BM Photo Comp – the winners

Time to announce the winners of our recent photo competition – these here are the pick of the pics uploaded to our Gallery during the duration of the comp, as chosen by top MTB photographer Seb Rogers, complete with Seb’s comments. Enjoy…

James Dymond

“Makes me want to ride this trail. Putting the rider at the bottom works well, and the curve of the trail echoes the curve of the hills”

Nick Hill

“Great action shot, helped along by the look of concentration on the rider’s face and the fact that we can see what he’s jumping over.”

Uncle Barry

“Great sense of ‘out there’: lone biker, big space, long trail leading the eye through the picture”


“I don’t know why, I just like this. Lovely light, and it looks like the end of a great day’s riding”

John Tennant

Imaginative crop – and it looks cold!”


“Backlit dusty singletrack… Who wouldn’t want to be there?”

Dave Carlson

“I like the rider’s obvious concentration and the blend of sharp and blurred

Jamie Bishop

“I could be wrong, but this looks like remote flash to me – and it’s quite nicely done.”

Paul Whittaker

“The snow highlights the circles perfectly and the trail draws your eye to them and then beyond to the distant hills…”

Luke Webber

“I like the fact that you can’t immediately see the riders. A bit different, and very mellow.”

Not at all bad, those. A lovely Bikemagic jersey to each of our winners (we’ll be in touch, right Dave?) and our thanks to everyone who sent a picture to the Gallery. Hopefully you’ve found it habit-forming…

And if you feel the need to up your photography game, we’ve been picking Seb’s brain for some tricks and techniques. Some of them might surprise you – keep checking back, they’ll be along shortly.
