Singletrack Forum Photography Competition Winners Revealed!

by 15

Voting is closed and the results are in! There were some very close votes, but here are your inaugural Singletrack Forum Photography Competition Winners!

Just Riding Along

The winner was @Superfli with this big mountain view. That looks like a the start of a great descent, 100% want to go.

Gnarpooning

The winner was @colournoise with this Blair Witch escape scene.

Bike Life

It’s @colournoise again! This time, it’s more of a BMX bandits theme. Aren’t pump tracks great?

Out There

It’s a snowy scene from @sniff that wouldn’t look out of place in a Scandi Noir, or perhaps a Wilco album cover.

Open

And another one from @sniff wins the Open category. That looks beautiful, and magical, but also epically cold.

Overall Winner

The overall winner is @sniff’s night sky shot!

Congratulations to all the winners, and thanks to everyone who took part. It’s been great to see the different mix of photos, and the variety of interpretations of the the briefs. ‘Mountain biking’ means many things to many people!

We’ll be looking to run something like this again next year, so make sure you get snapping!

I came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. I like all bikes, but especially unusual ones. More than bikes, I like what bikes do. I think that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments. I try to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.

    I really enjoyed this, thank you to Hannah and STW.

    Great work team for making this happen – it’s been great to see other people’s pictures.

    Wow! Amazing! Thanks for all the votes.

    Really enjoyed seeing all the entries and getting a peak into everyone’s rides and memories.

    Both pics were from my phone so hopefully this encourages people to get out, explore and document their rides.

    My personal favourite was @munrobiker ‘s Spectating shot.

    Did we also have some threads without arguing?? 😜

    What phone have you got @sniff ? (Typed, squinting through a screwed up screen)

    @stwhannah Google Pixel – on my third one as the camera software is so good, highly recommend

    Cheers @sniff – my favourite was your snowy hut!

    I’m amazed that it was a phone shot. Mine was too, but in terms of image quality it’s poor. I only have a £150 phone though – maybe I’ll have to admit defeat when this one dies and get a Pixel again (though last time I bought one they were about £200 refurbished and now they’re north of £500).

    Very worthy winners.

    Love superfi’s pic particularly, makes me want to book a holiday now.

    I can only echo what @sniff said. Cool to be part of something here that was unremittingly positive. And thanks for the votes.

    (don’t use it for my riding shots – they’re mostly done with an Insta360 action camera, but I’d also +1 how good the Pixel phone cameras (well their processing software really) are. Especially good in low light situations).

    @munrobiker try CEX as you get a warranty with them and Pixels are reasonably priced there.

    But it’s not all about the quality. The moment you managed to capture is brilliant. People will also pay thousands for fancy cameras and and then add a filter to make it look like yours.

    My pic was taken on a Pixel too, fwiw.
