    It is February 2011 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.

    If you need any help with posting, try one of these tutorials.

    Mine for today,

    This is an LPG pipeline running through the Marshes in East Linconshire (UK), it just rises out of the ground over a small stream, then disappears back underground on the other side.

    You can walk right up to it and climb all over it.

    Not taken with the best of lenses but it was all I have. There is really only two sweet spots on this lens and this is the worst of the two.

    I haven't been out early in a while. I decided to take advantage of the fog and dampness this morning.

    Maybe crop out a portion of the left-hand side of the frame so the horse in the left third of the picture with open space to the right?

    Fruity!

    Title kinda describes me, too!

    Hello! I'm brand new to the forum, and am just learning how to get out of the auto modes as I try to figure out how to use my new camera. Here's an older photo that I like. Taken with my retired Canon PowerShot A95, 7.8 mm (35 mm equivalent: 36.7 mm), ISO 109, f/2.8, 1/60, built-in flash, auto mode, and a bit of luck. Restaurant in Catalonia Royal Tulum in Xpuha, Mexio. Taken on my honeymoon! Minor level adjustments made in Aperture.

    Comments and critiques will always be most welcome, as this is going to be a life-long learning process. Thank you!
