Firing Squad: November 23, 2010

Winter came early and heavy this year, and in honor of Mother Nature deciding to bless the NW with some heavy La Nina action, we’ve decided to run some powder pop versus metallic twang. Don’t worry, they are both black and white so it shouldn’t make your head hurt too much comparing urban to pow. Now vote.

The Champ

The Challenger

Think you can do better? Then quit your bitching. The Firing Squad is a weekly photo competition. Winners of a single battle will receive a pair of Da Kine gloves and should a photo survive 4 weeks, the photographer receives a place in the Champions Gallery and a Da Kine Camera Pack, as well as a chance to compete in the year-end Ultimate Champions battle. To enter your own photo in the Firing Squad, check out our submission guidelines.

    i have to go with the champ. but it was a really hard decession. champ wins for the more “i dont know what happens” feeling.

    Oh damn not really a close call, I love the challenger. Awesome composition and contrast, and a cab 9? That shit’s ill!

  • Champ for sure. The Challenger is sick, but the composition draws my eye away from the rider. I feel like he’s going the wrong way..

    jimbo is a faggot

  • i like how there is the ‘security’ feature that you need to type in a matching word to submit your vote, except that when you dont type it in it does the same thing as when you type it in… oh yea pictures – im diggin the challenger…little to dark for me but i really like the plume coming off the kicker

    Challenger – for no good reason.

  • Anto

    Black and white…again and again.

  • rdub

    this is real tight. enjoying the composition and textures in the challenger. but still loving the champ’s set-up as well. needs a ‘too close to call’ button.

  • samson

    …that said, the champ had a better shot. that shadow is jazzy

  • Val-cheeze

    Sam FTW

  • phil

    i like the challengers lighting and comp but the timing is off. He’s just a blob on a board. gotta go with champ

  • Penn

    A blob? It’s called a silhouette you idiot. Timing is perfect, as he is square to the frame.

  • Challenger. pow pow. Plus, I love the way the snow trail looks like a jet booster. haha
