    It's December 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.

    One step at a time

    Perhaps it's a personal preference but I don't know that bottom-right to top-left diagonal elements work from a composition perspective....comments always welcome

    I was later told these are called teddy bear sunflowers. Fitting!

    I was in Kingston today on business and came across this sculpture in the middle of the town centre.

    Feel's like ages since I used my camera :(

    Here's one I took the other week. A bit to central really, but I wanted to get as much of the speeder in as I could without getting a guy on the left in shot.

    Loverly. Is this how Stonehenge will look in another 2000 years (or after they install the underpass?)

    I love this photo. Really nailed it.

    Working all hours of the day at the moment but there is a goal in site!

    Hopefully it'll be worth the hard work and effort.

    Nice, but I do wonder what it cost.

    What I'm comparison to just a normal tunnel? In the grand scheme of things I wonder see the design aspect being too much more?

    Thanks very much AFB. I think I prefer subdued lighting for wildlife.

    You can't put a price on beauty. I'd rather they spend the money on aesthetics as well as utility. We have far too many architectural monstrosities in this country.

    It was strange going through the tunnel the first time.
