    Been using Macrumors for years but only stumbled on this forum today because of the August thread ...

    I was blown away by your pictures, and was going to post a picture from my July/August US trip when I realised I was sitting on the September side of the International Date Line, so here goes ...

    Taken by an iPhone 3GS on the Greenway in New York near 77th street early one morning

    Charlie

    My lab, Charlie stuck his head around my driver's seat right after I got in my car.. I had one shot left on the SD card in my D50, so with the little Nikkor 50mm 1.8, I grabbed this shot. I was a bit close with the 75mm equivalent focal length, but really like the lens on the DX sensor format. This little lens will be a constant companion now...

    I can definitely see why. Great pic!

    I posted a landscape pic of Angel Falls in last month's thread, and now I'll post a portrait version. I love my new 10-20mm!

    F9, ISO 200, 10mm
    HDR, handheld and slightly cropped.

    I've never seen that movie, so I'll take your word for it. :D This location is just outside of Ljubljana, Slovenia. Those are the Julian Alps.

    Wow! dllavaneras and phrasiklea, two amazing scenic shots! I think Legends of the Fall was filmed mostly in Montana, BTW. I must say, though, Slovenia is just a beautiful place as is Venezuela.

    Took this photo about two weeks ago on the beach. As this (dslr) is a fairly new hobby of mine, I welcome any tips/critical remarks.

    Taken today of a horse a friend of mine is selling. Nothing fancy, he's just beautiful.

    Thanks...

    Sometimes, when I'm just messing around with my MacBook or want to chill or unwind (like right now) I get a cup of tea and look at the "Photo of the Day" thread. All of these shots are so beautiful and so different. It's like sitting down with a gorgeous coffee table book of the world... only much better.

    Thanks all for sharing your work with the rest of us.

    I think this was the most comfortable sunrise I have ever witnessed. This was the view from the back of our camper so I set my tripod up, and sat in bed and shot away!

    I really liked the purple in the sky on this particular morning after the stars were no longer visible. This purple haze only lasted 2 or 3 minutes before the colors of sun over powered it. Glad I caught it when I did. It was taken about 10 minutes after this shot which is one of my favs from the whole trip!

    I had to do some mild photoshopping to remove a car that decided to park right in front of my tripod.
