It is March 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.

Another shot from the Olympic Revival DDP (Decentralized Dance Party). The two hosts decided it would be fun to move the entire crowd before midnight. I don't think the police were expecting it. Roads were blocked for a good 30 minutes as people just wondered down the street.

ISO 6400 | 1/100 | Nikon D7000

Photobucket, Flickr, etc. None of them accurately show the color in this photo as I see it straight off of the card. It's a lot warmer before the upload. Oh well:cool:

East Tennessee:

This mythical creature is Rangda. Rangda is the demon queen of the leyaks in Bali, according to traditional Balinese mythology. The leyak is a mythological figure in the form of flying head with entrails (heart, lung, liver, etc.) still attached. It is said to fly trying to find a pregnant woman in order to suck her baby's blood or a newborn child. Don't they sound friendly?

VR, beautiful clear colours. Are you using a polarising filter?

Did a photographic tour of Route 66 in New Mexico this summer. This is my favorite from Gallup, NM.

Even with the inaccurate transfer I really like the colors of this photo.

^^^ Awesome for 6400 ISO! Looking forward to more shots from Sat. if you have them. :)
Thanks so much! Yea, I'm very impressed by the high ISO, although I think the snow might be helping it blend a bit.

I wish I spent more time consciously framing shots, and waiting for the right moment to snap pictures. This photo I think would have been much better if I waited for those two boys to leave the frame, and if I didn't cut her legs off.
