 Should really change the way POM is judged, what is the logic in doing it by the photo with the most views? When that's mostly down to the time/day it's posted and if it's shared on FB and Instagram. For someone to 'fav' a photo shows they actually like it, not just looked at it, so surely the most liked photo should be the picture of the month?
Put it this way, the POM this time has 14,300 views but only 86 favs. Yet the photo in 5th has only 5,800 views but 201 favs. That's 8,500 more views, but 115 less favs.

Not to mention, the CP Gang shot is clearly the best haha

 My girlfriend's phone makes clicking noises when she texts. That's not fair.

 This also has a lot to do with timing on when the photo was posted, if an article was connected to the photo, and how far through the month did it become POD. I'm fairly certain that the photo most viewed was early on in the month, while Lorraine Blancher's photo was POD only a few days ago and the article was from last week. Surely not enough to time to rack up the 'points' to win, but in my opinion, is the most visually stunning and the one I'd most likely put on the wall in my living room.

 I didn't even see a lot of the photos until now. Did they ever post them to be voted on, or do you have to just come cross them?

 Yeah, VOM on the other hand really does matter on views. If people like it, they're watch it again ad again. I don't know about everyone else, but I hardly ever look at photos on Pinkbike (Unless its a local track to me or I know the rider/photographer personally). To see these photos it absolutely amazing! Kudos to all the photographers who made the cut and all those who got robbed.

 Who cares? Pinkbike provides us with so many awesome things and I think checking out the amount of views or amount of favs is a legit way to choose the POMs. Better spend your time and energy in something else. Which makes me realize, why am I even wasting my time commenting this?

Anyways, the Pinkbike crew is being awesome as always, big props for that! Beer

 Pinkbike should post all POD's with a poll to at the bottom to choose your favorite, and give it a few days then post the top 5. Seems simple enough

 that seems like the fairest idea, as some people might not have seen a certain photo on a certain day, and this gives a chance for everyone to see all the photos next to each other and compare all aspects of them please do this pb

 All great photos! #5 is my fav. Bartek has some skill capturing all three riders in focus, moving at pace like that (& at different depths). Respect.

Congrats to all entrants and well done. Keep them coming please! Big Grin

 The fifth photo is probably the best

 #3 gets my vote. The scenery is jaw dropping. The steep he's on is just the definition of rad. Followed by the fact that it looks like the rollout is across the actual trail into the abyss. That's one hell of a photo.

 @vinceain: thats the thing, i feel like all of the online mtb websites are loosing viewers! tried vitalmtb but thats pretty dead. i dunno, maybe they all do better on instagram and other social media outlets?

 @robyhsb: It's nothing to do with Pinkbike figures for the site overall - they'll be going up every year. POD views have shrivelled so much because they are now shared with the PB Instagram account and also probably because of sites and apps like Instagram in general soaking up peoples appetite for amazing photos...
