Photo of the day: December 2012

It's well and truly into the first day of December here in Oz, so I'll get the ball rolling.

Welcome to Photo of the Day. The POTD thread was started by iGary in May, 2006 and converted to a monthly thread in November 2007 by Arn. POTD is one of the most popular picture groups on MacRumors, often exceeding 500 posts and 20,000 views per month.

Photo of the Day is intended to be a showcase for your best pictures. There is no limit to your gear, just your imagination. P&S and film cameras are welcome along with DSLRs. There are no themes like the Fortnightly Challenge and Weekly Contest, and no winners (or losers) either.



Policies


*One Photo per Day - Don't post more than one photo each day.

*Quote with Thumbnails - When you quote an image please restore it's thumbnail before replying. You can do this either by installing the AutoTIMG browser extension or by editing the code by hand.

*Multi-Quote - To comment on several photos, click the Multi-Quote button. This puts all your comments in one post. Multi-Quoting is required on all of the MacRumors forums.

*SFW (Safe for Work) only - This is a site - wide rule. If you wouldn't show it in a public place, then it's NSFW (not safe for work). Think before you post.

*Describe your photo - Tell what it is and where you took it. If you know the EXIF data of a photo, include it. The following EXIF fields are recommended: Camera, ISO, Focal Length, Shutter/Aperture and Lens.

*Photography forum tutorials - If you need any help with posting, try one of these tutorials.

Too minimal for the crowd here?

Wasn't sure whether to post this type of thing here or not, so I'll give it a go and see if I get booed off stage... Personally, I love minimal and small detail shots.

Well, here is my first try at this. This was from a recent trip to Arizona -- we took Jeeps up into the mountains and ended up at Crown King. Very cool experience...hope you enjoy!

The lighting, subject, and composition of this this photo remind me so much of Vermeer. Congratulations, Doylem!

Thank you... That's exactly what I was thinking...

A couple of nights ago I stayed in this youth hostel at the Coniston Coppermines. Great location... but it illustrates why I don't really like unclouded skies for photography. The scene is 'over-lit'. Ah well, I had a good day's walking...

Virtual Painting Caricature

Always lot's of really great and beautiful landscapes/sunsets, plants/flowers and birds/bugs on here... forgive me for trying to mix things up a bit.

When it comes to film photography, I'm a bit of a purist; straight out of the camera is how I like to present it. But with digital, that's where I feel Photoshopping/Image Manipulation is just as much a part of the process of digital photography as taking the picture itself. With that being said, I'm working on a new [to me] series of what I call "Virtual Painting Caricatures". The photos are originally taken by me with a model and then heavily manipulated (obviously) in Photoshop.

I would love to challenge some of you to get out of your comfort zone and try something new (other than what you normally do.) I try to force myself to try a new technique, style or perspective I've never tried before on a weekly basis (I'm traditionally a street and architectural photographer.) It's a great way to exercise your creativity!

I was underwhelmed with the images my new Nikon 70-200 f4 initially produced. However, after playing with it today I am feeling better about my purchase:



I image was captured hand-held, shot at f8.

I've really been enjoying your Blackwell shots Doylem...especially this one. The lady looks so at home in a great spot for a read. But I have to ask...is the place always so clean? I'm feeling like such a slob in comparison.

Thanks, this is just downstream of Rocky Brook Falls near Brinnon,WA. The mist in the trees is from the falls. I tried to get a shot of the falls, but the mist was too heavy and was covering my gear far too quickly to get a shot off. I've killed one camera with water this year, no need to kill two!

I now kinda "live" about an hour from the Hood Canal and plan to explore it some more. I have a place to stay about 10 miles from Brinnon, so I can get a good jump on a day of exploring.
