    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.


    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.

    Nice shot. The iPhone 6s have a feature in the camera app that allows you to put a focus point just by touching a spot on the screen. For me, I would have focused on Boomer's nose / eyes and let the depth of field be a bit smoother. :)

    Mrs. r.harris1 doesn't sit for portraits so I had to substitute myself. I am generally an available light guy (and I don't really do people) but I promised myself over the winter I'd start to teach myself some flash & lighting basics. Obviously, I've a ways to go but I hope to improve a lot over the coming weeks. I didn't nail the eye focus (manual focus lens so slightly awkward getting it just right) and no finesse at all with the light, of course. Comments, tips, pointers appreciated.

    No constructive help at all to you, but I think it's much better lighting than I can manage :)

    Now if I only had a Bad Guy living nearby to teach me ;)

    Cheers :)

    Yes, I'd love The Bad Guy to teach me, but I don't make a good male stripper :)

    I've never stripped a male my life :D

    How about 'Bad Guy' On Tour - we could all keep him in beer and fresh raw meat as compensation, plus scintillating conversation of course :)

    Cheers :)

    I really think I could've done a better job with the exposure. When traveling the UK, one doesn't have much time to stop for a proper exposure. Also, my workhorse (Canon T2i) is really starting to show it's age.

    Enjoy!

    Lovely location. Lousy sky and lighting.

    I was up until 5 am last night (uh, this morning) editing at then to work a 9. From a shoot on Sunday I just dropped this image off for printing for my portraiture class.

    Nice one - the boat certainly puts the coast into scale - pity the sky didn't play nice.
