 Selected by Ian Hylands - I haven't personally picked any of my own shots for POD, and I won't pick very many. Selected by Ian Hylands - Once again I've chosen my own shot as POD, I hope you don't mind too much. Selected by Ian Hylands - I guess you have gotten over not wanted to pick your own shots for POD...3 in less than 33 days. About this photo amazing as always. Mad props to Semenuk. I am sure that I would be too busy with my jaw on the ground in total disbelief of his skills to even take a photo so good job to you to Ian.

 There is beginning to be a lot of PODs from Ian Hyland. Not that I dont think his pics are worthy, I just think PODs should be from others that aren't already hired by Pinkbike, and already get tons of pics published on the site already with coverage and stories. Its pretty funny that a POD would be selected from the same person who took the shot.

 Rocky: Completely agree with you.

"I really wanted a POD of Semenuk after the contest this weekend.... "

I'm sure that in a few days there would've been more than enough shots of Semenuk by other photographers that were worthy of POD from this contest, and quite possibly almost the same shot that you have here. In fact, there probably are already now.

I love your photography Ian, but it would be nice to see other's work in these contests. One of your other ones I not only saw on the site, but in a local newspaper ...

 Ian Hyland, your photos are cool, but your skills criticising photos is pretty much terrible, do you actually have any knowledge of photography at all, or can u just take a nice picture?? Sometimes I wonder...

And it would be nice if we could see a POD that wasn't actually chosen by the person who took it...
  • + 18
 Well let's see, in the 200 and some days that I've been working for Pinkbike I've chosen my own photo 3 times, so I can understand why you're upset. And as far as my knowledge of photography I've been shooting Mountain Biking since before you were born, and several other sports for 10 years before that. And I teach College Level Photography as well. So while I don't really mind criticism, yours is a little off base.

 so what you guys are saying is that if one of you took this photo, and Ian came across it on pinkbike, he shouldn't make it POD?

 Biggest MTB whip ever? Definately one of the sickest!
  • + 6
 Thomas Vanderham takes biggest and sickest whip ever sorry. but this comes in very close!
  • + 3
 This looks a bit bigger. Nothing taken away from Van though, we all know and love his whip.
  • + 3
 Looks like Brandon has been hanging out with Vanderham..
  • + 2
 I dunno,

www.pinkbike.com/photo/6788697

Vandersteeze seems full on sideways, but Semenuk looks like he's almost going backwards!
  • + 2
 Either way, Brandon has breached the Vanderham Barrier(a.k.a: completely sideways)
  • + 1
 He got it out there, but he didn't even come close to bringing it back. so Vanderham is still that step ahead. you can see it at the end of this video.
  • + 2
 Not sure what you're talking about Brandon not bringing it back? He landed every one that I shot, solid! I have full sequences of a few of them, when I have some time I'll upload them...
  • + 1
 oops i didn't post the link to the video. but by the looks of this video he didn't pull it back, ill take your word for it tho.
