    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.

    that means you haven’t spotted the path. Look to the right.

    I often lose the path when I'm in a walk!

    The last of the water at night shots from me taken last week in the city. I loved the ripples left behind this small dinghy as it glided on past.

    Another long exposure of the Newport bridge, this one taken from the bridge to Goat Island.

    135mm Batis lens, 86 sec exposure at f/9 and ISO 100. Was using a 13 stop ND filter that day and one could argue that the pic would have benefitted from a longer exposure with a 16 stop ND filter to further blur the clouds and make the sky less in conflict with other elements in the frame for visual dominance. But I actually like the way this turned out ;)

    Looks like something from a western.

    That's not the prettiest colour is it? Nice car though!

    Nothing wrong with removing distractions. I like the composition with the lighthouse more than the one without.

    Yeah, I saw that after I put it here. I suppose it’s not a double post? :)
