We had some hammers for images hit our inbox for our first ever Photo Battle. It was tough to decide but in the end it came down to the two gems you see here. These images are very different in terms of lighting and action, but both are well composed, well timed, and make good use of light (be it natural, artificial, or a combination of both). On one hand you have a silhouette of a rider on a rail, shot from water level and on the other you have a high-flying shredder lit up with a remote flash and shot from a chase boat. Both photos are very unique and well done by the respective photographers. Now it’s up to you, the internet-perusing enthusiasts of all things wake, to cast your vote and pick the inaugural winner of the Alliance Photo Battle.
