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.

So I was about to post in the April thread, and then the moment I said "Happy May Day" I realized that we needed a new thread for this month.

So.. Happy May Day!

Oops. Foolishly posted this in the April thread. D'oh!

My tube peeping for today was this cute old German couple who looked like they were really enjoying each other's company.

Can't actually see your flowers unless I click on the question mark. On an iPad today. Anybody else having this issue?
Thanks for letting me know. I have checked it on my iPhone in the Mercury browser, my cMBP and iMacs with no issues. Have also checked it on my son's iPad mini and it is showing on all devices. Wish I knew what to tell you.

No worries. I can see it if I click on it. Here is a screen shot of what I see.

acearchie. Dude. Whoa. Seriously.

That is a beautiful video and you've done a terrific job. It is so cool to see the style you have shared with us on this forum translate seamlessly into video work. I was hooked and had to watch several more videos, each highlighting your talents as well.

I have a feeling we'll be seeing your name on the big screen soon. Keep up the great work!

It's probably an iOS 6 thing. I'm on an iPad 2 (wife's cast off). I spent all my money on photographic equipment!

I wish I had stayed on IOS6 on my iPad 2. It's seriously sluggish and unreliable since I updated. Crashing and stuttering. Even after several clean installs.

Quite exciting as my second video for Florrie came out this week!



Here’s probably my favourite shot from it:

If you are curious here is the video.

Seriously dude that's really good. Proper talent right there!

What a fun thread. Here's a shot I took today of a Great Crested Grebe. Last week there were two chicks, today it's just this one left. Hopefully he will make it.

Taken late in the afternoon.

Whenever I go to London, Mrs MacRy always gives me a two word photo challenge. Yesterday it was either "purple" or "shame" (she always gives me an abstract concept to capture because it amuses her). I got a few shots of people wearing purple but I was particularly pleased with this guy because he definitely has a look of shame on his face.

I watched both videos - very slick. I don't know how competitive that market is, but you've definitely got what it takes.

...I was particularly pleased with this guy because he definitely has a look of shame on his face.
He should be ashamed - isn't that a copy of the Daily Mail in his hand?

Was playing around with Macro and a manual flash. Here's the result. What do you think?
Nice - very pop-arty

LOL. It may well be. He looks like a Mail reader ;)

He had a lot of food remnants down his jumper - they were probably spat out in indignation over some kind of immigrant based story in his copy of the Daily Mail.
