 getsomesy,

Congratulations on winning comment of the day! Unfortunately, the award is less than prestigious and was selected by another unappreciative fool like yourself, leaving plenty of room for your winning comment to be flawed.

Firstly, Photo of the Day is an emphasis on photography. If the picture was fantastic and involved riding in any way, shape, or form, it would be qualified. Obviously you have no appreciation for photography; you should know, however, that it is an art form. Mr. Highlands and all of the photographers who have won and will win PoD are ARTISTS.

Secondly, do you honestly feel you can complain about the riding in this photo? Would you really call that anything but outstanding? If yes, I would love to see you attempt it and impale yourself on an out of focus branch right on a perfect third.

 Nice comments, all taken in, but i tend to focus on the poise, and talent of the riding in the picture more often than the surroundings its in, yes ill agree a lot of the time, the surrounding add to the proportiation i.e. the size of the rider compared to the section of track he/she is riding, natural beauty of the place, and intensity of the riding i.e. speed etc, but without decent riding there can be no point to a pod, but I say this is a well worthy P.O.D, extremely flat and well pulled of table, and ill agree, very epic background Big Grin

 i think the best comments are the ones with negative props because i always think "i wonder what this idiot has written this time..."

 when did pinkbike become so logical, and mature? Or are we just pretending to be that in order to not look like idiots?? I say be idiots!!! and let ourselves say, this pod is sick!!
instead of something along the lines of: well if you look precisely in the lefternmost corner at the unfocused bifocal tree perpetuated in midair, you can see that this shot exhibits quite outstanding pixilation from the riders perspective." from the perspective of a photographer that is really a 12 year old kid likes to "jump bikes". I guess if pinkbike is really getting smarter, well than, so be it. But I miss the stupid ass comments from a long time ago, they were hilarious.

 okay anyways lol, I can't believe i am being such a hypocrite, but i don't like the composition of this pod. it does a good job with the out of focus triangle part of the picture that points to the right as far as getting you eyes focused to the rider, but its not all about the rider. its about the big picture, and the way that the trees run vertically off of the picture take your eyes away from the center of the picture. Nothing draws your attention to the left corner bottom though or top left corner. and that leaves you feeling lopsided. i think ultimately, it would have been nice to do something there a little more fun, whether it was a branch that led back from the other side, or even a silly watermark there, it seems incomplete because of this.
The left side should be cropped out leaving a crisp picture and an overall good composition. just my 2 cents

 It's like the 'Tale of Scrotie Mcboogerballs' episode of south park. Don't look into things that aren't there. Just admire it for what it comes across as, a great photo. cheers.

 will this pod/not pod discussions ever change? i've started visiting pinkbike regularly only a few months ago and this is getting really boring. if you dislike the photo, just stfu. same thing goes in case you like the photo AND feel the urge to type something about erectile dysfunction. DO NOT F****** DO IT.
  • + 1
 Its a photo and a good photo. Does everything have to be perfect? It shows good riding and good photography skills. Thats all really. Don't study a photo like your going to get a grade for what you say. Don't make a photo more complicated than it should be! Sick POD man!

 I did not comment badly on the P.o.D... Its a nice p.o.d. don't get me wrong. And I ride, i'm not the guy behind the camera on the mountain. I have however givin classes for years and know a thing or two about photography. If you want, I can send you a few of my shots from off the track if you would like me to back up my words.

 yesss! austrian - hungarian cooperation =) great picture! but i suppose it was shot last year

 That has f+ck all to do with austrians. The woods is in Austria. That's it. It is a good Hungarian rider ans a good Hungarian Photograph. Not the woods. Cheers.
  • + 1
 chris bee, your way too pretentious and negative, he didn't say that the picture had everything to do with Austrian's as a group of people living in the country Austria. ** THE HILL IS IN AUSTRIA** = AUSTRIAN - HUNGARIAN COOPERATION without 'the woods' you really wouldn't have the photo in its entirety so next time, think, use the brain your parents blessed you with before just mindlessly trying to put somebody else comment down, for no reason.

 @ MBSubsin -i have not claimed that my pics are great or that i am the shit

@gcaprider - i like to read the captions. i was providing only my opinion and constructive criticism, i wasnt bashing it. i commented also saying "thank you for everything you do" ...oh and i think you are a dick.

@darkstar - agree with you, i pesonally would sway for a slightly different point thats all

@themerryprankster- i agree

@kittykiller - i do apreciate the photo and the riding, if you pull your head out of your ass and read my whole comment you might realize that. i do think it is pod worthy, i dont know how you got the idea that i didnt think so. you need to absorb text. i agree and realize that photography is art.

@ ian hylands - i like reading your captions, and agree that is is a worthy pod i am not arguing any of that. i understand that you have a lot to root through. i think it goes without saying that unless one states somthing as a fact it is only to be construed as a single opinion, which i chose to share with you. im not trying to tell you not to write something that i dont care about, its not a big deal. you dont have to read my comment either if you dont want to hahahahahaha

 geez idk about all of you but the stuff some people say on the internet sometimes make me wish i could just crawl down the cable line all the way to a different country and whoop the shit out of some shithead, in a jay and silent bob sorta way. anyone else ever feel like this If you don't like the photo, don't look at it. You're either a troll, incredibly stupid, have no clue, or, suffering from some sort of mental disability, perhaps all the above, and, no offense if you are. bet you wouldnt say that to my face punk.
