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.

My tiny brain is struggling to interpret this image. My brain says it is a mirror image but it actually isnt is it? Great capture.

Nothing like that. It's an ordinary photo of a double stair going from ground level to a bridge. No mirrors involved. No brains were hurt.

Untitled, Luce Bay, SW Scotland.

Another quiet seascape that wasn't quite as technically difficult as the previous one I posted in the March thread. It's maybe not technically better but I feel it is aesthetically better! It was at the short end of the telephoto this time and without the XF 1.4x TC.

Fuji X-T2 and XF 50-140mm f2.8. Using Lee Big Stopper, Lee 0.6 Proglass ND solid and a 0.3 ND soft Grad (I think?)

1min / f11 / ISO 200

I've been one of those who would identify himself as a "natural light" photographer for no other reason than I had no idea how to use flash and off camera lighting. Thought it was about time I started learning. Fortunately, Jake is a very patient model.

Have to say it does give me a greater appreciation for what photographers like The Bad Guy are able to accomplish.

Thanks I picked up a second hand M-e to get some practice in with, with a view to trade in in when the M10 finally arrives...any tips for the new kid?
I'll echo the slow down sentiment. I'm a relative newbie to them myself, having only recently picked up an M9.

Hmm, plant theme so far - a colour version of the WPC entry. Comments always appreciated.

I'm afraid I can't express why in words but I like the B&W version; I see that version and think old Hollywood.

Springtime in Münster (Germany):



(Technically a picture from March, but still… ;) )
I really like this picture. There is a delicateness about it that I find beautiful. That and there are some truly beautiful Cherry blossoms in the mid-Atlantic of the US that if I had more time I would get out and capture.
[doublepost=1491169104][/doublepost]A new free festival here in the city of Baltimore that has been expanded on in its second year, City Lights (any excuse to bring people together downtown). Anyway, artist light installations in the Inner Harbor area, a fair amount of music and food, avant garde outdoor performance dance pieces, and of course interesting people watching.
