 Technical question: was this really shot with a 50 mm lens?? Just curious! But I found the distorsion on the building quite strong for such a focal.

Anyway not matter the lens used I like it a lot! Really nice composition.

 Aperture of f/0.0 must be really expensive.

 I wanted to say I wanted something other than another urban-ish shot, but this is just..dammit. I love it. Fantastic shot.

 Who cares if he doesn't have a helmet on, it's his choice.

 yeah but rules for POD are that you have to be wearing a helmet Salute . personally i say do what you like, if you want to risk having a serious head/brain injury because you want to look "cool" then you really have got your priorities right.

 I agree about wearing helmets with any kind of cycling. Dirt/street/park BMX, roadie, and mountain biking. It's just common sense. However, riding flatland BMX seems like you would do the same damage to your head as taking a dip jogging. I know a lot of you don't get out of bed without securing your trusty helmet on, but really?

I like waffles.

 i think that photograhers are like a artits because they have to be so skilled to get photo like that and they have patience, to just to sit there for the right light.

 Awesome photo. Awesome behind the scenes footy. And a flatland POD. That's gotta be a first on pinkbike! Solid work.

 hi spothead, your comment made me kind of curious if this is really the first one. I made my way through 160 pages of pods.
It was a crazy journey from the beginning of pinkbike and the increasing level of photo and rider ability. But, when I didnt overlooked anything, this is really the first flatland bmx Pod. =)

 Congrats Airik! I used to flatland back in the day. I'd love to get back into it, but man, does it require some time and devotion.
