    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.

    A long exposure taken in the city today. This was after a quick play in Lightroom to see if it has legs. I reckon it will be worth the time and effort to take into Photoshop.

    A repost from last month. But since kenoh requested these on a month by month basis, blame him for the repost :)

    Don't take any notice of @kenoh - you know he's in Glasgow, and just wants a cheap calendar? :D

    Cheers :)

    In a @kenoh frame of mind, well not really, it's a film body! Spotted this beauty yesterday in the city, which even today costs more than I paid for my 6D! :eek: This was taken peering through the window, I couldn't afford to enter, we just the day before had to replace the hot water service and now need to have a gas detective come out and find a slow pressure drop leak, or replace all the gas plumbing. We're considering going electric for the heating and cooking if it happens to be the worst case scenario of replacing all the pipes as we're in a double brick structure here.

    Sounds like an expensive call out. Good luck with it.

    As for the Leica stuff, leave it for the Dr's and lawyers!

    You bet it is! $250 per hour! I'm hoping he finds the leak at the first joint he tests in the roof space.

    What about if the better-half is a Dr? She's finishing a Masters degree at the moment, and wants to get her Doctorate. Can I have one by association? ;) I doubt we'll ever have the funds for that sort of kit, what with me volunteering my time most days of the week with my groups, now that the boys are all old enough to be looking after themselves financially, even if the three of them are still at home.

    In my experience a partner on higher income doesn't have the same level of GAS for photography!

    She is supportive of my Leica condition... apparently I am not as much of a stress monkey when I am fondling a Messucher

    I admit I am struggling, as always, with the winter blahs. Seeking every bit of color I can, on this gloomy, grey day. (moved from the January thread. whoops)

    Well keep it up. I've hardly used mine in an age. I'm taking my camera out Sunday/Monday for a rare day out.

    So, couldnt get the Super Blue Blood Moon night before last because of cloud cover. However, last night it was clear so I strapped on the bazooka lens and snapped this.

    While not particularly amazing, I was stunned at the number of stars (view it large, you cant see it here) that the camera picked up - ain't sensor noise as it was shot at base iso short exposure.
