    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.

    Holy cow it's March already!

    For me, the place in the pic as it is now is equally or even more appealing than on summer. I love conifers and snow. Oddly it looks very sunny and warm.

    I know. I just don't think I'd use it enough to justify the expense.

    You can get a 50mm composer pro for $300 (I have no idea how that translates to Euros). Whereas a T-S is a couple of grand. I will spend that much on a lens (okay, my husband will buy me one), but I wouldn't for a T-S unless I was in business or doing real estate photography. A Lensbaby gets me what I need for a good price.

    Thanks folks - mine was a lucky £30 ($42) eBay purchase - a Lensbaby Transformer, micro 4/3 body fit and Nikon lens fitting.
    It is tilt only (no shift), and I am currently mounting a 1970 Nikkor-H 50mm f/2 on it (100mm equivalent in FF terms). I tried an old Nikon 24mm f/2.8 but it didn't seem to have the same effect.
    I couldn't have justified a new Lensbaby at a couple of hundred, but it's quite fun to play with.

    Cheers :)

    Hugh

    Lol. We use pounds not Euros! I've got a bit of a bonus sitting in the bank so maybe I'll have a look at The Photography show in a few weeks. If I can get five minutes off stand!

    Lol. We've used £'s longer than your country has existed ;)
    But suffice to say $300 is about £220.

    Oh. Whoops. I thought you went to Euros then moved back but I never did understand the whole Brexit thing. :confused:

    Nope we've never been fully into the European idea. We're an island nation. Separate. But Brexit is a whole different conversation!

    Have you considered cropping off the upper quarter (or fifth)?

    Doesn't really work for me. I wanted to show off the sky ;)

    And there was I thinking you were going to suggest inclusion of a fire extinguisher !

    Cheers :)

    I think the sky would show off more if it showed more orange.
    Every photo benefits from a fire extinguisher.
