    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.

    A stranger posing for me at the Louvre, on a recent visit to the French capital. Paris, it really did live up to the hype! Beautiful city!

    There should be a thumbtack/pin icon when you go to grab the link. That one has the BBCode. See explanations here and here.

    Beautiful and a sure sign of spring MacRy...well done.

    You guys are definitely ahead of us on the seasonal continuum. We're just now seeing the last of the snow melt away but we'll get there and start complaining about the heat soon enough.

    Yeah...tough call but a very good shot anyway. :)

    Thanks Cheese. It's about time our spring arrived. It's been a long time coming what with Aquawinter hanging around for so long.

    I found that the logo design at the bottom right did not fit the aesthetics of the photo, will work on it again tomorrow and resubmit. thanks!

    nice! the triangular shape of the flower fits nicely in the square frame! I'm really beginning to like brave cropping.

    Aquawinter made me laugh, apparently you have plenty of those over there

    Thanks needfx. I'm shooting in square format for a photo challenge on another site so I'm glad it works with the triangle as that is what I was hoping for :)

    We've officially renamed winter now ;)

    A thirty second exposure of Port Adelaide after dark. I feel it could have done with using a ND filter to get up to maybe a minute or two for perfectly mirror-like water.

    Norm is a ring tailed lemur. I have a seasonal position at a privately owned zoo here in Kansas (my wife works there as the Education Curator year round), and we have an island where guests can go inside with the lemurs and feed them. It's pretty amazing.
