 good digging..

 The monster boys looked better and more factory with D3's but I suppose having the make of your bike as a helmet is more factory, but Just doesn't look as out there as the D3. Sick shot tho, and that race looked mad. POD.

 Maybe they're the SAME PERSON!!!!11!!1!!!!

 What duncan said, this has been everywhere!

 is it not a specilized helmet he's wearing?
  • + 1
 it is
  • + 3
 Yeah they're all the same but they're all different, I liked this one because it was a little bit brighter than the others, and the composition was decent, although I'll agree with Eric on the marshall and the banner at the top.
  • + 3
 I looked at 3 above - this definitely had the best colour.

 @kieran95 They are the same person, different photographers.

 Its not that good lol its only a rider splashing through a puddle and doing a little bar turn over a bump jump.
  • + 1
 and yet you can't do any better.
  • + 2
 Any better what photo ?, obviously i dont have this type of camera that is why.
  • + 2
 Composition, angle, thirds, colours, lighting, the actual action in the photo, all spot on. Seems like a perfect recipe for a POD to me.
  • + 4
 I personally find that red banner & marshal right on the edge above his head a bit distracting, so the composition is not 100% to me. Would be very easy to sort out, but guessing that spot was packed with other photographers he may not have had the option to move to a better spot.
  • + 3
 tbh i dont think the lighting is that great, it looks pale
  • + 2
 Over exposed a bit?
  • + 1
 yeah, but shadows (especially his face) would get too dark if it were underexposed
  • - 1
 Your true, but nobody had a flash? :S
  • + 1
 I use mine all the time, but I also don't shoot big races with 10 other photographers in the same corner. To have it close enough & not in someone else's way wouldn't be easy here.
  • + 2
 I like this photo. I know nothing about lighting, shutter speeds and all that stuff. But this is a cool pic. Not like the jump pics where you can get the rider to go back and keep jumpin till you get the perfect shot. This was one chance one shot and i'd say he nailed it.
  • + 3
 Holy crap guys. Who cares if the lighting is a little off or something a ove his head. Do you want a photoshoped picture or the real thing?
  • + 1
 you don't need photoshop to get the shot right in the 1st place... a longer lens from a bit further would get them out without any editing...
  • + 1
 No i know i was just saying. every pict ive seen so far someone has to complain about how the lighting was a little wrong or he was looking the wrong way. i remember when riding picts were about the guy riding not how perfect of a pict it had to be because of the lighting or angle. it captured a moment of either whoohooo or oh my god im gonna die. Foes-mono has the right idea.

 Čestitke za pod, zdej hočemo enega vsak mesec!
  • + 2
 Nice shot - good depth of field and captures the action nicely. Also well balanced... I like!
  • + 2
 he shreds like this, because he's Australian! hey, we get excited about killing puddles, what of it?

 hes going to get mud on his tongue in the next 3 seconds

 I love riding through puddles. sick shot!!
  • + 34
 I dont, you get wet
  • + 6
 I figure your going to get all wet and dirty anyway, there isn't much point in slowing down the process. Bunny hopping into a puddle is even more fun, and you don't get to wet.
  • + 24
 Unless the puddles in England, then you need flippers!
  • + 4
 you get wet, then you have to clean your bike Frown
  • + 4
 and I thought you aussies were a tough bunch !
  • + 6
 were just not use to this thing called water.... it comes occasionally but its pretty foreign.
  • + 2
 Unless you live in a place called Wollongong. where it rains alot. dusty trails have been hard to come by for a while around here. but last weekend, omg that was so nice and dusty!!! only having to pedal once and just rolling off lips, rather than pedaling up to the lip and then boosting off it. I couldn't keep the smile off my face!
  • + 1
 yeah it hasnt stopped raining in adelaide. the our prime dirt jumps are unrideable now Frown it sucks so much!

 sucks for you it's winter on the southern hemisphere Big Grin

 I know, I went to Whistler for a week in July and that was soooo good! I still have a rockn' glove tan. it just sucks that SGC won't let you ride until 8:00pm or when ever the lift closes. Now we just have to mission of building something that flows as well as blue velvet.
  • + 2
 And then with only 24 hours until the weekend it pisses down. fml!
