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!

Something really old to see in the New Year.

I went to see the ancient Stone Circle a Duddo and the rock carvings at Routing Linn in Northumberland today. Got to Routing Linn as night was falling.

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

You have posted some very nice Winter photos. I'm partial to the one you posted lat the end of December and would like to make it my Winter desktop. That OK?

Note: Anyone else having image quote issues?

Set the lens in the picture to maximum aperture and manually focus it to infinity. Then hold it in front of the camera at arms length. Camera settings: 1/200, ƒ/9, ISO 1600, 50 mm. Aim at mirror about 10 feet away with everything aligned, click. Note that in doing this your subject (you) will be upside down, I rotated it right side up in post.
