    Photo of the Day: September 2010

    It is now September 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.

    Magnificent shot, I love the colors! When did you start using a speedlight for your evening long exposure ocean shots?

    Here is my Photo of the Day: a landmark that should be familiar to many :)

    coffee and wifi

    my favorite little coffee joint...

    I played around with the lens correction tools in LR3 just for kicks... seems to work pretty well, with maybe a slight negative affect on sharpness.

    I now have an appreciation for high-ISO, even if it's the pushed-in-camera kind...

    A simple thing like this shell takes me back to Costa Rica and for a moment I can forget about the reality: having a cold in the cold North. A couple of more months in reality and then my family and I are heading back to the beaches in Guanacaste looking for shells.

    Wow, it's so scenic, honestly couldn't picture something like that in the UK, is the orange glow of the sky the street lights from Manchester?

    ps. Shacklebolt your shot looks like something out of a film, the lighting is brilliant.

    I think it's actually the sensor picking up the last remnants of the sunset from an hour or two before.

    Very nice shot!!!... how did you get the colored sky and the star trails blended together... I would think it's one or the other? Also, can you elaborate on how you lit the foreground? Thanks!

    Awesome use of depth of field! Very cool!

    Mine for today... Neighboring peak to Whistler Mtn at sunset....

    It was cross processed in aperture to make the colours more vibrant. I used a huge car bulb torch to light both the dish and the foreground.
