 Super Average shot in my opinion, I would like to know why it was chosen as POD since there is no little summary. Very bland and boring, it doesnt even look to be in perfect focus. I'm looking at the POD and VOD everyday, rarely will i think it was a poor choice but i have to say something today. Everyone has their own opinion, this is mine.

 Super average? Oh my God this picture is soooo ok...

 Not every POD has to be of gigantic air, and ridiculous drops. Its nice to see someone exhibit the skill and strength it takes to keep both hands on the bars, both feet on the pedals, and both wheels on the ground. It's also nice to see that there are photographers out there who are able to cature these moments. There is a tiny window of opportunity for the both of them to own the moment, which they have done quite skillfully.

 Quite disappointed with the POD today. Why this image, Ian?
  • 4 0
 Because someone hijacked my account... or at least my computer. To be completely honest there is no way I would have picked this shot as POD, wouldn't even of faved it. Not that I don't like it, but it's just not something that I would pick over thousands of other images...
  • 3 0
 well, that explains it all. Knowing you as one of the best photographers in the industry, this choice just didn't make any sense. Thanks for the explanation. Hopefully, everything will sort out.

 Yeah it's my fault, left my computer on in someone else's house for 3 or 4 days without thinking to lock it down... I'm always giving people shit for not being responsible for their accounts, I guess this is my punishment!
  • 2 0
 I think it's cool though, this low quality shot of some one about to crash has got over 650faves and not many people complaining about the POD. Just comes to show, not everyone is looking for perfect quality and amazing riding for a POD.

 ''tetonlarry'' you just contradicted yourself! you commented on a different post saying your against putting on things like a neck brace and other protective equipment..
  • 1 0
 1st of all, this post is almost a year old. 2nd, My comment here does not endorse neck braces, as they were never intended to prevent people smashing their faces on their seats. 3rd, In the other comment you are referring too I did forget to mention neck braces. I do think they are a good piece of protective equipment. Pressure suits and shin-pads on the other hand I do still think are worthless. I'm not about wearing protection that will only prevent against cuts and bruises. I only want to wear protection that will prevent me from breaking bones. Lastly, I get bored at work and like to post comments that will spark a conversation or sometimes even an argument to help pass the time. I'm really not too worried about my integrity on a website full of people I will never meet in real life.
