    It's October on the International Dateline.


    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 Fortnightly Challenge and Weekly Contest, and no winners (or losers) either.

    I accidentally posted in the September thread earlier so I figured I would move it to here instead. Although, after seeing the caliber of the submisions thus far, I'm kind of ashamed to show mine :eek: It isn't nearly as good as the others. Good work everyone.

    Inspired by theReef, I recently tried my hand at some shoreline long exposures at dusk... One thing that blows me away is the color saturation... The photos I'm posting from this set have no saturation adjustments... Just a bit of sharpening...

    Wow, this month is off to such a great start! I'm loving every shot so far. :)

    Love the detail! Very well composed and so sharp!

    Mammatus clouds!!!! I can only hope that the weather gods will bestow them upon me and my camera someday.

    And my first shot of the month...

    I feel into the same mistake by posting this picture earlier this morning and not realizing the date

    To answer your question, Rusty, I did not use a speedlight in this photo. The frames of the mine structure (gallus frame) are lined with red LED lights. There are about 10 or so of these structures doting the mountain side and the town has gotten almost all of them lit. Once it gets dark they automatically light up.

    Pretty picture.

    I find my self wondering if the compression is affecting the reflection. How does this look next to the original file?
