    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.


    Policies

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

    *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.



    Note: Anyone may start the Photo of the Day thread on the first of the month GMT. Please copy a quote of this post to maintain all the formatting.

    Could be the very rock they based the lion king on! Still think these lion shots would have been a tad sharper if you'd used your 50mm! :D

    Shot this at a car show a few days back. Lighting was horrible. Harsh, clear blue sky. Hard shadows, etc. Fortunately this 1962 Corvette was parked where I was able to at least shoot a few interesting interior shots. Anyway... I was able to find a few shots I liked out of the mix.

    This car was recently refinished and was flawless. Red interior with red stitched leather throughout. Hard top and soft top both available with the hard top including red leather lining. It was stunning to say the least.

    EDITED THE YEAR MODEL... accidentally labeled it 1952 instead of 1962

    Did someone say "Corvette"? Bet you don't see many of these.

    Could be the same kopje indeed but 50mm :(:(:(! LOL...I was close enough with the 500mm AFB. Close enough to need 3 shots (landscape orientation) stitched vertically to get it all in.

    Here's another view...single frame with a slight crop.

    Hey! @Hughmac don't think I have said it yet sorry... but... Thank you for always setting these up for us at the beginning of the month... It hasn't gone unnoticed.

    I really like this picture. Fantastic details in the horse and its tack but maybe you could work some magic on those two white eyes above it? they are distracting. Maybe dull them down? or clone them out? - just an opinion... ignore me... :)

    Thank you, but I didn't actually ask for the job - but of course anything I can do to help I will - I just check if someone else has started a thread at the beginning of a month, and if they haven't ...

    Cheers :)

    Well she doesn't exactly look like she's about to strike!
    Another beauty.
