    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 Weekly Contest, and no winners (or losers) either.


    Policies

    *One Photo per Day - Don't post more than one photo each day.

    *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.



    Note: Anyone may start the Photo of the Day thread on the first of the month GMT. Please copy a quote of this post to maintain all the formatting.

    True. [​IMG] Thanks. As stated, it's playing with the google Nik gifts. The original is nicer.

    I downloaded the free Nik software too, but haven't had a play with them yet. I have some pix that could do with some selective changes, but I know the temptation of pushing the 'effects' a bit too far. It's so easy! :)

    A very exciting day today -- I saw one of these colorful little fellows for the first time. I was quite pleased with the feather detail and freezing the wings...

    Looks a bit different from yesterday's, but I can't quite put my finger on it...

    I had already owned the NIK Collection but was not one of those who got mad at Google for offering it for free. But seeing some posts here of people playing with it got me to go back to one of my photos from Yosemite that I took this past January and play with Silver Efex Pro.

    You have a sharp eye, AFB -- I went with a different lighting setup on this one. ;)

    Another wet weekend here I'm afraid....don't do a lot of selective colour but in this case, the SOOC was little different! Comments always appreciated.

    Yes, life on the road hasn't yet lost its lustre after - gulp - nearly two years. The Romahome is such a small space to keep warm, and I have a toasty warm sleeping bag. I have no plans to 'settle down' or even stop anywhere for long.

    The road less travelled...

    Well your photography is certinly benefiting from your nomadic lifestyle. Not for everyone, but if your enjoying it that's the main thing.

    When you've lived in a dilapidated wooden shack for ten years, AFB, a tiny motorhome is luxury! :)
