    Photo of the Day: August 2010

    It is now August on the International Dateline

    Welcome to Photo of the Day. The POTD thread was started by iGary, and first posted in May, 2006 It was converted to a monthly thread in November 2007 by Arn. POTD is one of the most popular picture groups on MacRumors and often exceeds 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 Fortnightly Challenge and Weekly Contest. No winners (or losers), either.

    Policies

    *One Photo per Day - Don't post multiple images in one message.

    *Quote with Thumbnails - If you quote an image that has tags, convert them to [img] tags before replying. This will post your comment with a thumbnail and save space. Failure to [img] in quotes is still a problem at this time. Help fix that.

    *Multi-Quote - To comment on several photos, click the Multi-Quote button. This puts all your comments in one post. The Moderators like that. Observe the [img] policy here, too (especially).

    *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.

    Optional - 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; Lens.

    VERY clever lighting! I love the hidden strobe lighting the umbrella. You've been posting some great shots with your strobes lately, and this certainly no exception.

    I feel that if you straighten the horizon, it will make a world of difference. :)


    ...But then again, the buildings wouldn't actually be straight, would they? hrmmm. Something just seems slightly off...

    I tried a new vantage point today but it didn't turn out as well as I expected. It seems to blurry when I crop the photo. :( Not happy as I now have to wait until next summer to try it again.

    I see what you mean about the blur, however the colours and the vibrancy make it a brilliant shot, even more so at a smaller size!

    Thank you! I greatly appreciate the comments. May someone help me out and tell me what I am doing wrong so I can get it as "picture perfect" as possible next time?
