 Notice how now Ian hylands is adding a foot note that no one bitches about the pods and when one does they get neg propped amiditly. Grow some balls pinkbike people, we all have a opinion. Personally it's a ok pod and a break from the norm, but that's all

 That's such a sweet and smooth trail they got going down in Vancouver. But theres so many trails in british columbia its endless.

 j-maul, that's a great observation, I don't want to stop people from expressing their opinions, and I like to hear what people have to say about photos. As long as it's not simply "I could do better" or "shouldn't be POD"

 ^ Pro Photographer. Really awesome shot, props to Margus and the rider. Also stoked to see the little footnote as well from Ian, or whoever chooses the photo. I think this needs to be added to the VOD's as well. -ep

 I love the fact that we have an explanation for why each photo has become POD. Ian says it all here, I don't think I'm ever going to read the comments on a POD again.

 its different, no triple tail whips or backflips like everyones used to, but it has amazing colours and the arial view looks really cool i personally think ian hylands has a great taste, definitely POD worthy to me

 who knew that taking pics could make some donkeys nuts. its just a picture. these are not the cure for cancer just somethings that others thought would look good on film and want to share them with others. i have always busted chops on pics until some rickys started busting on mine. i have changed my tune. i will never pick on someone elses picsd just cuz i dont like them. take it for what they are and stop acting like they are world changers.

 So now there will be a short explanation of why a certain photo gets POD ? That's a good idea tup Edit:
ha ha, I didn't even notice it under few previous PODs Big Grin

 Great picture in my exceptionally amateur opinion. BUT Ian, tell me its not hilarious that by putting a few of your thoughts underneath the picture you have changed the entire dynamic of POD comments forever..

 I'm sorry, but this doesn't deserve POD. Don't get me wrong, it's a good shot, but it is merely a cool sequence shot at a cool point of view. I don't think that this is a special shot, I especially don't think it deserves POD. They need to pick more user shots, rather than their photographers. I'm not saying my photos deserve POD, but they need to pick more user PODS.

 @ C1223 I'm not b******* about it, I'm just expressing an opinion. I am happy that Pinkbike does this for us, I just think differently than you. I'm sorry there's something bad about that to you, that I can't tell my views.

 @Morsinator - your comment is kind of funny 'it's merely a cool sequence shot at a cool POV'. Isn't that kind of the point of photography - find something visually interesting and capture it?

I do agree more user PODs would be cool, but I prefer to see the 'best' shots to give everyone something to aspire to

 @Morsinator, not debating your opinion of the photo, but your statement that Pinkbike needs "to pick more user shots, rather than their photographers." is based on what? I just looked at the last 48 POD photos and there were 2 including this one. That's about 4%, hardly even worth mentioning. People comment on my photos every day that they should be POD but they're not, and that's part of the reason. If you want to see pro photographer shots you can search for them easily if you want to see them, we don't need to fill POD with pro photos. Pinkbike is a user site, so we run primarily users photos, 95% of the past 120 photos to be precise...

 ^^ Well said, this year I'm aiming to get pod, haha

 @IanHylands, I guess your right. I neglected to look at the previous PODs, and instead just threw out random comments that were false and accusing. It's my bad, sorry about this everyone...
