    It is now November 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.

    Not the best shot in the world, but it was getting dark and I refused to use the flash.

    Portsmouth Zombie Walk 2010 - More than 70 people dressed up as zombies and walked around the city of Portsmouth, banging on windows of pubs, restaurants, shops and even a bus. It was a lot of fun to watch and shoot.

    Fun with nifty fifty

    Bought a nifty fifty lens on Saturday and had a chance to try it out today. It was a lot of fun being able to use the f1.8 to play with depth of field and get some bokeh. Here's one of some fuscias.

    (Nikon D60, 18mm, f3.6, 30 sec)

    From the August meteor showers. The exposure time was a bit too long - the stars just started to streak. Taking into account the crop factor of the sensor 20 seconds would have been better but the Milky Way wouldn't have been as pronounced.

    The silhouette is Wheeler Peak in the distance and pine trees on the edge of the meadow I was in. There wasn't any Moon out and I was at about 9800 feet.

    Baby, baby, don't get hooked on me...

    She was merely part of the "dominatrix" costume for a cyclocross bike rider wielding a pseudo-whip... who she helped 'pull' along the course. Even with the rowdy, hipster Portland bike culture crowd, the cheering turned to gasps and cries of disbelief as they passed by and everyone grasped the bondage connection.

    That's a pretty stunning shot, I'm guessing that's only a second or 2 exposure?

    Excellent exposure, showing the raging ocean waters attacking the shore with its power.
    P.S. Looks like it's about time for some sensor cleaning ... ;)

    0.7 seconds according to the EXIF.


    Great composition, I love how it takes my eyes for a spin along the walkway.

    That's not a Navy Tomcat, it's an Air Force F-15 Eagle.

    Fantastic shot and composition. Love the sharpness on the rocks, and the fluid motion of the surrounding water. Did you use ND filters?
