    It's January 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.

    New Years Eve Sunrise Revisited

    Since I was in recovery mode today from my New Years Eve celebrations, I didn't get out and shoot today. Here is another shot from my New Years Eve sunrise shoot...

    New Year Walk

    Happy New Year everyone. A walk in the woods on what was the mildest New Year day for about a century. Comments always appreciated.

    I'm afraid it's been a while since I shared a photo. It's been a bit hectic recently. This was taken in Nice, France

    It does doesn't it? Unfortunately I didn't dare venture in with my camera and stayed on the edge. :(

    Nothing wrong with living on the edge! Tbh I'd rather do that than test my equipments weather proofing.

    Me too!! :)

    Thanks Doylem. I left it there thinking it 'holds it in' rather than letting the reflection go to the bottom but I'm happy to give it a go. I'll post the alternative tomorrow and see what everyone thinks.

    For me, the angle could have been a little kinder. Looks like that rail comes out of his head. A step or two to the right might have helped.

    Yup, I get you.
    Unfortunately the photo without the handrail up the gentleman's nose was not sharp enough.
    I didn't want to take too many and draw attention to myself, but I realise composition is probably still my weakest point.

    Cheers :)
