 though the rider isn't totally crisp sharp, this picture has it all. great idea, great execution, great style. you can see the trail, the action is steezy, the lighting is wonderful and the overall composition really nails it. especially the fact that it is a self-shot is AMAZING! POD for me too. thumbs up, brad!

 What the shit does that have to do with anything? Wearing goggles all the time is gay, and people that judge a pic's quality based on riding gear can EMBO.
