    You see the first one and you’re like “well that’s kinda nice – in a listening to Enya on a rainy Tuesday afternoon kind of way.” Then you see the second one and the overly dramatic heavy metal starts and you think that guy probably has some sweet moustachery going on and then you vote for photo 2.

    How early do you think guy number 2 popped off? 10 ft and hop off sloppy and act thug with his dirty brown locks of hair.

    photo 1 looks like a more fun spot to session. If you fall off the rail, whatever, enjoy some untracked turns and go home for some hot cocoa after a nice bath.

    photo 2, hey, harsh concrete presser to flat dead stop landing to lifestyle footy of you slamming a PBR with raindrops on the fisheye lens

    1 is just a lot more interesting with the shadows and colors. the second one got too greywashed and looks like it was compensating for iffy exposure.

    Yeah, both are really good! Jakko’s got a soft feel to it, like the blue pow in the foreground and how it’s lit all-in-all. Though Ben is a gaddam legend, so badass…
