It's September 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 Weekly Contest, and no winners (or losers) either.


*One Photo per Day - Don't post more than one photo each day.

*Quote with Thumbnails - When you quote an image please restore it's thumbnail before replying. You can do this either by installing the AutoTIMG browser extension or by editing the code by hand.

*Multi-Quote - To comment on several photos, click the Multi-Quote button. This puts all your comments in one post. Multi-Quoting is required on all of the MacRumors forums.

*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.

*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 and Lens.

*Photography forum tutorials - If you need any help with posting, try one of these tutorials.

Fujifilm XE1 with XF35mm

Very nice photo MacRy. Love the way the background colours tone nicely with the seeds and the way they capture the eye. That would make a good desktop picture!

I had some errands to run in the city and decided to be all green and take the train. Anyhow, I had some time to kill waiting for the next train so I took a few photos. I have a new appreciation for Alexander.Of.Oz photos.

WOW, very cool shot cebseb. Well done! I love the 200mm f/2.0 lens. I'll have to put that on my Christmas wish list. Of course I'll have to be very, very, very good. :(

The 200 f2 was worth every penny. It has paid for itself hand over fist.

You should think about putting it on your birthday list as well!
