It should be a requirement for all PODs to be of decent photo size. 434x600? That's appalling!
(Aug 9, 2012 at 6:49)
It's such a good shot, it deserves POD even without having large dimensions.
(Aug 9, 2012 at 8:00)
POD's are just getting better and better. This is insane. The tricks these guys are doing and the photos that are being taken...look at the PODs from 2 years ago, they don't even come close to comparing. I guess this is what you call progression. Unreal.
(Aug 9, 2012 at 9:09)
Wow dude........just wow.
(Aug 9, 2012 at 13:48)
Its been taken on a iphone ffs!!!
(Aug 9, 2012 at 15:24)

(Aug 9, 2012 at 16:23)
Don't stop there, get off the internet.
(Aug 9, 2012 at 18:45)
He cant get off the internet, that's where he orders all his dildos.
(Aug 9, 2012 at 19:28)
^that cracked me up
(Aug 9, 2012 at 22:38)
i bet he rides a full suspension dildo
(Aug 9, 2012 at 22:57)
Just look in his "dh bike" album actually
(Aug 13, 2012 at 15:05)
I have a feeling a comment got deleted somewhere up there ^^^ ??? If not I'm so confused.
(Aug 13, 2012 at 22:39)

(Aug 13, 2012 at 22:50)

extra stuff on da bike???
(Aug 9, 2012 at 0:00)
james visser...fucking legend
(Aug 9, 2012 at 7:20)
I think "reallybigmantis" was asking, what's with all that extra stuff attached to his bike (near the cranks, rear triangle). I have no clue what it is!
(Aug 9, 2012 at 7:52)
It's a full suspension bike, and there's a watermark stamped across the bike above the cranks and seat. I really considered not making it POD because of this, but in the end I really liked the look of the shot.
(Aug 9, 2012 at 8:42)
why is there a water mark? looks just like a dartmoor shine
(Aug 9, 2012 at 10:02)
Ohhhhh ok Ian, thanks for clearing that up. I thought it was a hardtail with some funky attachments (for video or something). I never would have guessed its a watermark.
(Aug 9, 2012 at 11:19)
yeah, and there's at least one more across the ramp as well...
(Aug 9, 2012 at 19:54)
and the bike is an Ellsworth Momentum just incase you were wondering
(Aug 10, 2012 at 15:12)
I actually was sort of wondering! SO thanks!

love this... looks real moody.... great use of colour..!!
(Aug 9, 2012 at 15:01)
great caption, great light, grat trick... great!
(Aug 9, 2012 at 4:36)
The shadows come from the merge of frames used in this HDR image. As a HDR is multi exposure shot, you cant catch moving action as a single image so a single shot of the rider is merged into the HDR image. That's what it looks like it is to me.
(Aug 9, 2012 at 7:51)
I hate to disappoint you but I really don't think there is any HDR in this image. He exposed to get the background how he wanted it, then simply used flash to light up the rider, jump and foreground. The only effect really is what looks like too much sharpening, which gives the shadows in the dirt that super contrasty look.
(Aug 9, 2012 at 7:59)
no HDR, I witnessed the shot being taken and there were multiple shots using the flash in different areas to get the lighting right. Then shopped(blended) the photos together...
(Aug 9, 2012 at 22:25)
(Aug 17, 2012 at 19:56)
Well done. Why does everyone from Ramona kick so much ass?
(Oct 5, 2012 at 14:50)
Bailing now would be a bad idea
(Jul 12, 2012 at 19:28)
POD all day
(Aug 9, 2012 at 16:42)
I called it, good job Pat and James. More POD's to come this duo make for unbelievable photos. So glad I made these jumps and was able to help in the photo shoot.
(Aug 9, 2012 at 2:07)
Whats with the grey outline that looks like a second set of cranks?
(Aug 9, 2012 at 7:53)
It's a text watermark that the photographer stamped across the image

(Aug 9, 2012 at 0:18)
Yeah me too but instead of vaseline I use originality.
(Aug 9, 2012 at 1:50)
i see what you did there
(Aug 9, 2012 at 1:53)
(Aug 9, 2012 at 0:05)
I think once you own a redbull helmet it just automatically makes you good...
(Aug 9, 2012 at 1:39)
its not a redbull helment...
(Aug 9, 2012 at 1:44)
Umm... I'm pretty sure it is...
(Aug 9, 2012 at 1:52)
No its not, Red Bull helmets are blue and silver, this one is solid blue.
(Aug 9, 2012 at 2:02)
Solid blue? What are you looking at? Unless my monitor here at work is broken, the bottom half is definitely silver.
(Aug 9, 2012 at 2:08)
Haha i see what your saying for sure, but nah its a THE T2 blue slice helmet!
(Aug 9, 2012 at 2:31)
Hmm, closer.. but I still don't see it being that, The slice has a blue mouth guard, this one is all silver...
(Aug 9, 2012 at 9:20)
Nittygritty... jamisbowtech is the rider in the photo above. I think he knows what model helmet he wears.
(Aug 9, 2012 at 12:33)
Either way, redbull helmets have two huge redbull icons across the sides of the helmets...
