    It's August 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.

    Nice separation between the subject and background both in color and clarity. Nice forms with the soft organic shapes in the main part of the frame and the sharp geometric one in the lower portion of the frame. Excellent depth of field for a shallow shot on a fairly long lens (f/3.5 200mm).

    TL;DR Nice pic ;)

    Parking lot!

    Another photo from Akka (Acre), Israel. Had to chuckle to myself when I saw all these different forms of transport 'parked' near the old sea gate in Akka! :)

    Nice light

    We have to wait a loonnggg time for darkness at this time of the year. An old guy, like me, prefers the shorter days of the fall. Nice shot. Nice light.

    Mine for today.... came home the other days only to find this 70's vintage westy in the neighbourhood. So I parked my '88 next to it, ran inside and grabbed this shot....

    Our local, which opened just a short while ago. Really bland from a design point of view as far as their stores go, but effective in regard of being so boring that you just have the merch. to look at.

    Click through, then hit the magnifying glass to see it large. Photobucket is a pain for this. :(

    Nice shot Reef! Obviously great colour and composition but, IMHO, the open gate is what really makes the shot exceptional as it literally draws me in.

    Mine for today:

    I like the low viewpoint, the result of the 400mm and distance I guess. Or are you the kind of person that enters the pond too?
