    It's July 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.

    The Barr-Smith Library on the Adelaide University grounds, South Australia. A handheld quickie taken on Sunday, it's an image I want to get back to with the tripod and tilt-shift lens.

    There's been quite a bit of solar activity over the last week, there's been sightings of the Aurora Australis at locations more north of where usually observed (normally only visible in Tasmania/NZ). Needless to say I was out chasing it with little luck. One morning I set out really early early, I'm not normally this far away from home at sunrise but decided to stop by my favourite place and catch my first sunrise here. The tide and sun position were just right for the composition I was after (and the bird perched on the rock decided to pose as a bonus :) )

    I like the photo, but what the hell were the planners thinking? Also with a straight edge like that, a mask might be better for PP the sky.

    Great PP on this. Really like the effect. Looks like an album cover.

    I was in Louisville last week for the SkillsUSA championships. We stayed an extra day and I was able to get out and take at least one picture not related to the contest. :)

    Taken on my iPhone 6 Plus at home in Derbyshire; I used the Olloclip 4 in 1 lens accessory to capture the above macro. To enhance the image I made some adjustments in Snapseed.

    Aperture: 2/2, Focal Length: 4.2mm, ISO: 32, Exposure Time: 1/6623

    It really is a strange looking building. Thanks for the tip. I hadn't considered using a mask. I'll give that a try on some other angles I took.
