Fart sounds)...
  • + 2
 It's f*cking fake dumbass. Are you actually so stupid? If the rider never hit those jumps (he couldn't as they are model size) then it doesn't deserve a POD. Do you need further clarification?
  • + 1
 It is 2 photos you douche...Then put together in photoshop... Neither are fake... I like the guy who calls everyone on pinkbike stupid or dumb or retarded when he wins by far... Whatever gets the votes gets POD... Do you need further clarification? Go work on your car chump...
  • + 1
 NO SHIT. It's still fake moron. He didn't jump those jumps. Did he? You are seriously dense. Stop talking about my car. What does that have to do with anything?
  • + 1
 Your car is just awesome that's all... AWESOME... Plus you know so much about photography I would really like to get some insight... Like the whole "He didn't hit those jumps so it's fake " thing... So if I take a photo of some jumps that nobody has hit it means that photo is fake... hmmm interesting... Seriously post some more photos of your car dude...

 So when someone photoshops a porno stars cock in between Britney Spears legs it means that picture is real? She really has a ten inch cock? Wow. You learn something new every day. Thanks for enlightening me.
  • + 2
 The photos themselves are not fake, even in the britney situation.. How are you not understanding this? Oh wait your the guy who likes to get beligerent to people he doesn't know, about shit he knows nothing about... I like you dude, you're a tenacious little f*ck... The photo was never supposed to mislead anyone, the people that didn't realize it was post processed obviously have no eyes... It says it's a mini setup right in the info... To be fake it needs to mislead people and you and I both knew the situation in the photo didn't happen but it doesn't make the photo fake... Get it fool...
  • + 1
 I know a hell of a lot more about photography and photo shop than you. Guaranteed. I studied photography as a minor for 4 years.

I never said it mislead anyone...did I? So stop being a presumptuous fool. It's fake. If I post a picture of my car photo shopped on to Laguna Seca it is fake. I was never there. My car was never there. Even if I said "this never happened" and didn't mislead anyone IT'S STILL FAKE. Stop arguing such a stupid point. You are wrong.

 You are amazing... You just said you know a hell of a lot more about photography than me... Then you belittled me for being a presumptuous fool... You son, are a dirty hypocrit... It is a photo of your car shopped to a photo of laguna seca, neither photo is fake.. The only thing fake is the action depicted in the combination of the 2 photos... I'm done with you...

 JOO R STOOPID. Thanks for realizing how amazing I am. Makes me feel better about myself.

 Guys Guys Guys it's a new photo technique, I'm seeing it everywhere. They use photoshop and blur out everything except the rider. That way it gives the perception that the jumps are model size. I see it used in music videos everywhere. They used it in a Thom Yorke vid. The flash work also helps with giving it the fake look. But I would give my left nut if the photo wasn't real with some photoshop work.
  • + 3
 ok...... so who are you giving your left nut to? Cause its on the chopping block....

 How the heck does a fake pic get POD? Where is the integrity?
  • + 2
 Shit. Its Photo of the day. Not Photoshop of the day.
Where's his shadow too?
And if he was flipping and looking where he is, he'd be dead.
  • + 0
 obviously it's not how it happened in reality, but I wouldn't call it fake. The photographer meant for it to look how it looks, he's not "faking" anything. "Too bad it's photoshopped!1!" Why? Who cares if it's photoshop, would you rather he took two pictures and cut them out with scissors?
I say keep being creative and having fun with your images! If you don't claim it to be "real," then it really can't be fake!
  • + 1
 Montagem, ele não estaria nessa posição saltando com front ou backflip, só se ele caisse de fake

Assembly, he would not be in that position by skipping with front or backflip, only if he were to fall for fake
