Photo of the Day - April 2012

It's April on the International Dateline.


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.

Great shot. Love the colors and fog. Nicely done. Here's mine for the first of the month:

I like the colours in your shot. The fog (?) adds to the atmosphere .

Mine for the first:

So here in Sudbury, Ontario, it is dull and grey and +2 C. We had a snow overnight that's melting. I thought I'd go out with the 105 just to mess about. This plant has been in my kitchen for a month and a half now. So before I headed to the bush, I took it outside, put it on the railing and took a couple of hand held shots. It's not a good photo I know. But as I was making some adjustments to the RAW file, I noticed the bug at exactly 9 o'clock from the centre of the flower. I've had this experience with the 105 previously. It sees stuff I never see. I think this is so cool. The lens, not the photo. I'm sure lots of us have had the same experience. Any stories and photos of the unexpected ? BJ
