    It is now October 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.

    Curious if you sharpen for the web at all? it looks like a little sharpening for online display would help out this image.

    I'd call this a light in the dark... and I mean the weather in London. :)

    I did some RAW edits using Elements 8. Just playing around, trying to find a visual 'style' that I like. C&C welcome....

    A really lovely photo that breaks some rules very effectively. Well done.

    Another winner.

    I think the painterly look is part of his aesthetic.

    I think that image would appeal to me more if all the fungiii were in focus rather than only one. Try stopping down some to get a deeper depth of subject(s) imo.:)
