    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.


    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.

    Happy New Year, everyone! When 2016 brings me a working Mac, I'll be back with photos.

    Enjoy and be safe this coming year.

    Love this shot of the nave of Worcester Cathedral. Very well taken, - lovely composition and lines - and, as @Apple fanboy already knows, I must say that I really like English medieval cathedrals.

    Thanks for starting the January thread. And a Happy New Year to one and all on the MR photo forums.

    Terrific lighting and colours. Brooding, strangely still yet somehow ominous.

    Cheers gents - all down to post I'm afraid. Scene was a bit featureless so went wild on PP. Taken with a 10-stop ND to flatten the waves.

    You've done a great job there... I must admit I enjoy my pp as much as actually taking the photos. In my film days I spent most of my time in the darkroom... now I have a virtual one!

    I'd agree with you on the value/pleasure of the post-part of the process but is it 'proper' photography? One for the purists to debate...

    Here's one with a different post-approach taken from the same beach. Comments always appreciated.

    Your images are always beautifully exposed. Mine always look dark and dull.. I need to work on lighting and exposure in 2016

    Only the ones I post here.....I've generally found that the 6D exposes pretty nicely for normal times and for the very long exposures I usually do a couple of bracket shots.
