Photo of the day: January 2013

It's 2 January 2013 in Australia, so time to get us started for another year.

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.

Posting Photos to Photo Forums from Flickr and ImageShack

Happy New Year! Fireworks seems appropriate as a photo share for today.

First try with a studio setup. One of my resolutions is to try and make some money with photography this year!

Thumb resize.
Love the blue streaks. They give great life to the photo.

A handheld shot with my ghetto macro lens (28-80mm without the front lens assembly). The macro rails are on their way to me, but I couldn't wait to see what the 60D could make of this lens, even handheld...

Definitely needs focus stacking to achieve much more detail though. I'll revisit this when the macro rails arrive.

60D handheld, ISO 400, f/13, time unknown exif says 1.3 seconds, but I don't think so!

i agree, those spots bother me too. i was just being lazy not to setup my backdrop. i used a white wall as the background which has marks on it. i tried blurring them out, but I guess it didnt work all that well.

as far as details. i spent some time in photoshop to bring them out.
