Photo of the Day: May 2013

It's May 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 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.

Note: Anyone may start the Photo of the Day thread on the first of the month GMT. Please copy a quote of this post or download the Welcome file from HERE when you do. Both maintain all the formatting and links.

^Looks like they've made some good progress since I was there a few months ago.
Nice balanced exposure, the sky looks nicely exposed relative to the buildings.

Doylem, the pictures in your last two posts have not shown up on my computer. Anyone else having this problem?

Yes, I've had to re-upload my last 2 pictures as they weren't showing, seems to be something going on with imageshack.

Reef, a beautiful. mystical photo! I love this one. Any light painting involved or is that just reflected light off of the waves on the rock formation? Here's a moonrise I captured when I was in Moab. The chimney like rock formation is naturally tilted as my camera was leveled for the natural horizon. I decided to leave it as nature created it rather than "straighten" the picture.

Wandering around the city yesterday, I spotted this glimpse between two rows of townhouses with a disused smoke stack at the end. Just had to wait for the right clouds to appear!

the venerable MV Coho loading for its morning run to Port Angeles

this is one of those photos I'll revisit when I get better at selective masking, but for now a simple b&w touch.

In French we say "tabarouette" , as in OMG

Very nice capture, one you can be proud of.
